I have given a lot of time to handmade book creation lately. E eats them up so quickly.
The last set I made was created from flashcards of opposite words found here
But instead of making them as a big book about opposite, I made loads of 2 pages mini books to really show opposites.
there are more then what is pictured, but X was reading a pile of them while I was taking the pictures.
The flashcards were printed on really heavy cardstock, and stapled as little booklets. I remember seeing something similar on a blog, but I cannot remember where. I thought the idea was pretty neat, and the results speak for themselves.
E can’t get enough of these books. It is excellent vocabulary wise (remember that we are a bilingual family, and english is our (close) second language.), and it is very interesting into trying to decipher what is written on them.
X and M have also used these to expand their vocabulary skills. I am always on the lookout to try to find things to help them boost their english too, and sometimes, I run out of ideas.
But sometimes, the easiest ideas are also the best. And many times, materials I have gathered for E work wonders for the other 2 as well.
