Gift of Reading Blog Hop

Welcome!  You've arrived at the Gift of Reading Blog Hop.  Several of my reading specialist friends have teamed up to offer you free literacy resources just in time for the holidays.

Class Books

My students have always loved creating class books.  Each student is responsible for writing and illustrating one page of a book.  The pages are collected, assembled with a cover page, and bound together as a collaborative book.  Students take turns reading their page of the book to the class and then the book is placed in our classroom library.

Creating class books is a fun way for students to practice reading and writing skills.  The books can be completed as a whole group activity or at a literacy station.  


The freebie I'm sharing with you today is Letters to Santa.  It is one of seven books in my Class Books {December Volume}.  It comes with a cover page (color and BW), a writing organizer, and a final draft page.


I would love for you to win a copy of Class Books {December Volume} for your classroom. Here's a little peek at the titles that are included.

Enter to win your own copy of Class Books {December Volume}.  

Don't stop here...there's so much more!  Hop on over to Reading Toward the Stars for Andrea's gift.
