I agree with Elizabeth - be careful about expecting to do this as a lesson if you are a beginning teacher. The lesson is way too long for even my first graders, and to expect at least two sentences about their pictures is unrealistic. The basic idea is good, but it needs to be scaled back and broken up into several lessons even for beginning of the year first graders.

This lesson could be used very effectively in kindergarten! It could be broken down into smaller lessons if needed for the attention span of your students. I have had my kindergarteners create staple-less books before and they enjoy making any type of book to share with their parents, especially one about their teacher's "secret life." The book could also be accomplished through shared writing as well.

This is not a kindergarten level lesson. There is no way beginning of the year 5 yr olds can attend to a lesson more that 10-15 minutes in length. Also the book without staples would be almost impossible.
