Folktale Update and Geometry Lapbook (Giveaway)



Man am I tired!  So this will be short and sweet!

First off, someone commented on my Folktale Booklet Freebie on TPT.  I made that thing ages ago it seems like! Well they said it would be awesome if there were posters to go along with each folktale.  Genius! So I whipped them up. So be sure to redownload the mini-unit!

Next up, you know how I love foldables and lapbooks! Well, our math journals are almost full so I didn't feel like we would have enough room to put all of our geometry foldables I wanted to make. SO MUCH VOCAB! So, I made a lapbook! We are starting it tomorrow and my kids are so excited about it!




There are Seven Foldables in all, plus a cover and a rubric.  There are color and black and white versions!  
Here are the foldables:
1. Real Life Examples Accordion Fold
2. Solid Figures Flip Book 
3. Quadrilateral 2-Flap Brochure
4. Angles Pyramid Fold
5. Triangles 6-Square Brochure
6. Polygons Pocket with Cards
7. Lines and Segments Flipbook 

Even if you don't want to make a lapbook, there are great to go in the math journals!


It's $3.00 at my TPT Store and TN Shop!

I will give it to two people! Just comment below and tell me about your experience with foldables and I'll choose two people Friday! 

Have a fabulous tomorrow! :)

  2. Hi Amber! The geometry foldable unit looks fabulous! I love using foldables in my classroom also. My kids get excited at the mention of a foldable activity. I use foldables in all subject areas. My favorite that we have done so far was a foldable briefcase we made during our study of the American Revolution. This became their study guide for the test.

  5. I've honestly NEVER used a lapbook before and I've taught 3rd grade for 6 years now. For the past two years I've taught ELD and I'm constantly looking for new ideas for them to gain great ideas for learning vocabulary & learn the material. I think this would be awesome for my kids!! I love your ideas!! Thanks so much for sharing! It's given me some fabulous ideas :)

  11. Well, I'm not sure where to start. Foldables are my life. I LOVE them and use them in every subject. Its such a simple way to organize information. When they need it they can just take it out of their folder instead of flipping through their journals. When they are done they can take them home to use there too! :)

  12. I feel like this year, I've been collecting/organizing ideas I've found from blogging. Next year, they will be implemented! Our geometry unit is last though, so this would be fun for my kids to try!

  13. I work in an area with a VERY large ELL population, and foldables are a great way to help them organize and develop their vocabulary in all areas. They're lots of fun to make too ;)

  14. I love the idea of lap booking but have only done one because I am new to third grade this year. Your geometry one looks great.

    Now I'm going to head over to your store to see what else you have!

  18. I went to several Dinah Zike presentations years ago, bought all her books and became the queen of foldables at our school. (In fact, I kept seeing people talk about lapbooks on their blogs and thought I was out of the loop until I found out I was using them...just calling them by a different name!)

    What I love is that the students love making them, and will actually work carefully on them, which is not always the case with other work they do!
