Who's in the Club?

Here is a Rockin’ Idea with pictures: 
I like to make classroom-made books for my students to read in the classroom.  Kim Adsit makes a book called, Who is in the club?  Check out her site -  I heard she is going to have a blog very soon, too!!!  Here is what I did with her idea...
Each page is labeled with a task that the students need to learn.  For example…I can tie my shoes club.  When a student completes the task he/she will sign the page in the book.  I love this…it makes the students feel special when they accomplish a new task and I do not have enough room on my walls to display it all.  I think I might even laminate my book before the school year, so I can use it each year.  Kindergarten kiddos LOVE sharpie markers as much as I do!  

I am so SORRY.... I cannot get the picture to turn.  URGGG!!!!

I found some cute ANT ribbon so I added the caption - F"ANT"ASTIC LEARNERS ! under the title.

In my classroom "Who's in the Club?" book, I will have these pages:  
read all grade level sight words, recognize uppercase letters, recognize lowercase letters, produce letter sounds, recognize rhyming words, produce rhyming words, recognize ending sounds, recognize beginning sounds, recognize color words, print my first name, print my last name, days of the week, months of the year, say my address, say my birthdate, say my phone number, identify coins, tell time to the hour, name 8 shapes,  continue and develop patterns, tie my shoes, count sets of objects to 30,  count to 100, count by 5's to 100, count by 10's to 100, count by 2's to 20, write to 100. 

I will be adding my printable pages on Monday, August 1st to my classroom website. 



  1. I love it! What a great idea! The students will feel proud when they get to write their names on a page. Thanks for sharing! I am going to pin it on my Pinterest classroom ideas page so I can remember to make one.

  2. This was one of my favorite ideas from Kim Adsit too. I like the way you decorated the pages, especially with the lips! Too cute. BTW, it was nice to meet you at Kim's session. Fran introduced us right before it started.

  4. What a wonderful idea!!! I have tried the poster route and we love to make class books! It never occurred to me to mak a book with this idea! Fabulous!

  5. THIS IS GENIUS!!! I usually display them on bulletin boards, but I LOVE this ideas so much more b/c then I have extra space on the walls to display other things! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Yeah! Whaa-Hoo! That is so sweet of you! I have a feeling my students are going to love this as much as we do. Yes...Mrs. Lopez, I remember meeting you. Sorry if I seemed short. I just didn't want to miss any of Kim's ideas she was sharing.

  8. Great Idea! This will go great with the certificates I designed and made today. You have just solved the delimna of where I was going to put the clubs at on the wall! Thanks for sharing this idea it came at the most opportune time for me! Adding a classbook to my list of things to create.

  9. I love this idea!!! I have very little wall space and never have enough room to display stuff like this! I will be making one of these very soon! We start back on August 5th!

  10. That's a great idea! I've been thinking of doing this but really have no where else to display anything. The book idea is perfectt! Thanks!!
