Content, complete!

I mentioned last week that I wanted to challenge myself to create a book structure that contained more than the structure. Well, here it is!


The idea came to me as I was going through a box of language cue cards designed to teach young students to identify specific auditory sounds. The activity involved listening to a series of recorded sounds and matching the sound to the correct visual. Although they are not designed to be used as sequence cards, I couldn't help but put together my own story from some of them. Let me know if you get the meaning of the sequence of images.

Instead of using the actual materials as I typically do, I scanned the cards and also scanned the cover of the box. A concertina structure fit the sequence theme nicely. The label of the original box, scanned, got some new words and covered the new, smaller, box.

After spending a ridiculous amount of time fighting with my rusty box making skills, hating PVA, and not understanding how to easily re-size images digitally, I must say I'm pleased with the final book. So pleased, in fact, that I'm going to make another one next week.  Continuing on the education theme, the next one will be all about the concept of , 'First _____, then _____.' ; a concept often repeated verbally and visually to young students and many students who have developmental disabilities.  Check back in a week or so and see it here!
