Modern Teaching Mondays: Fantastic Foldables Link Up
Do you use foldables in your classroom? I am joining Laura Candler's Linky Party to share one of my Fantastic Foldables. This is a flip book highlighting fractional parts. It is a simple way to discuss parts of a whole. I love, love teaching fractions. Mostly because you can bring in food to show some examples (as long as you follow the nutritional laws--right?!?!) No, kidding aside, it can be so 'hands-on' and you know how I feel about making it fun. I love fractions so much I even created a pinterest board with real-world images of examples of fractions. Check out the board HERE. And I even made a free list of Top 25 items to show examples of fractions which you can get HERE. So, foldables...love them! Here is how I made this one...it's a pretty standard flip book:
* Make a standard flip book but then cut the first layer in fourths, the next layer in thirds, the next layer in halves, and the last layer leave whole.
* When you flip it up, students write examples of the fraction (on the inside)
That's it. Very simple and easy.
Join the party! Just link up at Laura's Blog.
Have a wonderful week!
