For the past few weeks I have been using foldable graphic organizers with my students. They LOVE foldables! This main topic foldable can be found in my Foldable Graphic Organizers Pack. The students have worked hard on their folding and cutting skills and they are no longer producing foldables that do not close, or foldables that have been cut in half! These foldables allow students to show their thinking through writing and drawing, while providing a hands-on component. Most of our foldables are completed whole class with clipboards on the carpet. My students are almost ready to try them independently!
Here are a few examples of student foldables with an informational story about nocturnal animals.
