We review our page templates for classroom books and make recommendations based on grade level and number of participating students.
Find many great tips on students' illustrations and writing, photos, and book assembly. Use the Checklist & Order Tracker (PDF) for the best quality classroom books.
For books involving 10 to 33 students, each student is limited to 2 pages (work appears side by side), and any template may be used. For books involving 34 to 66 students, each student is limited to 1 page (use template L1, P1, or P4). Books cannot exceed the page limit. Before ordering your FREE Student Publishing Kit, determine the appropriate template for your students. Review templates below or watch Choosing the Best Template.
You may request any Standard Templates be shipped with your kit, or download any Standard or Themed Templates to get started immediately.
