Halloween Flip Book for Adjectives

Here's an oldie-but-goody that I pulled from my Boardmaker files:  a Halloween Flip Book  for working on adjectives.


It's a fun little book with a stack of adjective cards on the left, and Halloween vocabulary on the right that you flip through to make plausible and silly combinations.



I like to have the kids turn to the first page and say, "I see a scary haunted house," and then have them flip over the next vocabulary card to see if the next item is also scary.  For example, the second card might be a picture of candy, so I ask them, "Is candy scary?  No!"  Sometimes we continue flipping through the whole vocabulary stack and sometimes we just find one more thing to match the adjective, depending on the child.


Sometimes when we turn over an adjective and an object that do not match, such as a yummy moon, I will ask the child to tell me a better word to describe the moon.

There are all sorts of ways to use this fun little flip book.  Would you like a copy? If so, you can download it here.  Instructions are included, and it goes together quickly so you could use it today!  Helpful hint:  print it on card stock or photo paper for better print quality and durability.

Here's a sample of my vocabulary cards:



Have fun and please let me know what you think.  Your feedback is always appreciated!
