Books waiting for Authors
This pack will help to motivate young writers and keep them engaged with different topics.
This packet contains 40 front covers, each one different. There are two sizes to choose from. There are color versions and a ‘save my ink’ version. (Revised file has gone from 35 pages to 133 pages in total)
I have glued my covers on black card to give them extra strength.
Laminate the covers and laminate card for the back covers too. Or use in display folders and students can add their writing as they publish work. (see photos)
When making into books I put about 10 pages in each book, which gives 20 children the opportunity to write in each book.
Staple the books together or bind them. I have stapled and added book binding tape for extra strength and to protect little hands from staples.
I store the books in a book stand and have used the cover as a poster above them. Children choose a book in ‘Work on Writing’ time. They write, illustrate and name their page. They must present to the grade to get feedback before the book is placed back on the shelf to await another author.
There are 5 lined pages to choose from depending on what you use in your place in the world. I have blank paper in mine as it cuts down on copying.
At the end of the year each child can take one home.
