The kids love making their own books, and sharing them with our class and others. You can get your copies at my TpT store here.
Every day at the end of my mini lesson I always ask the kids what they will be writing or working on before I send them off to write. Today we had read the book Diary of a Spider because we have been discussing point of view and voice in writing. The kids liked the story because it was written in the spider’s point of view.
As I sent the kids on their way today I asked one little girl what she would be writing and she proudly responded…”Diarrhea of a Butterfly.”
She was so proud of herself for standing on the shoulders of other great writers! Who knows she could be the next Doreen Cronin or Jeff Kinney.
