One of the many themes I do with my students is fairy tales, they absolutely love this genre.
No matter what time of year you slip in a fairy tale or two, I think your students will enjoy making a “flip-the flap fairy tale face”.
This sly wolf, will help students practice the sequence & retell a story” standards for the “Little Red Riding Hood” fairy tale.
I purposely did not number the pages, so you can check comprehension.
This also allows you to choose less pages for preschool students, who can easily sort beginning-middle-& end, then retell the story with a limited number of “picture prompts”.
Simply run the wolf pattern off on construction paper or card stock.
Students trim & add a few highlights with crayons.
For some 3D pop, have children bend the tips of the ears forward.
The wolf’s “mouth” tells the tale, as students color, cut & collate the “muzzle-shaped” pages into a little booklet, which is then glued to the wolf’s face, making a “flip-the-flap” activity.
I've included black & white patterns, as well as colorful ones, so that you can quickly & easily make an example to share.
I also drew a completed face of the wolf pattern, should you want to make a mask.
When everyone is done, have children pick a partner and take turns telling the story of “Little Red Riding Hood” to each other. We sometimes do this sort of thing with our older reading buddies.
