Great way to introduce a new chapter and get students excited about the topic. Could also use it to get kids excited about a new guided reading book!

Parts of Speech Mini-Book (foldable, printable, fun-filled resource!) from The Classroom Sparrow on - (7 pages) - This mini-book is a great addition to any English Language Arts classroom, and suitable for a variety of levels. Students no longer have an excuse for misplacing their notes.

Hands-On Pronoun Agreement activity (and a lot of other ideas for hands-on review). Love it!

BLIND DATE WITH A BOOK: Love this idea to teach kids giving a book a chance. "Blind Date with a Book" Activity for independent reading. Wrap up books and decorate with key words that relate to each. Students pick a book, unwrap it, record it and read for 30 pages. Good date=keep it, finish it, review it. Bad date=return it, and write about why it wasn't the book for you. Great "get to know yourself as a reader" activity! I am SO doing this!

Point of view foldable

"This is one of my FAVORITE classroom management tools!! It can be soooo time consuming to answer the questions...Can we use markers?, Do we turn this in?, Is this a talking activity? I love using these assignment choice signs to answer those questions without me doing the work. Once I give directions for an activity, I quickly place checks and X's by the cards and my students know exactly where to look for the answer."


Many different examples of foldables. Great ideas.
