The idea behind the mini-books is from Alenka, a member of ESLprintables. I made my own mini-books based on hers.
This one is about Thanksgiving. It tells the story in a very simple way (it was NOT easy to simplify it so much! This was the best I was able to do.)The second file has no story, just some images, thinking in the 1st and the 2nd Grades.
The mini-book can be used for students to have a summary of a topic you are dealing with (or that you have just taught). You can try to have the students reading the mini-book after they have done it. Then, they just have fun colouring it.
You can have a mini-book with only one A4 page! Isn't that great?
How to make your mini-book? Just check the link on Alenka's webpage, where you can also find lots of mini-books made by her. Just go through the links on the left and you will find lots of great stuff! If you click on "Funny English", there are many more things to find!
