Fantastic Foldables

You know how I love Foldables, right?

Laura Candler has created a linky party just for cool is that?

As she so eloquently said on her blog, Corkboard Connections:
"Not only are foldables a terrific way to actively engage students, they're also great because kids can store them and refer to them later when studying for a test or completing an assignment. I can't wait to see all the super ideas that will be shared here!"

When we started the Poetry and Figurative Language lapbooks this week, my students {and my best teaching buddy's students} quickly flipped back in their reading notebooks to the foldable we had created in the fall on poetry.  How stinkin' cool is that?

Here's the lapbook full of foldables that we are creating this week:

I modified it for my class because that was a lot of printing.  So, at the end of the file, there is a page with just the figurative language terms and another page for the poetry terms.  My students will be creating a flip book with a sentence strip to add those.  We will make those tomorrow, so I'll show you a picture soon!

Link up with Laura...let's face it, she's an amazing teacher guru.  I kinda have one of those teacher-crushes on her, too {Amber}.  You know, like a bro-mance, only about a teach-mance?

Naw, that just sounds weird. up!

Also-stay tuned tomorrow for my fabulous 200+ follower giveaway!  It's gonna be good :)  I'm having a giveaway with a little help from my friends.
