Once you begin using interactive student notebooks in your classroom, you will eventually want to start making your own foldables. Now, a lot of teachers simply show students how to fold the paper and then the students write everything, even tab titles, and there is nothing wrong with that. However, I never felt like I had enough time in class for students to write down every single detail of their notes themselves…
In order to make it easier for me, I began developing my own foldables that I could type into and edit as I pleased, When I was ready to teach that lesson, I would print the foldables double-sided, and only have students fill in the crucial information and examples.
In the video tutorial below, I share my process for developing foldables in Microsoft Word. If you aren’t ready for that just yet, check out my 6 free foldables, which are also completely editable!
Do you have your own way of developing or creating foldables for your interactive student notebooks? Please share!
