When is a Good Time to Make Books with K-1 Kids?

When is a Good Time
to Make Books
with K-1 Kids?  
Finding time to make books with your beginning readers can be a challenge.
Here are some good times to keep in mind:
  •  As a learning center activity
  •  Homework
  • When parent volunteers are available (Coordinate this with center time.)
  •  Time with upper grade buddies
If you have other suggestions for how to find time for book-making,
please let me know and I"ll post your ideas!

Here is one of my favorite Cat and Dog books,
with a cool book-making activity that you can download for free. This fun book fits with a social studies theme of "needs vs. wants."
