Your class will love making this flip book, and it will encourage them to write (and then read!) in Spanish. One side of the booklet will include student-created sentences and illustrations about a normal community (I.e. Los niños juegan en el parque.). The flip side of the booklet will include student-created sentences and illustrations about a crazy community (I.e. Los niños trabajan en el hospital.)
Spanish vocabulary: People/professions, verbs, and places
• Print pages 5 and 6 of this document and duplicate front-to-back. Then cut in half and give one to each student.
• They will love building a Spanish sentence for a “normal community” and a “crazy community.” They will also love drawing an illustration for each sentence!
• Check out the last page of this document for some examples from my own students.
• Page 3 of this document includes some useful vocabulary that you may print for students or that might help you come up with some of your own vocabulary idea. I use this activity with younger students (2nd grade), so I use a much more limited list of vocabulary.
• Once you collect one paper from each of your students, stack their papers so that they are all facing the same direction (normal community on one side and crazy community on the opposite).
• Use a hole-punch to punch a couple of holes in the top of the booklet.
• Print out the title page (page 7 of this document) and punch a couple holes in that as well.
• Assemble all pages together with binder rings.
• Set this book out in your classroom for all students to pick up and read when they have free time… or when they come up to you saying, “I’m done already. What can I do now?”
Please send me a message on TpT if there is something about this document that you would like edited (I.e. if you prefer the word "vecindario" instead of "comunidad"). I can easily make that adjustment for you to update the product.
