I also added some apple napkin books to my writing center for independent use this season. Simply staple blank (or lined) paper inside of any decorative napkin for a quick book. My students use the cover as inspiration and can write whatever they choose inside based on the topic. For example, students could write an apple poem, recipe for applesauce, narrative about a trip apple picking, informational piece on the life cycle of an apple, etc.
I add different covers throughout the year based on seasonal needs and topics we are covering. I also make sure to have other high interest covers for year round use (sports, princess, pirates). Dollar stores are great places to find these or the clearance section at the end of a season.
