Summer is in full swing over here in my household! We have been enjoying ourselves by the pool and keeping extremely late hours! I have been neglecting my poor blog, but I have a plan to keep it updated this summer. I plan to blog at least once a week about a flippable (or foldable) for our math interactive notebooks that I plan to use in the upcoming year. These flippables will be available in my TpT store for a low price. But, they can easily be copied on a piece of paper.
The first one I will share comes from my Math Interactive Flippables for Common Core: Operations and Algebraic Thinking pack and aligns with CCSS 5.OA.2 which involves evaluating algebraic expressions without solving them. This flippable is super easy to make (Thanks to the awesome template from my friend, 4mulafun!)and allows for some note taking and some practice of the skill.
The students cut out and glue the flippable using the directions written on the actual foldable. (Again, 4mulafun rocks for adding this in to each of her templates!)
This is a 6 flap foldable and each flap contains an algebraic expression in numerical form or as a word phrase (3 of each). These students lift the flap and write the word phrase of the numerical form and vice versa. In the inside area, you can even have the kids make a list of key words to help them when they are practicing the skill. So this handy flippable gives you note taking and some practice problems. I really wanted to incorporate more actual practice problems into my math notebooks this year in addition to the note-taking.
Again, these flippable templates and 8 others for the OA standards (and many more sets in the future) are available here. However, this flippable could easily be made by the students with a piece of construction paper or copy paper.
