One sheet of regular photocopy paper makes a single Flip, and one sheet of index or cover stock paper makes the cover. This activity incorporates listening, observing, decision-making, and kinesthetic responses. The instructor and/or a student arranges the tabs of their Sequencing and Pattern Flip to make a pattern. Students in the group/station try to make their Flips look the same. Begin with only two movable sections of tabs by paper-clipping the last (right) section closed. Advance to all three sections as students progress. Make 3-6 of each Sequencing and Pattern Flip for use in Stations, or make enough to be used by pairs of students as a classroom activity. Once assembled, Sequencing and Pattern Flips can be used throughout the school term for instruction, review, and assessment; and they usually last for several years.
