Do the preparation task first. Then watch the video and do the activities.
MELISA: What's the matter?
EMILY: Pff, I can't find the page!
MELISA: Hmm. Do you know what we could do?
EMILY: No. What?
MELISA: We could make a bookmark! What do you think?
EMILY: That's a great idea!
Melisa, what do we need?
MELISA: We need some coloured paper, scissors and some felt-tip pens.
OK, so the first thing to do is to fold one corner to make a triangle.
Perfect! Then cut off the extra paper.
EMILY: So now we've got a square!
MELISA: That's right! And now, the folding stage.
First turn it around so it's like a diamond shape. Now bring the bottom corner up and fold it to make a triangle. Then, take the right-hand corner, bring it up and fold. Repeat on the other side.
Open it back into a triangle and bring the top corner down and fold. Then bring the flap over and fold it under. Repeat on the other side.
EMILY: Woah! Is it finished?
MELISA: Yes, you made it!
EMILY: Mmm … I think it's missing something!
MELISA: Really? What?
EMILY: Much better!
MELISA: Wow, it's scary!
EMILY: The bats for the horror stories book …
MELISA: The alien for the science-fiction book … And the shark?
EMILY: For the pirates book!
MELISA: We hope you have fun making your own bookmarks!
MELISA AND EMILY: Bye!
MELISA: Remember! To make a bookmark:
- make a paper square
- fold the square
- decorate it.
That's it! Now you can use your bookmark.
