What research says is
important:
Active student participation occurs as
students create Foldables©.
Students need to practice a skill 24 times
in order to obtain 80% mastery.
Classroom Instruction That Works says
that strategies should be integrated.

Ideas are found all
over the internet, now.
Most were created and modeled from
the inspiration and designs of Dinah
Zike.

The teacher in the blog link below uses a large
Foldable to house each week’s vocab, spelling,
phonics activities, etc. from Monday through
Thursday. Then students show their completed
compilation of work on Fridays.

Activities included a topic of the week
cover page, their patterning of sounds,
writing sentences and spelling words,
categorizing words, etc. All were done
on smaller Foldables that were glued to
the larger one.
This way the students walk away with a
product, rather than a stack of papers.
Student engagement? Yes.
A Dinah Zike training will be held at
CESA 5 in Portage in April, 2014!
