Reading Interactive Notebook
: Flippables to Get Kids Thinking...... This is a pack of 40 reading flippables to compliment your reading interactive notebook.
They can be used with any book.
**20 flippables suitable for events that take place in the book
**20 for characters in the book
The flippables do not specify a specific event or character, so they can be repeated in a year if you wanted to do so. Basically, they can be used over and over. :-)

They are perfect to use as a center activity or any time you are having kids respond or reflect on what they have read.
Each flippable is themed to go along with the task on the flippable.
For example, one flippable is a flip flop outline and the title is "A Real Flop!". The task then tells the students to tell why the event was a big 'flop'. Why did the event not go as planned.
There are many ways to use these. You might want to have your class all do the same flippable. For example, if you were doing a class read aloud, you might pass out the same one and have each student reflect on the same event or character and then discuss.
You could even use these as a writing center activity where students would have several choices of flippables. They could then complete one of their choice on an event or figure that fits the topic on the flippable. Maybe on someone or some event you have already studied this school year.
A few other examples of the flippables included:
**You Really Fumbled the Ball: This one is football themed. Students write about a character that made a fumble. They tell how the person messed up or made a mistake, using facts from the book to support their answer.
**Sticky Situation: This one is bubble gum themed. Students write about a character that was involved in a sticky situation. Tell about the situation and what role the character played.
As you can see, these are a fun way for students to sort of go outside the box with the different themes, and then using the themed flippables to reflect on people and events from the past.
