Our Guest Blogger Is Here!

We are participating in Primary Possibilities Linky Party!  Today I am so excited to guest post on Meg's blog!

First, I should probably tell you a bit about myself. My name is Jennifer Smith-Sloane and I am in my 10th year of teaching. I just began teaching Special Education Math for Grades 3-8 through Texas Virtual Academy after the past four years teaching 7th and 8th Grade Math and Resource Math and 2nd and 5th grades prior to that.

Over the past 3 years, I have been using Interactive Notebooks in my math classes and have LOVED every minute of it (possibly more than my students at times). I spent a lot of time this summer creating materials for the first few units for both of my 7th Grade Math and 7th and 8th Grade Resource Math classes and have continued to develop them all year!


Once of the first Flippables that we created was for Converting Fractions, Decimals and Percents and my students still refer back to this regularly. The file in my Teachers Pay Teachers store includes the Flippable Template, the labels for the outside, as well as the steps and example for the inside.


Another one that my Resource Students created was over Mean, Median, Mode and Range and we used the inside to create a Frequency Graph over how many hours that we each slept before finding the Mean, Median, Mode and Range. The Flippable Template, the cut out pieces and graph are all included in the Mean, Median, Mode and Range Flippable in my Teachers Pay Teachers store.



Since I love created Flippables so much, I worked on creating a Flippable Template Pack including 51 templates for various Flippables to have on hand. And because I love them so much, I have them available for only $9.99 this weekend only! Grab them before Sunday at Midnight when they will go back up to $14.75!



Now, if you would like to try a Flippable Template for free, I have offered up the Envelope Flippable Template as a Google Doc download. Simply click on the picture to download it for FREE! The FREEBIE is blank and ready for you to use to hold vocabulary cards, spelling words, sight words, etc. The sky is endless! It would also be great if you had a paper manipulative you wanted the students to keep handy.

I would love to have you follow me through any of the following different ways. And thank you so much Meg for allowing me to be a guest blogger for you today as a part of the Blog Hop!

  1. I teach kindergarten, but loved reading about your flip books. I love how they can be integrated into any subject. Thank you for linking up. Stephanie
