This "Survival Guide" is an absolute staple in my classroom! I had so many other teachers in my school asking for copies of it so I decided to share with you all as well!
The difference between this collection of foldables and the others is that these are EDITABLE! I made the foldable based off of my instruction and the our state's standards but you can edit it as you please. I included some photos of one of my students "Survival Guide" for you to see the end result.
Why I created it:
My students used to always come to me asking "I forget how to...". Re-teaching every day took away a lot of valuable instruction time! Now the students don't need to ask, instead they grab their Survial Guides and figure it out on their own! This is especially great for those who are shy and/or too lazy to ask!
I have my students keep it in their classroom files so they have it every single day. The students love it and use it all year long. It is the FIRST thing they grab as they come into the classroom. (I allow them to use during some assessments also which encourages them to stay on top of it!) It is perfect for those students who have IEP's or 504's requiring more accommodations.
I created it in PPT and kept it editable so if you are somewhat familiar with PPT, you can change ANY foldable to suit your classroom and teaching style! It is a resource that the students will be able to keep all throughout middle school and even high school.
Included you will find foldables for the following topics:
Order of Operations
Comparing and Ordering Numbers
Properties of Numbers
Geometry Formulas (Area//Volume)
Distance btwn two points
Ratios & Proportions
Geometry (line, segment, point, ray)
Data Displays (Lines of Best Fit, Dot/Scatter/Box &Whisker Plot, Histogram, Two-Way Table)
Measures of Central Tendency (Mode,Median,Range,Mean)
System of Equations (Solving by: Substitution, Elimination, Graphing)
My suggestion is have the students bring in a MARBLE/composition book (notebook) to turn into their Survival Guides. They are cheap and the pages almost never fall out which is crucial!
**If there is anything missing from this guide, let me know and I will create a foldable for it!!!
I hope you enjoy it! Happy teaching! :)
