Thankful Journals

 Thankful Journals!
We stapled writing paper inside a construction paper folder.

I used this model for the students to follow for their writing.
Then, every day in November they have written in their journals.

They have been so creative in thinking of things that they're thankful for.  

Blessings to you,

Foldables Week

Thinking of Teaching is hosting a Foldables Week.  I'm excited to contribute!  Make sure you go visit her!
Today we made "math catchers" to practice our 4 times tables. First we followed these directions to fold the paper:
Then, we labeled the flaps with the 4 times tables.
Next, we challenged each other!

We had lots of fun practicing our math facts!
The great thing about this foldable is it can be adapted to any subject area!  
How do you plan on using it in your classroom?
