A Big Yipppeeeeee and a "I Love Foldables" Linky Party!

Whooppeeee!  I just found out that I won first place in Jessica Stanford's "Just Because Giveaway"!  I never win anything.  She donated $10 to my next project at Donor's Choose.  I am thrilled.  Thanks so much, Jessica!  If you haven't checked out Jessica's blog, Mrs. Stanford's Class, head on over.  She always has some great ideas and such a positive attitude!

Besides winning giveaways, one of my other favorite things is a good foldable.  Do you love foldables as much as I do?  They are little books of magic and wonder to my students.  I love watching them get excited as they begin to fold, layer, etc...until they have their very own little book. 

Well, we are not the only foldable lovers out there.  Laura Candler over at Corkboard Connections had a Fantastic Foldable Freebies Linky Party awhile back.  Notice the emphasis on Freebies!  Yeah! She has a great list of foldable resources just for you.

Here are a couple of my own Fantastic Foldable Freebies!

This year, I used this Parts of Speech flip book as an end of the year review.  But, next year I will use it as a mini-word wall for my students.  They will be able to add to their flip book all year long.

I put my Short A Flip Books in my emergency substitute bin.  They were already folded, stapled, and ready to go.  Since the book was filled with fun review activities for short A, it was the best report I have received from a substitute in a long time.  She mentioned that the students were "very on task",  and "focused."  Music to my ears!

I also have one other foldable for purchase.  This is my Tpt store's "best seller"!


I hope you have a great Memorial Day, and have a chance to find some great foldable resources for your classroom!

    1. Thanks Lisa. I taught the "lovables" this year. So, I was creating 1st grade materials all year long. I think this foldable would be great for reviewing the short a sound.
