Tried It Tuesday: Math Foldables - Ideas By Jivey: For the Classroom

Tried It Tuesday: Math Foldables

It's that time again! Linking up with my sweetest friend, Holly, for another edition of Tried It Tuesday! I can't wait to see her kiddos' fables tomorrow for Workshop Wednesday!!
(Tomorrow's Workshop Wednesday will be sharing how you incorporate figurative language into Writing Workshop!)

I wanted to share how I've been using foldables and interactive activities in Math. It was my goal for this school year to make my math mini-lessons more interactive, and foldables are an awesome way to do that! (No kid wants to just sit and do a boring worksheet...) I have tried units from a few sellers, but the one I have found to be most like my teaching style is Blair Turner. We are currently using her Tenths and Hundredths Activities.
I love the way she has these activities set up- they are common-core aligned, aren't too overwhelming, and are perfect to use while teaching a mini-lesson! I am using these during my decimals unit to show how fractions and decimals are related- I adapted her activities to include writing the problems as fractions and decimals.  

If you are looking for math interactive activities, I would definitely suggest you try Blair Turner's! :o)

Hope to see you all tomorrow for Workshop Wednesday!! :o)


  1. Thanks for the recommendation Jivey. I have a math interactive notebook that I purchased but is not fitting into my program so well so I have just been making my own as I go along - I am off to check out these ones.

  2. I am so glad I saw this today - we will be working on decimals in a few weeks, and this will be perfect!

  3. I have purchased so many interactive notebooks and I just haven't had time to sit down and see what they all have to offer. It IS on my list of stuff to do though. I need to tackle this beast!

  4. Thanks for the recommendation. I have Nicole Shelby's Reading and Language interactive notebooks and LOVE them, but I have been needing something for math.

  5. I love interactive notebooks and foldables! I've been looking at Blair's sets of foldables for a while and really need to buy them!

  6. I'm like Alison, I have lots of resources, but little time! I wish I would've focused on one interactive notebook this year and did it well, instead of several notebooks and not using each one enough! These math activities look great!

  7. When I teach math again (notice I said "when" and not "if"), I would love to do more with interactive notebooks. Yours look great!! :)

  8. Wow, thank you so much for the shout out!! I loved seeing how you are using the activities! Awesome! Thanks again!
