Flipbooks are awesome, but DOUBLE SIDED FLIPBOOKS?!?! Even better! Half the paper, half the time, half the stress! NO CUTTING, NO GLUING, NO HASSLE, NOTHING! I worked for weeks perfecting the margins and layout for a double sided flipbook template and it was worth it! Being a classroom teacher I know how precious our time and copy paper is. So this double sided flipbook was a great solution. You get a 6 page booklet, but will only use 3 pieces of paper! Not to mention- it’s a GREAT assessment piece! One problem as a teacher is keeping papers, assessments, graphic organizers, etc organized. This flipbook is the answer to that problem! Students will have everything they need right at their fingertips!
This flipbook is all about character traits! We are doing an ELA unit on learning all about characters. In order to understand a character’s actions and words we need to understand how he or she feels. Those are character traits! Our instructional coach really emphasized how we want to shy away from the commonly used “mad,” sad,” and “happy” character traits. Instead, we want to expose students to more meaningful and elaborate ones, like “enraged,” “depressed,” and “ecstatic.” This flipbook helps with that! My students helped me come up with a list of 8 character traits that they liked. I created a spot for them not only to identify a book character with that specific trait, but also a place for them to draw a picture of themselves showing that trait. The results are hilarious! (I especially love seeing my students draw themselves as sneaky and lazy! Some drawings were a hoot!) I will add another character trait flipbook soon with different character traits! Stay tuned…
*The 8 character traits in this book are: Grumpy, brave, lazy, kind, shy, sneaky, proud, and embarrassed.*
This product can be used in a variety of ways- hallway displays, assessments, projects, even read alouds! The possibilities are endless! I deliberately made them to be more open ended for students to answer, so this flipbook can be differentiated for ANY type of learner. Everything you need is contained in this packet, even a tutorial on how to print.
