Get your students to love writing from the very first day of school with this fun and creative back-to-school resource! This will make a great addition to centers and writing workshop for the beginning of the year. Simply choose the pages you'd like your students to include in their books, copy, and let their creativity flow!
These pages are meant to fit perfectly onto the 8x8 blank books from TARGET! Be sure when printing that you UNSELECT the option "fit to page". You don't want that, as it will cause the pages to print too large for the book.
Let your students' creativity and writing skills fly while they complete the pages. You can guide them through as a whole group, or you can lay out the various pages for the older students and let them work independently!
I have done this activity for the past 3 years in my classroom, and they love it. As students finish their book, they get to share with the whole class. We learn more about each other, and they get a wonderful KEEPSAKE to take home. There is nothing like using those blank books to make students feel like "real" authors!
Enjoy!! Don't forget to leave feedback and get your TpT credits!!
