Word Family Flip Books

I was looking on Pinterest for some ideas about how to help my 5 year old start learning how to read and came across these word family flip books.  I tried to click the link but the blog no longer exists or I would totally give whoever it was credit!

The flip books were very easy to make.  I used a piece of card stock for the outside and construction paper for the inside.  I cut the construction paper to cover about 1/3 of the card stock.  I didn't have a stapler long enough to reach the middle because my hubby stole the big one and took it to work so I punched 2 holes in the construction paper and lined it up with the card stock.  I used yarn to hold it together with the knot on the outside.  Sorry I don't have any pictures of the construction, but I wasn't sure it would work!

I wrote the first word on the card stock and used the construction paper to change the first letter. The flip books were done!

My son loves them and knows almost all of the words already.  It is fun for him to flip through them and easier than flashcards because they all stay together.

I hope you enjoy your word family flip books too!


I look forward to your comments, they make my day!
