Here are some pictures of the finished books. For this book, I chose to have them cut the pictures and glue them into their book. Next week, for the different book, they will be reading and drawing their own pictures.
They kept their finished books at school and used them during Read to Self, and then took them home to practice at home. I uploaded a video to youtube (here and here) so that they could practice at home!
I also just made up some for Valentine's day! I have a really hard time finding French books that match the reading levels/vocabulary bank of my students. Even the simple French books tend to have sentence structures that are challenging for second language learners. They get really excited about the mini books because they're able to be successful with each book as they learn to read over the year.
