Making learning meaningful to students is the most important gift a teacher can give! I designed this pack after years of making class books with my own students. Class books are one of the most powerful ways to get children reading and writing. We often read mentor texts to students for responses, or to show them writing techniques, but this pack was designed to put the power of being an author in the hands of the child! Using the books with sentence frames will allow even your reluctant writers to feel empowered and successful. Adding a “class books” bin your classroom library will make a huge difference in your students’ reading and writing skills.
36 weeks of classroom books (this is a growing bundle 9 weeks included)
A bonus birthday book has been included. Celebrate student birthdays by having each student make a page in the book for the birthday girl or boy. Bind it and give it to them as a gift!
Each week there is a mini-lesson and word bank for teachers to use
Each class book is linked to 3 new sight words to either read/write
(K-1; Fry’s 1st 100) This allows students to be reading/writing these sight words regularly as these books will constantly be checked out!
Each class book is linked to a mentor piece of literature
Each class book is offered with two formats: with and without sentence frames
Sentence frames are so powerful for little learners. It allows them to really get a feel for the writing process and how writing should sound and look.
Each class book has two different covers to offer: one with a real-life picture and one with a blank cover to make your own
Each class book has a model story already written to compliment the cover with the real-life picture
Each class book is differentiated to optimize student learning
(There is a kindergarten level, first grade level, and second grade level. You could work on these in small groups and differentiate the class book page you are providing your students.)
Each book is progressively more detailed than the last
Perfect for student portfolios.
Make a copy of each student’s page to save and bind for the end of the year and create their own book using the provided cover.
