1. Scaffolding the structural components of a writing genre.
2. Helping students organize/organise their writing in an Informative Report.
3. Writing a Book Report.
Interestingly, the templates other than scaffolding structural elements, also serve as a means of collating information in addition to drafting and editing.
Once students have edited their writing for accuracy then they can refer to their flipbook when publishing.
The templates also serve a dual purpose. Other than compiling them to create a flipbook, they can also be glued into an Interactive Notebook.
I have my students first cut out and assemble the templates to compile the flipbook. Then they work at their own pace researching and finishing each section. This will be their first draft.
Finally, students publish their research on lined publishing sheets. They refer to the edited information collated in their flipbooks.
A teacher marking rubric will help you assess students’ completed flipbooks for structural components and content.
Once all students have completed their research flipbooks, they look truly impressive displayed on the bulletin board. Be ready to receive many compliments from others.
You will find some fun flipbooks on:
Narrative, Opinion, Persuasive Writing
