Paper Plate Booklets

The cheap white paper plates have so many uses.  You can place lined paper in between two paper plates and staple one end to make a booklet.  Trim the lined paper to fit inside the paper plate booklet and it is ready for students to write inside.  Or students can trim the paper to fit inside and write their story before they attach it to the paper plate booklet.

  • All About Me
  • My Summer Vacation
  • Math Journal
  • Addition Facts
  • Our Field Trip to the Zoo
  • My Family
  • Word Book
  • Colors and Color Words
  • My Home
  • My Favorite Things
  • A Day In My Life (telling time)

The booklets can be stored in a crate in a center for students to read each others paper plate booklets.  Or you can let students check the books out to take home and read.

Another idea is for the teacher to program the books with basic skills for students to practice at school or to take home and practice.  Some ideas for this are:
  • Consonants and pictures of beginning sounds
  • Sight words
  • Contractions
  • Words with blends and digraphs
  • Phrases
  • Nouns, verbs, adjectives
