Slat Books

During our Chinese New Year Study we learned that Chinese characters were written up and down and read right to left. To figure out why we made slat books. The slat books open like scrolls. The right hand side is "unrolled" first and read. It continues to be opened and read.

Chip's scroll is the noodle soup recipe he likes so much. Dill's and Sweet's broke before I got the chance to take a picture.
