In my room, class books are THE most popular books that students choose to read from our library!
Students love seeing themselves in the books, and they love reading what the other kids have written. The students feel a sense of ownership and pride, when they contribute to a class book. The relevance that the students have to the books make them want to read them over and over!
Here are some of the books that I have created with different classes over the past years.
At the beginning of the year, we like to create a name book.
One year, we took our stuffed lion mascot around the school and took pictures.
We read The Three Billy Goats Gruff, and wrote this book.
The Gingerbread Boy gave us inspiration for this book.
After reading a book about animal babies, we wrote this class book.
Of course, food is a great topic for a book!
And a field trip to the zoo, inspired this book.
And don't forget to include your teacher pages in the books! The kids really love seeing them!!!!
So fill up your classroom library with class books! Everyone LOVES them!
