Literary Terms Foldable
This manipulative activity gives students practice finding literary terms in literature.
To create the foldable, provide each students with three pieces of differently colored construction or printer paper. Model for them how to fold the paper (in a "hamburger fold") so that the top sheet is about 3 inches and each remaining tab is about an inch wide. Staple the 'book' along the top so that all tabs flip up. The students should title the top tab (the biggest one) "literary terms" and then write one of five literary terms along each remaining tab. Working in groups, have students write the definition of the literary term on the top of the flap (the part that is covered by the previous tab) and write an example of that literary term from any work of literature on the back of the appropriate tab. When I have students create tab books, I allow them to use them as aides during tests or in-class essays.
Foldables can and should be used in any subject area.
Dinah Zike is the foldable queen! Buy one of her books and remake your teaching style! The one I have is Dinah Zike's Foldables for Teaching Mathematics. The idea to use it with literary terms was mine.
