Fourth: Guided Bookmaking Ideas
If you're looking for writing prompts (ideas to spur on writing) to go along with the bookmaking why not consider making an alphabet book with your child? My son and I have done this as part of learning letters. I made a book with a page for each letter. I wrote a capital letter and it's lowercase partner on each page, and then I had our son pick something to go with the letter for each page, such as 'ant' for the letter A. Then we'd draw the picture.
For older children, consider making a book to go along with something you are learning. For example, are you learning about states and capitols? Then, why not make a book featuring each state and its capitol, along with computer generated pictures of the state's flower, bird, or tree.
Another idea is to do a word book with big words, inspiring words, or nonsense words. You could have a definition on the page, along with the word, and an illustration of each word.
The ideas are endless for guided bookmaking. Community helpers, careers, musical instruments, sports, and any topic of interest to your child could become a book!
