These Heart Books were made by 1st graders. (Note, I folded paper and drew half a heart on the fold for each child before the lesson because many of the 1st graders would have had a hard time drawing the half heart big enough for a book. I also drew the half circles on the fold ahead of time.)
Step 1: Kids cut both papers at the same time on the fold. They also cut 3 half-circles on the fold too to create the holes for the yarn binding.
Step 2: Thread yarn through the 3 holes and tie a know at the bottom.
Step 3: Write and illustrate the book, "Why I Love You"
