|For each flip book assigned to a unit I assign credit to coloring the tabs and the clip art, maps, and graphic organizers included in the flip book. You can give time in class to do this or assign it for homework.|
|You can print in gray scale as well as in color. The color shown is so light that a gray scale copy will look slightly shaded.|
I have students that get so good at assembling flip books, that they serve as my "flight stewards," they go around and assist other students in need of help. By the second unit of using flip books, I am swarmed with kids asking if they can help others. What a great way to have peer experts!
Student centered secondary classrooms are a way of the 21st century, but so are distractions with tween/teen drama, lack of motivation, and technology, if not managed. The flip book keeps interest and ownership for learning.
|Wonder, Novel Flip Book|
|Shown here is a novel flip book for, The Old Man and the Sea, by Ernest Hemingway. |
All the inside pages of a novel flip book are filled with assessment activities.
Don't forget the parents! The flip book for concepts are a great learning tool for parents, too. Foldables and flip books would be especially helpful with math and science concepts.
|You can share your flip book for a specific concept with families. During homework, the parent can refer to the flip book for assistance.|
