Flipbooks!

So many of you have been asking about my kids’ flipbooks, so I thought it would be best to go ahead and post some pictures of them.  Since I have finally gotten back my permission slips, it’s time to start blogging again!

Y’all…my kids are rocking it!  They didn’t even realize how much they had written until we took their flipbooks apart and glued them down to manila paper today.  They were stunned!

Ok…so here are a few examples of the finished products.

We put our kernel essay sentences on the bottom of each flap and left the top flap for the title…which hasn’t been filled in yet…because good writers think about the title as they are writing and take something from the story to create a GREAT one!

I also took some pictures of the inside of one student’s flipbook.  You will notice her kernel essay sentence along the bottom, but we only use that to remind us of what to write about…not to actually include in our narratives.

I kinda chopped off the kernel essay sentence from paragraph 5, but it says, “I was relieved.”

Last, I wanted to show you how my students took their flipbooks apart and glued them down to manila paper.  We are going to do our revision stations tomorrow, so before doing that, we needed to color up our own writing.  We are a day behind right now due to science lab and the counselor coming in today.  : /

And there you have it!  Our first drafts of the year!  I’m so excited about all of the hard work these kiddos have done so far!  It’s going to be great!!  :)

Have your students finished their first drafts?  Are you loving what you are seeing?  Please let me know!!

If you still have questions, feel free to leave them in the comments!
