This is one of my favorite books because it's so easy to make and can be used in multiple ways.

Materials: 2 sheets of white paper

Directions: Fold two sheets of paper in half. Make tears (or snips) about a thumbnail apart down the fold. Bend one tab forward, then the next backward, and so on to bind the pages together.

Use for:
retelling a story/story elements
letter book/vowel book
number book/shape book
“The Book”/ “A Book”
coordinate with a unit or theme
environmental print/cut out words they can read
word families, opposites
write the room
writing original stories, journals
chit chat books (teacher and child write back & forth)
note taking
vocabulary/spelling words
Monday – write a word on each page
Tuesday – write the definition
Wednesday – illustrate or cut out a picture
Thursday – write a sentence

Hint! Fold paper lengthwise to make a tall book.

Cut paper in half to make a little book.

Use a colored sheet of paper on the outside and a white sheet on the inside.
