Foldables and Stamps Activity

by Sheila Zagula August 26, 2015 1 min read

STAMPede SetCreating foldables is one way to make reinforcing the SGM icons an enjoyable experience. Using a flipbook and our Icon STAMPede Stamp Activity Set is a versatile way to engage students. There are a variety of flip book ideas online which may be adapted to this activity and the stamps make it easy for students themselves to create their own booklets during centers.

The Basic Flip Book/STAMPede activity…
  1. Decide which icons you would like students to work on… this will vary by what you want to reinforce with your students.
  2. Place as many sheets of paper as needed, one on top of the other.

3. Pull each piece of paper down about ¾ of an inch to one inch from the other.

4. Fold the pile and then staple the booklet at the top.

5. Add the icons to the bottom of each page.

Below are completed samples.
