Book Making Centers


Tip Details

Book Making Centers: Create differentiated book-making centers for your classroom based on a topic you are studying in social studies or science, for example, states of matter or community. For your level 2 ESL students, assign them to create books for younger students with one or two word descriptions and illustrations. Provide a variety of paper and art supplies for illustrating text and creating bindings and covers. Each day, provide a mini-lesson on book-making, such as choosing an appropriate title, pictures that help the reader comprehend the text, and using descriptive vocabulary.
