    Bare Books
    By NJ Teacher

    I do two things with them. We used one set of them for books of geometry definitions in math. We were getting ready for standardized testing, and there was a lot of geometry on it. We defined and illustrated the terms and concepts so they had a picture dictionary of words for geeometry. That idea could be adapted for any unit. My favorite use of them though, is for family memory books. In March, I send home directions for them to work on a story with their families. I give a date when they're due. They are so special, and many families tell me what a keepsake they are. The families work together to design and illustrate a story. The finished ones are memoirs, fanstasies, nonfiction and many other genres. The children love to see each other's stories!
