SO on to my newest project. It is a “Back to School Book.” I designed it as an activity for the kiddos, and an assessment tool for me. We begin school on a Thursday (I know-right) and so having something to keep the kiddos engaged and not melting is my top priority.
This book is made so that you can keep it until the end of the year and use it as a starting point with your kiddos.
The pictures show how to put it together and how I used the super cute new duct tape designs and colors to pull it all together. Common Core standards are listed on the last page.
|First page before folding|
|The rest of the book all folded.|
|Staple all pages together.|
|Find you some of this (duct tape)|
|Cut a strip a little longer than the book.|
|Cut slits in top and bottom. Fold to make tabs.|
|Place book about halfway in the middle of the duct tape.|
|Fold the tape over the stapled edge.|
|Fold the tape to the inside of the first and last folded pages, so they don't show.|
|Whaaa Laaa a bound book that will last the year.|
And cute too!
|Comes in TWO versions-First grade specific or generic.|
|The tape is a is a good place for info.|
So here it is. I hope you like it. Or think it could be useful. Or at least don’t think I’m a total dork. You can find your copy here.
If you’d like a copy I will send one to the first person to add a
