How are you? Mini Book!

Gumby has made this great video of how to make an 8 page book out of one piece of paper!

And being such a nice person she’s also done a ready made print out for you to try with the How are you? lesson.


Thanks Gumby!

What do you think?

UPDATE: Doing them for all themes will take quite a while, so if you have any requests for specific themes you’d like quickly then please write them in the comments!

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. When I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. Now I help teachers just like you teach amazing lessons and double your incomes!

    Gumby, you are genius!! Kids must love making and coloring the books! They will proudly show the books to their parents. Great!!

    Gumby, that is absolutely fantastic. I wish I’d known about this earlier. What an amazing, brilliant way to print.

    Very well done!!

    it’s a really clever way of teaching, pupils will learn the target subject indirectly. Thanks for sharing:)

    This idea is so brilliant! It is portable, compact, the kids love colouring plus they can use it to help practice at home! I’m sure the parents will love it too, thank you so much.
    Richard would you be able to create these for the other themes? That would be fantastic and great for the start of the new year. Something new for the kids too!

    What a great idea! one can really use it with any theme. Last year I found in the web (I believe on British council web site) a free downloadable minibook related to the song “Itsy bitsy spider”, I used it and the kids loved it. So I’m definitely using it this year with other themes! Thanks for sharing!

    Great idea and a wonderful way to make the kids collect the mini cards. If I hand them out as a A4 sheet they someday are going into the garbage, and if I had them out as a book some kids cut the cards so that they are all around their bags.
    It’s actually easy to make for the other seems, just copy a mini card sheet cut it out put it in order and copy (or even scan) them

    Thank you gumby!

    My kids loved the minibook, first time they asked to take something home to show parents!
    Thanks Richard et al, Allan

    Wow, it was working. I let my kids make the mini book. They had fun of folding and cutting it. They were very proud that they had their own mini book. And they asked me again to make another one.
    Thank you so much. I’ve got the idea from this website.
    Please share more ideas.
    Thanks once again
