Here is the overview describing FlipBook:
The Flip Book is designed to allow users to type and illustrate tabbed flip books up to ten pages long. Students and teachers can use the flip book for taking notes while reading, making picture books, collecting facts, or creating question and answer booklets. Students can choose from nine different layouts for the pages of their books (shown left). A blank flip book is available for demonstration and planning.
I think FlipBook is a neat idea and I enjoy looking at the sample book, but I found myself wondering: What are some ways teachers and students could use a resource like FlipBook?
I continued looking at the page where I found the overview and was pleased to find lessons for various grade levels that use this interactive.
Here are a few of the lessons that caught my attention:
- Shared Poetry Reading: Teaching Print Concepts, Rhyme, and Vocabulary (grades k-2)
- Using Children’s Natural Curiosity to Lead to Descriptive Writing (grades k-2)
- Question and Answer Books--From Genre Study to Report Writing (grades 3-5)
