What is included?

Choose from a range of templates, depending on the needs of your students. You can create either an 8 page or a 16 page flipbook, and you can choose from freestyle sheets, labelling sheets, or gapfill sheets. All templates are available in British and American English and in colour or black and white. Read on for more details.

**This resource is also included in The Smartest Giant in Town Activity Pack**

Comprehensive Activity Suggestions provide lots of ideas for activities to do before and after, and also give you ideas for interactive ways to conduct the activities for effective language practice.

What will my students learn?

Pages 1-4: tie, shoes, shirt, sunglasses, cap, vest, trousers/pants, sock

Pages 5-8: woolly hat, belt, pants/underpants, crown, dress, sandals

Pages 9-12: giraffe, T-shirt, shorts, trainers/sneakers, goat, jacket, fox, mouse

Pages 13-16: dog, jumper/sweater, pyjamas/pajamas, skirt, boots, rabbit

There are 4 pages per sheet and 4 sheets in total. Choose to print only the first 2 sheets to create a shorter book that focuses mainly on clothes vocabulary in the story. Print all 4 sheets to include the story animals and extended clothes vocabulary. There are also sections that allow kids to get creative and draw to make each book unique. Print double sided for best results.

This resource includes the following templates in both black and white and colour:
  • Flipbook covers – Back covers include text of the vocabulary contained in the book so that kids can use to check spelling in labelling or writing tasks. They come in American English or British English and there are two versions of each depending on whether you print all 4 pages (16 page flipbook containing animals) or 2 pages (8 page flipbook focussing on story clothes vocabulary).
  • Freestyle sheets – Images with no designated writing spaces. These can be used flexibly to include focus on a range of structures and other vocabulary, e.g., “He’s wearing a tie”; “He isn’t wearing a sock”; “It’s a shirt”; “They’re shoes”; “He looks grumpy” etc. These may also be more suitable for non-literate learners.
  • Labelling sheets – These indicate specific clothing items or animals for the children to write the names of.
  • Gapfill sheets – These support learning with the initial and final letter of each word included. They can consult the back cover if you wish you to offer further support. Gapfill sheets also come in both American and British English versions.
