I have been making foldables for many years after I found Dinah Zike’s books for sale online. I own several of them and was so excited to see them used in textbooks, too. Here are few of the basic ones I do every year, and one new one I tried that is really fun.
After seeing information on I Speak Math, I added the word “turn-around” to some of the phrases.
Order of Operations
Started making some pre-written instead of making the students write everything. I took some key words out.
And the coolest one of all, from the Fantastic Flexible Foldables, Integer Infinity Square by Carol DeFreese . There are some amazing ones at this website http://home.centurytel.net/cdefreese/foldables/. I took out some information…next time I will take out some more.
*****UPDATE 9-16-15 Looks like Carol DeFreese’s page is gone!!! I found a PDF of the foldable on my computer here: integers infinity foldable. Unfortunately, it has been a while since I last made it, so I hope you can figure it out from my pictures. Sorry! ALSO, I would edit the wording…not crazy about the whole war thing. I can’t remember if I put that in, or if it was on her foldable.
