Fun Flip Books for Short Vowels and a Prefix Flip Book Freebie

My students love, love, love books!
They love to read books.
They love to write books.
They love to illustrate books.

I love books too!
And I love to make books for my students to use.
Since they love them so much, they don't realize they are doing school work. And that is just fine with me!

I am working on a new series of books for my students. 
Flip Books!
I know they will LOVE them!

I just finished the short vowel version.
Included in the pack, are one or two books for each vowel, plus a book that includes all vowels.

There are 5 different versions so I can easily differentiate for my low, on level, and high students.

Here is an example of Version 4. Students fill in the first and last letter of each word. They color in the pictures too.
Then, they cut out the six boxes and staple them to the right side of the book.

This is what a finished book looks like.
This is how they flip through the pages to read the words.
*Please note that the clip art was updated after these photos were taken.

These books are great to use for literacy stations, whole or small groups, assessments, and homework. They are easy to prep (just copy enough for your class) and easy for the children to do on their own. And they can be read over and over again.

You can find these books here.
Stay tuned for more editions!

This week, my first graders are learning about the prefix re-.
I made a flip book for them to help them learn how to use this prefix properly and to help them remember what each word means.

First, they read the word and write it on the line, adding the prefix.
Then, they write the meaning of the new word.

Here is how the book looks completed.

Easy to make and fun to read!

I added another prefix and two suffix flip books AND a cute poster!

For those looking for more prefixes and suffixes, I created a resource with 38 different flip books! I also updated the posters, added answer keys, and included an editable version. You can check out the full pack by clicking the image below.
