Book Release Party

Hey y'all! I'm so excited to share the details of our book release party with you today! 

For a portion of our kindergarten curriculum at my last district, we worked on writing personal narratives. This was the perfect time to create a keepsake for my kiddoes! There are a few different ways that you can publish hardcover books with students. I purchased Illustory kits from Amazon.

What I liked about these kits was that each student got their own box and set of markers so they could keep track of their own work. We did one page per day in our books, then I mailed them in the pre-paid envelopes to be created. We had our books back in about two weeks! Then it was time to plans our big book release party!


Popcorn boxes: Five Below
CELEBRITY TAPE: Party City


The gold decor was purchased at Dollar Tree!


I found that fun HOORAY balloon at Target!


I always love to put some tape over the door because it makes it even more exciting for the students to walk into the room. 


Those gold poles? Toilet plungers from Dollar Tree and gold spray paint. Yep!
I also grabbed that red carpet from Party City so that I could reuse it. You could also use red butcher paper though.


Here's what our classroom looked like when the students walked in. Celebrity status! I wrapper their books in red paper and wrote them each a personalized note in the front that they could keep.


Then they got to walk the red carpet to the stage to read their book aloud!




It was such a memorable day! Each child had the chance to share their writing and experience being an author and illustrator. This is something I will continue to do for years I think. My students truly felt like celebrities.

Bye, y'all!
