One sheet of paper makes a 2” x 2½”booklet with 26 pages. Use regular photocopy paper to print MiniBooks in black/white or color. Booklet graphics include blackline drawings and/or photographs. Featured words are hidden within all blackline drawings, and students enjoy using a hand lens to find them. After assembly, half of the book’s pages have graphics and half are empty for student writing/sketches or instructor-recorded dictation. Make one MiniBook to be added to a Classroom MiniBook Library or Notebook, or make several of each title to be used in Stations.
MiniBook Title: Shapes - 3D Cylinders
Words Featured: cylinder, rolling pin, cylinder blocks, hay bale, columns, candle, thermos, culvert, glass, pill bottle, fuel tank, markers and pencils, can, garbage can
