It's time for another mini-book! I was reading Erzsi Culshaw's blog recently and it reminded me of hexagon books. As I've mentioned recently, my Year 5 Spaniards are learning how to tell the time in Spanish at the moment. I usually finish this unit with a lift-the-flap book, but the cutting and folding always seems to go wrong (not mine, I hasten to add). So I thought I'd give the hexagons a try to see if the children find the making any easier.
The idea is that you unfold one hexagon at a time. On the top of each hexagon I have drawn a clock. When you lift up the hexagon, the time in Spanish is written underneath. The clock pictured below says 4 o'clock. When I turn it over you can see "Son las cuatro" written underneath.
Because of the six "petals" this mini-book would be useful for verb forms. Here is the template if you'd like to have a go yourself:
