5.0 out of 5 starsKids love it and teacher's too!July 23 2005
By Susan M. Wolfe - Published on Amazon.com
As an Instructional Facilitator at my school, we received this guide to help students remember key concepts in math, however our teachers have adapted these ideas to use with science and social studies concepts also. The teachers find this to be a creative way to help the children organize the facts and their ideas, and the kids love to get to do something different than just take notes or complete a study guide.

5.0 out of 5 starsGreat tool!July 26 2010

Even with as much technology that is available to students, students still love to create things with their hands. THis book offers many good ideas on note taking and concept building through paper folding. It is a great resource book to have for math teachers of all grade levels.

5.0 out of 5 starsAlternatives to worksheetsJuly 1 2012
By Burrell - Published on Amazon.com
We know that students need to practice taught skills using worksheets, but this book offers an alternative to some of those worksheets. This book offers a hands on experience for the students to show their comprehension of the taught skill. A wonderful way to engage students in learning. I will be purchasing more of Dinah's books.

I don't recall when I first heard about foldables and now I can't remember life without them -- if you are in education and want to try something new, colorful and tactile I'd recommend any of Dinah Zike's works.
