This is a cute book to make for the
children to take home to practice reading. We have them add it
to their Reading Treasure Box.

My Bat Book
This is a little book that is made
when we do our bat study during October. We read lots of
factual books about bats before we do the book. Children
illustrate each page. The front cover is cut from black
construction paper and we glue a paper label on it for the title and
the child's name. I am not sure how clear that these pages
will be to print. But, maybe you can make your own by tracing,
cutting and pasting.
(black construction paper)
Make a label for each book. You can put the label on colored
paper or just plain white.
The Scarecrow Book
This is one of my favorite books.
The scarecrow is reproduced for the cover of the book and each page.
The children color only that part of the scarecrow that is used in

to hold pointer)
This scarecrow is used as a pocket
for holding the reading pointer. Glue the outside edges of the
scarecrow and leave the top part open to make the pocket. It
is glued on the inside, back cover of the book. The crow
(below) is glued (or stapled) to a craft stick to be used as a
pointer to read. The kids love the little pointers, and it
reinforces tracking for beginning readers.
pointer is made and attached to the end of a craft stick.
Since we don't really have many
fall leaves in southern California, we have to be a bit creative.
These leaves were added by importing them as graphics and imposed on
digital pictures of our kindergarten children.
This same technique can be used to
make lots of fun things for books, etc.
Another Halloween Book
"What is Black?"
This book is what we call a "strip book."
Each strip measures about 1 1/2 inches x 10 inches.
We made the covers separate and stapled
all of the pieces together for the children.
