Woohoo Templates!

Ok, quick post.

Hope everyone had a great Monday! I'm super jealous of those of you guys already out for the summer!

Retesting starts tomorrow and I really hope my little ones do well!

I have a new product at my store. I know it's been a while!  Things have just been so busy, my creative juices haven't really been flowing.

You guys know that I love lapbooks and foldables.  So a while back I thought it would be pretty nifty to create a file of templates to make it easier to create your own lapbooks for your classrooms! Then someone emailed me about it, and I knew I had to get with it!

The file includes a PDF with templates and instructions, as well as a folder of jpeg images.  It includes templates to create the following foldables:

1. Lapbook Cover
2. Accordion Fold
3. FlipBook
4. 2 Flap Brochure
5. Pyramid Fold
6. Four or Six Square Brochure
7. Pocket with Cards
8. 3, 4, 5, or 6 Flap Shutterfold

So, you can either print out the PDF and write on the page. OR you can use the images in Microsoft Word, Publisher, etc to create your own computer generated file with graphics and text! Pretty cool and easy huh?

Terms of Use– These templates are for PERSONAL USE only. Please do not use these templates to create a product for sale.

For the next two days, you can grab it at my TN Shop for $1.50! Yep, $1.50! After the sale,  it will be $2.50 at TPT and TN!

I will give it away to two people who comment and let me know what type of lapbook they would like to make with the templates!  Be sure to leave an email.  I'll choose 2 people with Random Generator on Thursday!


  1. oOo, I could use these for everything! Reading, Writing, Social Studies and Science!


  2. Love this! I would make pockets with sight word cards using that template!

  4. I would use them all to make my interactive reading journals more interesting next year...


  5. I'm so glad that you made these! Something like this was on my to do list for the summer, but now I don't have to make them!

    Will Grade For Coffee

  6. Ooohhh ... these look great! I really want to use lap books regularly in science and social studies next year as a way to move away from just worksheets.


  7. I've never made lapbooks before... though I have many ideas floating around for how to use them ~ our core novels, matter, rocks and minerals, Native Americans, fractions!

  8. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I dabbled a little with them toward the end of this year - the kids loved them! I can't wait to use them throughout the whole year next year. I want to use them for math, science and social studies vocabulary and tier 2 vocabulary in our reading series. The possibilities are endless!!!!

    :D Angie

  9. I want to create some lapbooks for grammar.

  10. How neat! I would use these during science and social studies the most, but I think they would come in handy across the curriculum!

  11. I love these! I would use them to organize different elements of our weekly stories :)


    Dirty Hands and Lesson Plans

  12. These are fantastic! I would not only use them in reading but my writing classes as well. Thanks! :)

  13. I would use then for science and social studies since you could always add to it as you continue your theme


  14. I would love to use this to make a lapbook on Fractions!

    Thanks so much for making this.


  15. These look great! I am teaching math and science next year and feel they would be great for those 2 subjects. I already use foldables, but would like to use them to a greater extent next year.
    Thanks so much for taking the time to create these templates!!

  16. I saw a great one I want to use for testing strategies next year if I'm still in 3rd.


  17. I LOVE foldables!! I can think of so many uses already! Verb tenses, place value, story elements, character traits...oh the possibilities! I'm hosting my first giveaway right now! Two winners will receive gift cards to Donors Choose or Teachers Pay Teachers! Stop by and enter!


    Third Grade's A Charm

  18. Foldables are great! We make a flip book that talks about the different parts of plants. I thought you might like this since I saw you were studying plants. You take three pieces of paper, stagger them, then fold and staple at the top so that you have 6 flaps. Draw one part of the plant on each flap: seed, roots, stem, leaves, flower, use the top for a title: Parts of a Plant. Then when you open the flap that you drew each picture on, you write the purpose of that part of the plant. It always turns out cool.

    By the way, I am a new follower and also just started my own blog. I will be teaching 3rd grade next year and we are also working to switch over to the common core. I hope you'll check out my blog!


Leave some love!
