Well, my Spring Break officially ended today. (Insert sad face) Getting up, heading out the door, and leaving my sweet baby girl was super hard. Although I had missed my school kiddos, I really enjoyed being home and playing with my best girl. Oh, well 36 school days left.....I guess we can make it. =)
Today during math we made foldables to organize the different units for length (both customary and metric). Here are some examples of our work and a short how-to on making the foldables:
Step 1: Get your paper. We used copy paper for ours, but construction paper will work.
Step 2: Fold paper hamburger style.
Step 3: Fold the top flap back toward the fold.
Step 4: Flip the entire foldable over and fold the (new) top flap back toward the fold.
Step 5: Turn horizontal with the folds at the bottom. Write the topic along the fold. Write the subtopics along the flap (#'s 1-4). Cut between each subtopic.
Step 6: Write the details or information for each subtopic beneath each flap.
These can be used for any subject area, and I hope you can use them in your classroom. If you have any questions, please let me know! I hope I was clear in my instructions. =)
Have a great Tuesday everyone!
