Learning at home ideas: Making Phone Books

Suitable for: Kindergarten, School Age
You Will Need:
Paper, pen, family members’ or friends’ phone numbers, a stapler or brads/paper fasteners
Directions:

Ask your child whose phone numbers she’d like to have in her book. Then, write the name of the person and the phone number on a piece of paper. Your child can create a cover, staple pages together and copy the names and numbers into the book. If writing is new to your child, she may write the names and you the numbers, or vice versa. Adjust the amount of writing based on your child's skill level. Keep it fun - not tedious.

Tip:

If your child puts a lot of effort into creating the book, consider having the cover and back pages laminated. You can typically get this done at a local office or copy store.
