Lesson #10002
10002

Create booklets and mini-booklets as an end-of-the-year activity.
Can use either AllStar or SureCut Dies.



Inspire summer planning with creative booklets about Summer Goals. Students enjoy designing their own booklet and pages as they plan and prepare summer activities. The first inside page can serve as a title page, and the following three can celebrate one goal per page. At the end of the summer, students can refer to their booklets and reflect on their summer accomplishments.

Plan and neatly organize top three summer goals in personalized booklets for reflection and review.
