Are you tired of hearing the words: “I can’t remember what we did yesterday? I left it at home. I was gone yesterday, what did I miss?“ Well, those days are gone!

**Included in this download are five different versions of metacognition foldables to use in your interactive notebook. The metacognition foldables can be used at any grade level and are also differentiated to meet the needs of all learners in your classroom. Simply print the metacognition foldable you want, give to student and allow him or her to glue, staple or tape into their interactive notebook and fill out. As we all know, good readers think about their thinking (metacognition) while they are reading. These foldables are a perfect way to help students track down what they are learning.
