You know I love blank books because you can use them across the curriculum or with any grade level. They are open-ended to provide a challenge for all your students, and they are way better than a worksheet. Here's a video that K.J. (grandson) made last summer of me making the house book.
Directions:  Fold the paper in half lengthwise to form a crease. Open. Bring upper left corner to the center crease. Bring upper right corner to the center crease. Fold up the bottom edge to make a house.

Use for: my family (how we celebrate, have fun, etc.)

             book report (title, author, illustrator, favorite scene)
             colors, letters, shapes, number words
             word families  (write the rime on the front and words inside)
             following directions (make a door on the front of the house; put a bird on the  
             roof; put a trash can on the back of the house, etc.)
             animal homes
             NAPPING HOUSE – recall characters
             number house  (write the number on the front and different ways to make the
             number inside)
             homework – write words in their house they can read
