Mini Books are an underutilized tool in the elementary classroom!
Mini Books are one of my favorite activities to do with younger students! Mini Books can help teach a new topic or concept, or reinforce an existing topic. I especially like to use mini books in science instruction because they are a great tool to strengthen reading comprehension skills through informational text while also teaching science concepts!
Mini Books are low prep!
Another reason to use mini books in your classroom is they are low prep! They are ready to print and go!
Simple Responses reinforce reading comprehension and information retention!
Mini Books are a great tool to reinforce reading comprehension! Each page provides students with information, and has a question to ensure they are absorbing the information they read!
Great for fast finishers!
Each page includes a black and white image. This is great for strengthening motor skills for very young students! For slightly older students, coloring the images can be reserved for fast finishers!
