“meet the teacher” night, a week before school starts. You will find 11 pages like this is me, this is certainly my family, i love the colour. An animal i love is.
In school i wish to find out about. I wish to be a ______ when I grow up, I like to eat. I am ____ years old, I am special because.
The household and kids decorate these pages any real way they need and then send them returning to school two weeks later. Meanwhile, the young kids and I also use watercolor
paints and bling to decorate their covers. I also paint certainly one of their hands and then make a handprint from the relative back cover. Our school name and are written on
the inside cover year. The covers are done on cardboard so they hold up consequently they are laminated as well. The leading cover has a day that is first of the child together with title
All About ___. I punch holes into the binding side and use zip ties to carry them together. These books are kept into the classroom all and then go home
for the summer year. These books are looked over significantly more than the other books within our classroom. Just thought I would share that idea.
