Using Reproducible Mini Books

Teaching reading is next to impossible without LOTS of small books to give to my students.  No matter how good your reading series, nor how many books you have in your classroom library, you still need mini books for your students to keep in their bookboxes in the classroom or to take home for their private library.  Either way, the point of mini books is to give your students the repeated practice they need to build fluency.  And in many classrooms, these are the only materials available that are appropriate for emergent readers -- the basal series is just too hard, and doesn't give us the tools we need to bridge the gap between non-readers and beginning readers.

A lot of people on the KinderKorner Mailing List have been asking about inexpensive reproducible blackline books to extend their classroom materials for emergent readers.  Here are some of the things I do with mini books in my classroom, to get more mileage from my materials:

 Now That I Can Read

     I used to need somebody
     To sit and read to me.
     I'd look at every page they read
     And listen carefully.

     But now that I am in first grade,
     I'm filling up a shelf
     With stories, poems, and other books
     That I can read myself.
