Use these blank books for your writing workshop. Includes an assortment of free books and lined papers for the classroom.
We have put together a new collection of blank books and papers for your writing workshop. We use blank books for our own students because it is familiar to them. When they read, they read books, not a single page filled with text. Using blank books helps them feel like authors which in turn, makes them produce writing they are proud of! Of course, there will still be times when students use lined pages, but on a day-to-day basis, we use blank books more often.
For the books, we have included different cover and page choices within each file. You can download and print the file once and have multiple pages to choose from. This will make creating the perfect book for each student easier. Or, lay out the paper choices and allow your students to choose the ones that they like best!
Blank books are a part of our writing workshop. We teach our students how to use them during our launching unit. If you need help getting your writing workshop started, you might want to take a look at our launching unit of study. Writing Launching Unit
