Do you read the fairy tale “Jack and the Beanstalk”?

It’s an old-fashioned favorite of mine, and perfect for practicing the “sequencing and retelling a story” standards.

This quick, easy and fun Jack and the Beanstalk “flip” book, where the drawbridge of the castle or the cottage door, is a little booklet, will help your students sequence & retell the story.

There are 2 “print & go” booklet options to choose from: one featuring the giant’s castle, the other the cottage, where Jack & his mom live.

Pick your favorite, or give students a choice.

There are full color patterns so that you can quickly & easily make an example to share, plus black & white templates, so students can make their own.

Children color, cut & collate their pages, then add the cover.

I've also included an optional title page, "Once upon a time" page, plus a "And they lived happily ever after page" too.

Since children enjoy giving their opinions, there's also a "thumbs up or down" rating page, along with a star ranking as well.

Since there are many versions of this fairy tale, I’ve included 3, “giant’s treasure” page options.

Check the PREVIEW to see samples.

When everyone is done, practice retelling the fairy tale “Jack and the Beanstalk” by calling on a child, who explains what is happening in that graphic.

You could also ask, “Is this the setting of the story?”, “Is there more than one setting?”, “Is this the beginning-middle-or end of the story?” etc.

Afterwards, for more reinforcement, have students pick a partner and take turns sharing their booklet with each other.

To check comprehension, & reinforce the “sequencing a story” standards further, I’ve also included several “Here’s What Happened…” writing prompt worksheets.

You can use one of the colorful templates to do this as a whole group activity with younger folks.
