Creating Vocabulary Flips
Students cut out a vocabulary flip sheet by cutting on the dotted lines. They should cut the dotted line between each picture but not cut past the solid lines. Next, students fold each vocabulary flip on the solid lines. Then they glue the uncut strip on the left of each vocabulary flip onto their paper. Now the flips should be ready for note taking. Each picture can be flipped up for notes on the back and on the paper underneath. You should model each step for them and show students vocabulary flip that has been correctly cut out.

Filling in the Definitions
Use the definition sheets to guide students through note taking. If you don't have an overhead projector, you can import the PDF into your Interactive Whiteboard software or PowerPoint. The note taking overheads include two columns. The left is for the back of the flap. It has the graphic and vocabulary term. I require my students to write the word but not to draw the graphic; it is already on the front of the flap. I include the graphic to make sure everyone is in the correct spot when taking notes. The right column is for students to copy onto the paper beneath the flap.

These sheets are short worksheets to use to make sure that the students understand each concept. They are not meant to be used as inclusive assessments but to see who needs help with a concept prior to assessment time.

I have over 15 years experience working with elementary aged students. My specialty is making math products.

I believe:

  • Math can and should be fun.
  • Learners need lots and lots of practice with manipulatives and hands-on strategies before they can solve abstract problems.
  • We need to let children explore concepts and not force them to memorize formulas to solve problems.
