I can read here or there, I can read anywhere!

                                          
        I love making class books.  A few years ago, I made a class book with my kindergarteners and our reading buddies from 2nd grade.  Our book was titled I Can Read Anywhere!  First I read Green Eggs and Ham to the whole group.  We then talked about writing our own rhyming book and decided on a reading theme because that is what we did together (and because I steered the enthusiasm that way:)  We then came up with a really long list of places we could read (I figured that was a good exercise in and of itself). Although we had initially planned to have the kids draw pictures of reading in rhyming places, the kids suggested that we use photographs of them reading.  Although this made the book a little harder because we had to find rhymes that we could take pictures of around our school, I think it made it easier for my kindergarteners to read the very predictable book.  The result was really cute and a favorite in our class library.

  1. This is a great idea to go along with a Dr. Suess unit! I think the kids would really enjoy making and reading a similar book. We may have to try this one in the upcoming school year. Thanks!

  3. I love this! I'll add it to my collection. We make classroom books too. At the end of the year, each child gets at least two to take home as souvenirs.
