When the kids in Room 207 find out that their teacher, Miss Nelson, will be away for a few days, they prepare to act up - despite the likely appearance of Miss Viola Swamp, the meanest substitute in the whole world. Luckily, the unexciting Mr. Blandsworth, their principal, takes over instead. Soon the bored-to-tears kids send up a Miss Nelson look-alike to relieve him of his duties. Then it's fun and games until the real Viola Swamp shows up. What would Miss Nelson say if she knew?
Let's make a book about the letter Nn. Print and
color the pages below:
- paper (you can use a slightly heavier paper for a longer
- something to color with (if using B&W template)
- Print template of choice. The B&W version is fun for
young children to color in or for older children to color as
gifts for younger ones. I like printing a color cover and
- Color the template pieces if you are doing the B&W
- If you imagine a 'real' book for a second,
you know that each page has printing on the
front and the back. We're going to fold the
pages to make it like a real book.
- Ignore the cover for now.
- Fold each page along the center dotted
line so the images are on the OUTSIDE and
the blank sides of the paper are on the
inside (imagine you're making a greeting
- You can use a glue stick, if you like,
to glue the pages together (WITH THE
EXCEPTION OF THE COVER!)
- Stack the pages, so the odd numbers are on
top and the folded edges are lined up. Trim
with scissors or paper cutter if needed.
- Fold the cover page along the dotted line,
again with the images on the outside.
- OPTIONAL: You can laminate the cover page
or print it on cardstock if you want it to be
more like a real book's cover.
Assemble the Book:
- Open the cover page (like a folder) and slip
the pages inside so that when you open the cover
you'll see page 1 -- the unfolded edges of the
pages will go against the folded part of the
- Close the cover page and tap the book so
everything lines up.
- Put three or four staples along the edge to
hold the book together.
- Trim again, if needed.
- Flip through the book once, carefully
folding the pages to make the book easier for
the children to read.
Printing the Templates:
- Close the template window after printing to
return to this screen.
- Set page margins to zero if you have trouble
fitting the template on one page (FILE, PAGE
SETUP or FILE, PRINTER SETUP in most browsers).
- There'll be less trimming to do if you also
turn off the headers and footers.
