Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Native American Research Project: Pop-up Class Book Publishing (Lesson 7 of 8) - Section 2: Explain the Pop-up Book Page


We have many class books that we create throughout the year.  Class books have individual pages created by one or more students.  These can be about a particular topic that we're studying, such as landforms, or a skill, such as using adverbs in a sentence.  For this particular lesson, our class book is titled "Our Native American Research Pop-up Book".  Each student created their own page, however, I've clustered all of the pages about a particular tribe together.  

The students love to listen to me read class books aloud, and then they enjoy reading and rereading them when they become part of our classroom library.  I have a special basket dedicated just for classroom books! I've also had students record their book pages, and we've published them on our webpage as an online digital book for families to enjoy at home.  Class books are a great way to integrate topics, skills, writing, and classroom community all in one!
