Making Mini-Books Last Longer for Mini-Fingers!
Now is the time many teachers are thinking and preparing for next year. I want to share with you one of my favorite tips for your PRINTED mini-books and mini-readers.

I like to use duck tape as a side binder OVER the staples.
Four Reasons:
1. It keeps the book together longer.
2. The BACK page is not as quick to rip off.
3. Little people don't start crying when little fingers get snagged on the back part of the staple! Oh the drama!
4. Teacher stays happy! :)

Guided Reading Groups and Fluency
You can also print 6 to 8 of the same mini-books to make sets to use again and again during your guided reading instruction. The students can use the books with white boards and white board markers. Use one color of duct tape for the binding to keep all the same titles of a book easy to find and organized.
