********UPDATED 1-8-15 with additional DOTTED LINED pages for younger students as well as the option to have 5 THINGS instead of 10 for differentiation!!*********
Have you ever sat there trying to figure out a cute and personal gift to have your students make for parents/guardians?? Well, I feel like I do this every year :) so I decided to create a little book that the kids can personalize with the 10 (or 5) things they love about their parents/guardians!
You students can brainstorm the 10 (or 5) things that they love about someone in their life. They will get to personalize it with drawings and their writings! This will be a wonderful keepsake to pull out year after year!! (works for Valentine's Day but also throughout the year)
This was inspired by the book by Daniel Kirk called Ten Things I Love About you. It is adorable and a great way to introduce this activity to your students. Of course, you do not need the book for the activity. It would simply be a great compliment to the activity.
Included: (all book pages are half page so 2 on a sheet)
Teacher Information pages expelling assembly and setup
Cover Page (2 options, 1 for 10 things and 1 for 5 things)
Meet the Author Page (several differentiated options for 1st person, 3rd person, and a list)
Table of Contents Page (optional) with 2 options (10 things or 5 things)
Content Pages NOW with a solid lined option AND a dotted lined option for younger students! (2 sets of 10 pages with a photo box with 1 having lines to write and 1 having a sentence starter)
Final Page (photo box for writer and intended recipient) This page is included after each 10 content pages to allow easy printing options! :)
Thanks and Credits Page
I hope you and your students have a great time creating their personalized books!!
