Isn't the back-to-school season is a great time to find bright ideas? Teachers are sharing their organization tips, decorating ideas and fun ideas for the first days of school. I'm joining along with directions for turning popcorn bags into popcorn words (high-frequency or sight words) books.
Purchase a few packs of popcorn bags from your Dollar Tree or other discount store. To make one book cover...
Carefully open the bottom of the bag.
Flatten the bag.
Trim the bottom off the bag so the bag is now 11" long.
Open the bag and flatten it again as shown.
Cut along one side.
Now you have your book cover! Laminate, if desired.
Add the pages you'll be using this year for sight-word practice. Staple the sides.
I haven't made my books for next year yet, but when I do they will be stored in a popcorn bucket. (Does it bother anyone else that popcorn is two words on these products?!)
