Moon Phase Booklet

This was a cute moon phases booklet that a teacher shared with me. She made it at a training and we were looking for the easiest way it could be done with her 80 fourth grade students (once we work it out I will post!).

Was wondering if you found an easy way to mass produce the books? LOVE the idea!

Jennifer - Sorry, not yet.I might take a look at it this summer to see how that might be done easily.

I did it! I was thinking about it all summer, and finally put my brain to it.
I think what I am going to do, is trace my book onto tag board for a pattern. I am going to make a pattern for each table (so about 5 patterns for 20 students). I am then going to have each student trace each page onto a big piece of black paper (if the patterns don't fit, the students will have more paper. After everyone is done tracing and cutting, we will put them together as a whole class. Then the students can glue the words in separately. This is the only way that I have come up with mass producing it.

I am actually going to be making these with a 4th grade class on Friday. I am cutting all of the circles now and stapling the books together. It is not bad once you get it going. Thanks for the idea.
