Every month we write a class book that I copy for all my families. I think it's good for them to see the progress we are making month-to-month in our writing, plus I like to read what the kiddos write-I think they might want to share in that as well.
For December we write a class book with the prompt "________is a gift to our class because......". Each student comes up and writes some sentences to describe what they like about their friends. And I write the last line for each student. I know the pics aren't the best because I covered up all the names-but hopefully you can get the idea.
