My Nonsense Word Mini Book - Template

PDF | 1 page|Grades: 3 - 4

Celebrate Roald Dahl Day by creating a nonsense word mini book with this handy template.

Use this teaching resource in the classroom to have fun with nonsense words and to celebrate Roald Dahl Day. The simple illustrations on each page may encourage your students to consider soft vowel letters sounds and hard consonant sounds.

The mini-book has a front cover, six pages and a back cover. You may like to enlarge the template to A3 size to create larger paper books.

Use this helpful video as a guide to making mini books…


To make the mini-books:

  1. Print and photocopy a template for each student.
  2. Ensure you print and photocopy the template at it’s “actual” size and do not reduce or enlarge it. This will ensure the page edges line up without trimming.
  3. Students write or draw on each numbered page of the mini-book template.
  4. Fold all of the lines on the page, including all of the horizontal lines and all of the vertical lines.
  5. Open the paper back out and fold in half along the middle vertical line.
  6. Cut the dotted line between pages 2, 3, 6 and 7.
  7. Fold the worksheet in half.
  8. Push pages together so that all the pages are on the outside. The cut section will open out in a diamond shape before folding in on itself to form the pages.
  9. Sort the pages, so that the blank title page is at the front and the Teach Starter logo is at the back, with the page numbers in order from 1 to 6, creating a little mini book.
