FREE - 2017 New Year Goal Foldable
I made one of these foldables years ago when I was in the classroom and thought I would give it another try.
Normally under the last flap it reads "list the titles of X amount of books you will read this year" but I thought that would be difficult for children who aren't sitting around with a list of book titles they are dying to read. So instead I used the "7" to indicate the amount of months left before school starts in August. Under that flap I am encouraging students to set a goal of reading one chapter book a month. Of course I would love for students to read more then that but I thought it was a "doable" goal, particularly for the reluctant readers.
I uploaded the foldable to the ClassFlow Marketplace. If you aren't a member you will need to make a free account.
The foldable packet comes with two different layouts. One is better for three hole punching and keeping in a binder. The other is better if you plan to hang the foldables in the hallway.
I also modified the foldable slightly for younger grade levels (grades 1-2) so there are two different grade ranges in the packet.
The foldable is EDITABLE in case you want to modify anything. The instructions on how to edit it from a PDF is included in the instructions.
I started this blog many years ago as a classroom science teacher with the express purpose of sharing notebooking ideas with other educators. I have since moved into a technology coach position within our district so this site has morphed into a general teaching blog. Basically anything that I see or do in schools that I think is pretty cool gets highlighted here. If you are visiting to find notebooking information please look at my earlier posts. I have tried to label all my posts so information is easier to find...so, when in doubt look at the labels. As always, if you have any question please feel free to email me and I will do my best to help!
