I hope you are off to an AMAZING start this year! I saw this post from fellow TPTer Education to the Core, and I can’t think of a more accurate description for the first week(s) of kindergarten! My kids have been in school for almost 20 days, and I am just now feeling like I can take a breath!
One of my favorite things to do in kindergarten is to have the kids create books for our classroom library. I tell them that they are the author’s and illustrators. I make a cover and either laminate and bind or use a binder and place the pages in sheet protectors. However you do it, you kiddos will love reading the books they created themselves!
The first book we have created is called Kindergarten From A to Z! After reading the book From Anne to Zach, each student created his/her own page. We used dot art to fill in the first letters of their name, and then the kids wrote their names on the line below. These looked so amazing! I laminated them and created a bulletin board. When I pull them down next week, I will add the cover, bind it, and place it in our classroom library!
Here is a pic of how they turned out!
