I started using Stick-n-Solve Foldables in my Math Interactive Notebooks last year and it worked great! There are a few things about these Stick-n-Solves that I really have enjoyed. First, my students no longer spend time copying down problems when we take notes. I always thought this was a waste of time. Now, the problems are on the foldable ready to be solved. The students like to cut and fold and glue while working in their notebooks. It gives them something tactile to do during class. Finally, the foldables are a built in review tool for your students. At the end of a unit, they can go back through their notebooks and solve all the problems on the Stick-n-Solves. Since the work is on the inside, they just open them up to check their answers. Each foldable in this set has two per page. My students are set up in partners, so I give one sheet to each partner pair to cut in half.
This Bundle focuses on Algebra and includes 11 Stick-n-Solve
1. Expressions - CCSS.6.EE.A.2, A.2.C
2. Relationships in Equations - CCSS.6.EE.B.7, C.9
3. Exponents - CCSS.6.EE.A.1
4. Algebraic Expressions - CCSS.6.EE.B.6
5. Commutative & Associative Properties - CCSS.6.EE.A.3
6. Distributive Property - CCSS.6.EE.A.3
7. Solving Equations - CCSS.6.EE.B.5, B.7
8. Writing Equations - CCSS.6.EE.B.7
9. Inequalities - CCSS.6.EE.B.8
10. Solving Inequalities - CCSS.6.EE.B.5, B.8
11. Substitution - CCSS.6.EE.B.5
For each foldable I used last year, you will see two pictures. I’ve included a picture of what our interactive notebook page looked like last year, and another picture which shows how we solved the problems on the inside of each foldable. You may see a new foldable, which I’ve created to use next year, with photos showing how I anticipate it will be used this upcoming school year.
For almost every topic that we cover, I’ve made a foldable. I have created over 50 Stick-n-Solve Foldables for 6th grade common core math and organized them into the following bundles:
2. Fractions and Decimals
3. Numbers and Coordinates
7. Vocab Diagrams
These activities can be found in my Math Interactive Notebook 6th Grade FOLDABLE BUNDLES at 15% or 25% off!!!

Write and evaluate numerical expressions involving whole-number exponents.
Write, read, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers.
Evaluate expressions at specific values of their variables. Include expressions that arise from formulas used in real-world problems. Perform arithmetic operations, including those involving whole-number exponents, in the conventional order when there are no parentheses to specify a particular order (Order of Operations). For example, use the formulas V = s3 and A = 6 s2 to find the volume and surface area of a cube with sides of length s = 1/2.
Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions. For example, apply the distributive property to the expression 3 (2 + x) to produce the equivalent expression 6 + 3x; apply the distributive property to the expression 24x + 18y to produce the equivalent expression 6 (4x + 3y); apply properties of operations to y + y + y to produce the equivalent expression 3y.
Identify when two expressions are equivalent (i.e., when the two expressions name the same number regardless of which value is substituted into them). For example, the expressions y + y + y and 3y are equivalent because they name the same number regardless of which number y stands for.
Understand solving an equation or inequality as a process of answering a question: which values from a specified set, if any, make the equation or inequality true? Use substitution to determine whether a given number in a specified set makes an equation or inequality true.
Use variables to represent numbers and write expressions when solving a real-world or mathematical problem; understand that a variable can represent an unknown number, or, depending on the purpose at hand, any number in a specified set.
Solve real-world and mathematical problems by writing and solving equations of the form x + p = q and px = q for cases in which p, q and x are all nonnegative rational numbers.
Write an inequality of the form x > c or x < c to represent a constraint or condition in a real-world or mathematical problem. Recognize that inequalities of the form x > c or x < c have infinitely many solutions; represent solutions of such inequalities on number line diagrams.
Represent and analyze quantitative relationships between dependent and independent variables.
Use variables to represent two quantities in a real-world problem that change in relationship to one another; write an equation to express one quantity, thought of as the dependent variable, in terms of the other quantity, thought of as the independent variable. Analyze the relationship between the dependent and independent variables using graphs and tables, and relate these to the equation. For example, in a problem involving motion at constant speed, list and graph ordered pairs of distances and times, and write the equation d = 65t to represent the relationship between distance and time.
