I’ve never done class books in my classroom before – but recently I’ve been finding ideas and reading about them on various teacher websites/blogs and so I’ve decided to give it a go! Thus, today we started our first class book! Our class book idea is taken directly from Mrs. Levin over at Pre-K Pages (her blog is in my blog list at the left of the page)! Thanks a bunch for the Here Are Our Hands class book idea (go to link for pics) – she has lots of other ideas too! It goes great with our All About Me unit – and I think the children will enjoy looking at it in our class library and comparing their hands with their friends hands! We used multicultural skin tone paints to blend colors that matched each students skin tone and had each child (who was able to) write their name! So far it’s turning out very nicely and I think the end product will be super cute!
I’m curious to know how many of you out there make class books? And how do you use them once they are complete? Any ideas would also be welcome! I hope you are all enjoying your new school year! 🙂
