Friday Foldables and Freebies

Linking up again with Stephanie from Fifth Grade Dugout for a Friday Foldable. 

These are matchbooks. I made this last year for my students to do the first week of school as we reviewed divisibility rules. Well, time was not my friend and they ended up gluing a sheet with the rules on it. BORING! 

This is not a hard foldable, but as a first or second one, it could get tricky. 
So, I made this: 

It may look confusing, but it's not, I promise. The only lines the students really need is the black ones. That line if for the "folded lip". 

Step 1 Fold the paper in half long way and cut apart (green line)

Step 2 Fold up to the black line. 

Step 3: Fold the paper into fourths (red line)

Step 4: Fold the top down into the "flap",  Cut apart. 

Viola! Match books! 

Since this will be one of our first foldables of the year, I will make copies with the black line. I won't do it again now that they have made a match book. I am not about wasting copies when they can just fold paper. It's about planning and time management for me.
