Included in this download are 10 flip-book options to be used throughout the month of October!
I've found that "flip-books" truly help students with their writing. The format lessens anxiety of staring at a blank piece of paper, the interactive layout appeals to students, and it's a great way to freshen up a writing assignment! Accompanied with a directed drawing or craft, these also make a wonderful bulletin board display to show off student writing!
These flip books are to be used as a space where students can organize and create their OWN writing for the topics of your choosing. This product DOES NOT contain any informational, fictional, and/or opinion writing to guide student response. These are to be a supplement to YOUR teaching/introduction of these topics.
→ How to Carve a Pumpkin
→ All About Pumpkins
→ Fire Safety
→ Red Ribbon Week
→ Staying Drug Free
→ All About Bats
→ My Halloween
→ All About Christopher Columbus
→ Story Elements flip-book to be used for ANY fictional October read aloud
→ Story Structure flip-book to be used for ANY fictional October read aloud
While there are many ways to assemble “flip-books” (some more efficient than others!) here is a quick rundown of what works for me.
Step 1: Print each page in order. Jazz it up with varied colored paper or simply print on white copy paper.
Step 2: Place pages staggered on top of one another (with the titles showing) working from the last page to the first.
Step 3: Fold pages over (making sure it ends up looking like the picture example). Do two staples at the top and you are all set! Don’t staple up at the very top. Instead, move down a little bit (within the top of the frame) and then staple. That way ALL pieces are secure and don’t become loose.
NOTE: I often ask volunteers to assemble these books for the class and they ALWAYS end up doing it their own special way. Find what works for you and/or your volunteers!
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me!
