Once the new cover was in place, I filled an album for each child with pictures of their artwork from the school year. Then, I put the little albums in the inside pocket of their portfolio binders. I was so happy with the results that I started to think of other new uses for these $1.00 brag books for our homeschool. Here are the ideas I have had so far:
- We could make a Regions of the United States book with a small map of the state on one side of the double-page spread and a postcard from that state on the other side to review the regions of the United States that we have already covered.
- These little, inexpensive brag books make perfect places to publish student writing. Final drafts of stories/poetry/short reports could be written and illustrated on 4" by 6" cardstock and then simply slid into the pockets for publication.
