I have made some small books - 26 of them in total.
They are on a revolving stand in my classroom waiting for authors to write in them.
Each one has a different topic and a student chooses one to write in at 'work on writing' time.
It is just another way to motivate my writers.
The small books have about ten pages in them.
A writer chooses which book to use, opens up to the next page and starts to write.
They must write their name and add an illustration.
The writer then shares, gets feedback and places the book back on the stand waiting for another author.
Print off the packet in colour. I glued mine on black card and laminated them as well as black card for the backs. I placed about 10 pages in each book, stapled them and put black binding tape on the edge to cover the staples. If you have access to a book binder you could use that. I did bind them last year, but found that with constant use the paper kept coming out of the combs that I used for binding.
