      This website shares one of the activities that was done by an ESL teacher and it's called Foldables Idea she used this one with compound words, blends, onset and rimes, and contractions. The kids love the ideas! and it suits their interest of learning. She start out with a plain sheet of paper and do a gate fold. Then she cut strips on each panel then wrote the words that suits her lesson plan
