Class Books

I love making class books!  The kids get so excited to see their work in a "book".  They read them every chance they can.  A few years back, I started sending them home to share with the parents.  I had a chart with all the students names, and checked off their name when they were given a turn to take the book home.  The rotation worked great!  I think one reason the books kept coming back ~ rather than getting lost at their house~ was the parent comment page.  The kids knew that I would read aloud the parent comments, and it would make them all feel so proud.

To save time, I created a letter that I can use for ANY class book.  It explains and gives the parents directions on what to do and when to return it.
