Like many teachers, I often used graphic organizers to help students plan and organize their ideas for writing. Unfortunately, students are easily bored by regular organizers and many kids prefer skipping that step altogether, which often results in poorly organized or incomplete ideas. So when we started to use folding notes for literature skills, I decided that we would use folding graphic organizers for writing as well. The kids started calling them “foldanizers,” and this is how the “foldanizer” was born!
