Instructional Strategy: Flip Books

This ReadWriteThink flip book is quick, customizable, and easily made on a copier. All students have to do is cut on the lines.

Flip books make excellent study tools and reference materials.

I have seen this most often used for vocabulary words or for math formulas/processes.

Flip books will work for any concept that can be broken down into smaller parts:

  • The characters of a novel
  • The biomes
  • Types of energy
  • Quadrilaterals

The large white space provides room for drawings and diagrams, as well as text.

We recently made a flip book (using the generator at ReadWriteThink) which included important literary terms for our upcoming novel. This served as a review of concepts we’ve already covered and will be a good tool for them as we complete our reading.

Our tabs included:

  • Narrator and point of view
  • Exposition
  • Flat and Round Character
  • Static and Dynamic Character
  • Setting
  • Internal and External Conflict
  • Foreshadowing and Flashback
  • Climax
  • Resolution
  • Theme
