Your students are authors! This is a pdf file to make a booklet with upper grade - solid writing pages. Solid lined pages complete with illustration blocks, a title page and a dedication page. Print 2 sided, add a construction paper cover of your choice, fold and staple down the middle.
For my class, after they wrote their stories and created these books as a final copy, we went to a voice recording website and they read and recorded their story. We took the recording and linked it to a QR code which we glued into the front cover. And now their story just became a read-aloud book! (The QR Code could be scanned by a free app with our 1 class iPad or any smart phone.) This transformed our listening center and inspired more writing! And parents loved it! The website I used for this was Vocaroo but I'm sure there are others.
