Although I am fortunate to have two walls of windows to create a bright and airy classroom, I am limited will available wall space. I usually staple a set of A4 paper pockets dedicated to each PYP element for students to access at anytime for their learning.
So I took what I have in A4 poster form and created a student flip booklet. Students can keep a booklet throughout the day and the year wherever they work, be it at their desk, on the floor, outside, on a trip or at home. It also can be used to involve students in planning their own inquiries, as a reference while working through an inquiry and for formative and summative assessment of the essential elements during or after their inquiry.
It is also useful for teachers new to the PYP. It could also be a great little tool for families at home to connect to Transdisciplinary Themes, Concepts or strengthening the connection between home and school through Skills, Attitudes and Action.
Tip: When printing, choose back-to-back landscape or 2-sided short edge binding.
