This Flip Book activity is a fun task an elementary student can do independently using a Work System. You can substitute any pictures your student would prefer.
Materials you’ll need:
- 2 copies of a picture or scene
- page protector, laminator or clear packing tape
- sticky hook & hoop fasteners
- instructions with pictures & text
To set up the project, please follow the Teacher Instructions below. The student can follow the directions in written and picture form, also in the attachment section below.
- If the student is unable to perform the task independently, use graduated guidance.
- Be sure to fade your prompts to allow the student to complete as much of the task independently as possible.
- Increase the number of shapes on each picture and the number of pages in the book as your student is able to perform the task independently.
- Use pictures of interest to your student to help make it a fun activity!
Graduated guidance involves the use of prompts (usually physical) to teach a skill. This involves using just enough guidance to prevent an error and reducing the intensity of the prompt as the student becomes more independent. For example, starting out with a hand-over-hand prompt, then reducing to a light touch as the student begins to perform the skill independently.
