Happy Saturday, friends!! I will be off to take a little nap in a few minutes because I was up EARLY to teach language arts staff development this morning to some awesome teachers from all over my county. We’ll meet three more Saturdays over the next three months, too. This is the best staff development to teach because these people WANT to be there! They are NOT getting paid to come and listen to us on a Saturday morning! WOW!!
I want to link up quickly though with my BBB Joanne to share another foldable we did this week! (Check this post if you missed the first one I shared.) Foldables are a TOTAL motivator because the kids get to cut and glue (and DRAW on this one! “What?? We aren’t writing?? YIPPEE!!!” they all say…) – sometimes I get a little frustrated because it does take a little longer, especially at the beginning, but it’s so worth it because the kids are ENGAGED through the whole lesson.
We have been working on water cycle, so we made a foldable that includes a picture of the water cycle, and each flap covers the part that the word is representing.
