Laura Candler at Corkboard Connections is having a Fantastic Link Up....a Fantastical Foldable Link Up! Since I use foldables so much in my class, I thought I would create a post dedicated to some of them that I have used in the past. I LOVE foldables. They are so useful and handy. The kids love folding the paper, it keeps them engaged in the learning, and, best part of all, NO COPIES ARE NECESSARY!! Paper and a pencil are the only requirements (though scissors and a stapler *do* come in handy sometimes). They lend themselves well to any content area and the same fold can be used without the kids saying "We did this before". What could be more fabulous than that? So here are a few foldables that I have used in my class with great success. This is a simple one to create. The students folded a piece of paper in half. They then cut the TOP sheet into however many sections we needed. You can see from the pictures below that one is cut into fifths and one into fourths. On the outside, you write one piece of information, on the inside is usually the explanation. On this foldable, the students were learning about the types of sentences. They wrote the definition of that sentence and then an example on the inside. This one was for fact and opinion. The students wrote evidence WHY it was a fact or opinion on the inside. For this foldable, the students folded the paper in half, then when opened, brought the sides in to form what looked like doors. I use this type of foldable A LOT! It is great for comparing things or showing how certain things are related in some way. Misused verbs Special Cells This foldable was a completely different fold, with no scissors necessary. When the students put the flap down, it had 4 triangles coming into the center of a square. We used this one to show how two different myths had the basic qualities and traits that all myths share. So there you have it. Just a few different foldable ideas. I have many more that I use in class (just no pictures for some reason!) They really can be used in all different areas of the curriculum...even though most of my examples are from Language Arts. ;) How do you use foldables in your class?
YAY for Sundays! The sun is shining (and hopefully melts some of the snow that was DUMPED on us this week), the kids are watching a movie, the coffee is good, and I've got a fun little craft planned for them this afternoon. Best of all ... no planning for tomorrow - LOVE March Break!!! We're still in our 3D Geometry / Measurement unit. We've been studying the different 3D shapes and their attributes, and finding their volume and surface area. In our last unit, 2D Measurement, I had been making shapes with the forumlas for area on them and posting them on the blackboard. I decided to keep them up during this unit (to help them with surface area), and have been adding the 3D shapes they need to know the volume of. These sit at the top of one of my blackboards (yes, I still have blackboards ... well, one blackboard - the others have all been covered because what I need more than anything else in my classroom is more wall space.) So, these are our foldables from this week - we made a triangular prism and a tetrahedron for our journals. We wrote some of the attributes for each shape inside the nets (# of faces, # of edges, # of vertices, sketch, and surface area and volume). As we did last week, we only glued one of the faces down so the net could still be folded into its 3D shape. We also have an anchor chart we have been adding to as we study a new shape. The students have also copied this chart into their math notes and are adding to it as we update our anchor chart. Well, that's about it for today! I'd love to hear if you're using math journals in your classroom, and what you include in your journals. This is the first year I've done these interactive journals, and I'd love some more ideas / advice ... Happy, Happy Sunday! Looking forward to a GREAT day!

Interactive Math Journal Interactive Math Journal 2 Building Better Math Responses Math Concept Posters InLinkz.com
Since posting about my rudimentary math journals the first time- I've had quite a few visitors to this little blog. It has helped me to be more reflective about my adventure into math journaling this year and start planning for next year! Here are few pictures of what is included in our journals: We incorporate our math vocabulary We store our multiplication table and our flash cards We make foldables to enhance our understanding We paste our wordle creations We copy our anchor charts We create graphic organizers We solve problems! Basically, we do all of our concept work in these journals. It has been so much fun diving into math journaling. In the years past I have stuck to the Everyday Math curriculum and haven't deviated from it. This year I have seen a big difference in my students. First of all, their understanding of math vocabulary is amazing! Even with third graders we usually struggle with reading and understanding the connection between certain math words. I am so proud of how my group this year has taken responsibility for the vocabulary themselves. When there is a word they don't understand- they are so ready to stop and figure it out instead of just attempting a problem (like I usually saw). I also see that their number sense has improved. I'll never forget my first year of teaching third grade- I went through the whole unit on fractions and then we looked at fractions on the number line in our classroom- and I had a student ask me if fractions were like real numbers? As in, fractions belong in the same group as the numbers I have seen all year on the number line? I was shocked. This year I am continually amazed at their ability to work through new concepts on their own. We were working on fractions on a number line and I had my trusty lesson ready to go- when I showed them the number line and asked if they could find any fractions on it, they had a million! There went my lesson-but I had them journal about it instead! Next year I will teach 2nd grade and I want to start my littles on math journaling right away. I can only imagine the quality of their journals when I loop with them to third grade! I am sure that they will rise to the occasion but I keep wondering about what exactly second graders are capable of in the beginning of the school year. So, all my first and second grade teachers, what can I expect from them? How do you use journals?
I just died a little and went to teacher heaven. The website it links to is AH-MAH-ZING!

In less than a week the summer holidays will be over and I'll be back into the whirlwind of teaching once again! I've been trying to get my brain back into "school mode" and I've been in and out of school sorting out my classroom and finding sources of inspiration. I have found some great teaching ideas over on Pinterest. If you haven't explored Pinterest, I urge you to now. Here are my Pinterest pin-boards. The best ideas are the simplest, you can pick up these little pots for very little cost. There's always the potential for chaos during a maths activity if everyone in the class needs to be rolling dice, so this is the perfect solution! This is one of my favourite ideas! In year 3 one of the science topic looks at what plants need to be healthy and this is the perfect and really easy way to illustrate to children exactly what is happening when a plant grows. One of the most interesting stages of a seed germinating is that first moment when the seed sprouts roots and this is ordinarily completely hidden from view. I'm definitely going to try this with my class this year! I also came across a fabulous idea of growing seeds inside lightbulbs that you hang from the window frames in the classroom. What a brilliant idea! My sister The Style PA suggested it could be adapted by inserting Kings and Queens. But this idea could be used in many ways. With a variety of book characters inserted, it would be a powerful way of children developing their skills of character description and would be an exciting way of starting a literacy lesson on descriptive language. Another brilliant and cost-effective storage solution. A great way of teaching children about erosion. Another recycling idea - using Starbucks plastic cups as paint pots. I think I may have to steal this for my classroom. I currently have words around my clock, but this is a simpler and and more visual aid for telling the time. Every child works at different speeds and there are inevitably going to be a few children that finish tasks early. This is a great way of having a quick and easy bank of extension tasks that can easily be adapted and added to depending on the context. This is a lovely idea for an early morning activity while children are filtering into school, a time filler activity, or as part of phonics sessions. (for sources follow this link)
