Language Arts Tuesday: More Foldables!!
Language Arts is by far one of my favorite subjects to teach. I have always been a reader and love to pass on that love to my students. I could definitely use a lot of my favorite foldables in many different ways: sequencing, cause and effect, author's purpose, etc., etc. The list could go on and on! However, the other side of Language Arts is also Writing and Grammar. I think a lot of time these areas might get over looked. If I was ever going to teach college, I'd teach How to Teach Writing 101 :)
Anyways, when I taught third grade, a lot of my students needed a review of their basic components of writing. So, I created this foldable:
Next, fold them so that your layers make the flaps. This is a bit harder so don't actually crease the paper until you are sure tha tyou have them the way that you want.
I usually make sure to use multiple colors when modeling to the kids so they can see the difference. My students had a mix of whatever colors they grabbed from a stack of construction paper. I hope my directions were clear. But if anyone is interested in a photo tutorial, just let me know!
Have a blessed day,
