What educators are saying

My students loved using this. They were engaged and had no trouble getting started. It didn't take much prep time either.


Do you like using interactive fold-its and graphic organizers in your classroom?

This file contains over 60 fold-its for students to record their thinking about any text. The fold-its cover all Informational and Literature Standards for 2nd-5th grade, as well as a couple Language standards!

These can be used whole group, small group, or independently! You can use them anytime students are working with a text. I have included 2nd-5th grade concepts so you can reach the students at the exact level that they may need, by remediating or enriching!

The great thing about a lot of these fold-its, is that you can use them over again with a different text!
