Making whole-class books in French class

whole-class books in French class

 Are you looking for a collaborative classroom-building activity for your French classroom? Can I suggest getting started with making whole-class books? 

I have always loved class-made books for a few reasons:

-They help create a sense of community in the classroom

-Students get to be published authors

-My students enjoy looking at other students’ work through the years

-They help build an authentic classroom library

-They get students excited about learning to read and write in French


I’ve put together a collection of my favourite whole-class book templates. These writing activities are low-prep and easy to use. Use the class book activities as: mini writing lessons, morning work, or as writing centers. Each class book topic includes: a full-colour book cover and 3 writing template pages to allow for differentiation. Find the French class book templates from The French Nook.


1.     Print the included book cover and a writing page for each student.

2.     Have each student complete a page by completing the writing prompt and decorating the page.

3.     Place the pages in sheet protectors and into a binder.  Slide the cover into the clear window, and place the book in your classroom library!
