    Materials:

    • 8 ½ x 11 construction paper
    • Crayons
    • Post-it notes

    Introduction:

    Ask the class:

    What sound does “at” make? What are some words that end in “at”?

    Process:

    1. Give each student one piece of construction paper.
    2. Have them fold the paper in half to create a book.
    1. Lay the book flat so that the folded edge or spine is at the top. The construction paper is the cover and should be labeled “My __at Flip Book”. Now open the book.
    2. Pass out a small stack of four post-it notes to each student. Have them stick the stack inside the folded construction paper on the left side. The children should write a different consonant letter on each post-it note (i.e. b, c, f, h).
    3. Pass out another set of four post-it notes and have students place them on the right side of the construction paper.
    4. In the space between the two sets of post-its, have students write “at” on the construction paper.
    5. Next, allow the students to draw a picture of a bat on the top right post-it.
    6. The children should flip to the second far right post-it and draw a cat, the third post-it should have a drawing of something fat, and the fourth should have a drawing of a hat.

    Eg.

    1. Finally, allow students to practice reading their books to themselves by flipping the post-its and matching their illustrations to each word.

    Here are some of the combinations for the word family flip books:

    • AT: bat, cat, fat, hat
    • ET: jet, pet, set, wet
    • IG: dig, fig, jig, wig
    • OG: cog, dog, fog, log
    • UG: bug, dug, jug, pug

    Extender:

    You can also use the word flip book for final consonants.

    Eg.

    Here are some of the combinations for final consonants for the word family flip books:

    • T: bat, cat, fit, hot
    • G: dig, fog, gag, wig
    • D: sad, bed, band, hid
