Recently I have been playing around with editable pdfs because I know how much my students love reading books with their names in them.  I just put the finishing touches on my first book, which is a fall themed eight page book that students can read and color.  In order to make a set of books for each member of your class, you only need to type all of their names one time into the class list and the pdf does the rest for you.

When I print my books I trim the tops, bottoms, and right sides.  I leave the edge on the left for a good stapling area.  The file is set up to make it easy to stack, trim, and staple.

Books are all ready to color as well as to draw what your students think of when they see fall.

  1. Hi Laura!
    I LOVE your personalized Fall book! What a great way for kids to learn art, science, math and how to spell their own name all in one!!!!
    So a question from an admire… I have been teaching for a few years now and had to take this year off for family medical reasons. While I have time off, I would like to become a TPT seller. I have specific products in mind but am not sure how to get started. I don’t have PowerPoint nor any of the Adobe series apps. I have been using Open Office Presentation for my classroom needs. I saw your comment on 3AM Teacher about having Open Office. Because I am currently unemployed, I would like to continue using my free software. What is your take on this? Did you stay with Open Office or see the need to move on from it?
    Thanks!

    1. I have started using Adobe Creative Cloud, using Indesign and Acrobat. You can definitely start out using Open Office on TPT. You just need to make sure you make each page a jpg and reinsert it into your file to flatten everything. Open Office has security settings when making a pdf. I had to move on because I was having trouble with the program crashing when I had large files open. It also would lose graphics in files I was working on when I reopened after saving. So, if you are not making huge files with lots of graphics, you would probably be able to get started with Open Office.
