With the Learner Profile as the centre of the PYP and the attitudes as the means towards developing those profile traits, this bundled pack helps to develop this understanding and connection of the two . The IB Attitudes help the children to develop the attributes of the Learner Profile. Flip flap fun! This flip flap book is a fun and engaging , interactive activity that can be used to help students in grades 3-6, learn more about the IB PYP Learner Profile and how it pertains to them as learners. The kids are thus able to make a more complete connection between the Learner Profile and the IB Attitudes.
I have used this activity with my 4th graders at the beginning of the year, over the course of two weeks. Each day we would focus on a few of the attitudes with related texts, and collaborative activities and use the flip flap book to reinforce their knowledge and understanding with a personal direction.
I know of colleagues who have referred to these flip flap books over the course of the year as they focused on a few attitudes and profile traits monthly or within their units of inquiry.
The booklet is easy to assemble, with clear instructions for students to follow independently. It can be:
Glued into interactive notebooks
Used as a stand alone booklet that the children can refer to within their working binders
Referred to for student led conferences.
Getting to know the IB PYP as a back to school activity.
You can find more ideas and resources for the IB PYP in my store and on my blog.
