New Unusual Minibooks Master Template

Here is a mix of new and unusual minibooks.

I use my Master Template when I create new lapbooks or just need a new minibook for a notebook and minibook combination page. I print out a stash of minibooks to save time.  Sometimes my children want to choose their own minibooks, so I print out and paste the minibooks on a file folder or note paper.  Below are my latest examples:

Minibooks Featured above:

Rolled Inside Page Minibook

  • Cut the vertical slit in the 1 page and roll the inside page horizontally to insert through the slit.
  • Open the page out flat and fold closed around the outer page
  • This book provides up to 6 pages to write on

Arrow Flap Shutter Fold

  • A wonderful minibook for definitions, terminology and vocabulary
  • We use this for our LA study on prefixes and suffixes – prefix on arrow, prefix’s meaning on shutter fold and examples of words with that prefix inside the minibook.
  • Can be used for small diagrams, or science and  maths formulas

A neat narrow Pocket with Strips

  • Fits in several long strips
  • Great for lists and short notes

The common Hexagonal Petal Minibook

  • with 6 flaps/ petal pages for more space to write in your notes

The small Hexagonal Match Book

  • Folds like a matchbook
  • Neat and simple style

The newest unusual minibook is the bottom right corner – Triarama Minibook

  • A 3D fold with the background corner upright and the information corner folds over the bottom corner
  • It lies flat as seen here or folded in a triangle
  • Great for Geography or Science where a diagram forms the background and notes in front
  • My example here is for Maths literacy
  • Excellent for 2nd language with picture behind and vocabulary on the front corner.

Hidden behind the Triarama is the pink Collapsed Triangle Fold

  • Lovely large square for writing and illustrations
  • Folds to a neat triangle
  • Can be used vertically or horizontally

A Venn Diagram Flap Minibook

  • Good for comparisons
  • Place pictures on the front covers and write information or lists under the flaps

One-Page 10 Page Minibook

  • A whole page with a simple cut folds to form a 10 page booklet.
  • Valuable minibook for narrations or summaries

Arrow 4 Page Minibook

  • An unusual tabbed minibook with plenty of space for notes and diagrams

A stylish Larger Pull Tab Minibook

  • Really good-sized tab pull with plenty of space for illustrations, notes or summary

Quilt Square Folds in Half

  • An easy quilt square with notes under each corner
  • The quilt square folds in half vertically or horizontally with a bordered front for pictures and title

Minibooks featured Above:

A wonderful new Fact Wheel

  • Write the questions on the outer edge of the big circle and the child writes the answers in the open segment with the same number as the question.
  • As the child turns the wheel the answer appears in the space
  • Great for revision!

An Envelope with Cards

  • Neat envelope and good-sized cards for information of pictures
  • We used stickers to close our envelope and my girls love to use sealing wax for an olden days envelope

Pop-up Card

  • An interesting card with space for 2 pop ups, but you could edit this for 1 picture instead
  • We use this often in Geography to depict rivers, rapids, tidal ocean zone etc.
  • Great for gift cards

A row of Pull Tab Minibooks

  • 3 minibooks in a row
  • Good for definitions, vocabulary and simple notes

I compiled a master template in MS Word version so that you can download and then use the images to make your own minibooks.

I will post some MS Word tutorials soon so that you can learn how to simply take the template, choose a minibook and add your own text and images.

PS: I popped a few extra little minibooks in the spaces around the larger minibooks featured here – Enjoy!
