Vocabulary Foldables

Vocabulary Foldables are a creative, effective way to help students learn and use new words.

This link will take you to a page that will give you directions for and samples of a Vocabulary Foldable. Each word will have an illustration of the target wordthe word used in a sentence and a definition of the word to help cement new learning for students.
If I were doing this I would use some part of the Vocabulary Foldable for students to draw an example and non example of the word when applicable. Using examples and non examples has been proven to be a key component in effective vocabulary instruction.
Remember, vocabulary instruction occurs throughout the day, in all subject areas, so the Vocabulary Foldable will work for you all day long!

These links below take you to actual print outs of a Vocabulary Foldable you can use with your class. This will save the time you would spend creating the foldables with the students and leave more time for instruction and practice.
