G/H Letter Activity

I had a creative wind in me today, and after a quick sketch on some scrap paper I then made this G/H flip thing. I'm not sure what to call it, actually (this doesn't qualify as a "lapbook", does it?).

Well whatever it is, here it is:

I want to make them with my second/third grade after school class either next week or the following week. At first I was just going to use blank paper, but with that many kids there was no way I could help them all get set up if they didn't pay attention (or aren't able to hear/see/understand) when I show how to set it up.

So on a blank sheet of paper I drew the horizontal solid and dotted lines, and then wrote each word once in each box. I photocopied that sheet, so this way the kids have something to go from, but can still add a lot on their own. They can trace each word and then write it below, draw all of the pictures, and write all of the big letters across the top column on both sides. That should keep them busy, I hope.

We'll see how it goes when I show it to the class. I think it's a neat little thing if I do say so myself, but I'm not sure if the kids will be motivated to make one or not.
