Flipbook Interactive from Read Write Think!
So to show you what kind of product you will get from this, I developed one that I am creating for my City of Ember unit. If you have read Ember, then you know that it's an awesome book for teaching similes. I can't take credit for this entire idea as I got the simile titles from Elizabeth Hale's Crafting Writers K-6 and have kind of put my own spin on it. It's full of amazing ideas to teach kids how to write by examining some high quality writing. If you don't have this resource it is a great one. I have an exercise book for my kids that is all about the writer's craft strategies and this is my go-to resource. I'm planning for September and I always start with similes because they are fun and easy and can be included in recount writing. This allows them to become great simile experts before they begin writing narratives!
Here is the assembled product (flipbook) that I created on this website! It's simple to create and makes the booklets look a little more "elegant". It is quick and easy to use if you don't have time to fool around with making your own templates. One year I had my grade two's print out their procedural writing final copy this way. They typed the instruction from their rough draft and then they illustrated the picture to go with it in the empty box. They turned out really well and I was able to put them on a bulletin board for their parents to view. Wish I had taken a picture at the time to post for you!! Anyways, hope you enjoy this DIY foldable project!
