My coworker makes these cute books every year after reading The Important Book. We used the sentence starter: The important thing about my mom is that... The last sentence was: But the most important thing about my mom is that... and they repeat the first sentence they wrote like in the book. We used six pages in all with the last page being about the author. This is the first year we've made them and I just loved them, they turned out so cute and their writing was amazing. The students only got one copy and had to try their best the first time. They all did such a great great job sounding out words and using their best handwriting.
I taped the magnets I made from their art to the inside cover.
