After being part of Alma Flor Ada and F. Isabel Campoy’s “Authors in the Classroom”, I started doing bookmaking workshops with my students and their parents.
During these workshops, all around the classroom, parents and children cut, color, edit, read and share their creations.
These are authentic books. Children write and read about their names, parents, friends and traditions. In these books their parents become they main characters and they are the stars.
It is a magic moment to see proud children and parents holding THEIR books and reading them.
What a wonderful experience is to see a family having a great time writing their own books!
