Don't you feel great when you finish up a new resources for your students?
I just wanted to share that I'm so glad that I decided to bind my Fold It Ups into a book this year! I only have about 40 minutes for math class, so there isn't much extra time for passing out and creating the Fold It Ups and then securing them into a notebook. However, having them bound requires students to simply take out their books and get started...and this does save a little bit of time. Then we don't have to staple or glue into a notebook, and that saves a LOT of time.
Once the Fold It Ups are completed, they stay in the book for the students to keep with them all the time. They can use them as a reference when doing their practice work/homework and will be able to refer to them throughout the year. I also included lined pages for notes in between the Fold It Ups for additional topics, examples, etc.
This has been very handy so far!
Using this book is so much easier than last year, when we were stapling or gluing the Fold It Ups into notebooks or trying to keep them in pockets. I'm so excited about how this is working out!
