Books Teachers Love {May}

I absolutely love this time of the month! I am teaming up with some of my fabulous blogger friends to give you some freebies that go along with the books we chose to tell you about for the month and you get a chance to win 4 of the books in our Books Teachers Love giveaway! Let's get started!
This month I chose to use the story Monarch Butterfly with my class. I also created a butterfly flipbook that you will want to check out and perhaps, use with your class too!

I created a flipbook that goes along with this story, but you can use it for any butterfly story or text that you want! 
The kids start by folding the flipbooks, cutting the flaps, and decorating the cover. I love all of the fine-motor skills that they get to work on!
Then comes the writing. This flipbook is in the KWL format. The kids write their "What I Know" and "What I Want to Know" before we read the story together. You can even have this be a morning job!
After the kids write their KWL pieces, they get to draw/color a picture on the other side of the flap. Easy and fun as that!
