I've received some questions about how to make these foldables so I'm going to show you guys. It's very easy and student friendly! With that said I hope you can use these in your room.
Materials: 4 lunch paper bags, 1 large rubber band, 1 square sheet of colored paper or 4 note cards
First lay 1 paper bag with the flap on your left side facing up.
Next your going to lay the paper bags one on top of each other with the flaps switching from left to right. So the first flap is on the left side the next bag will have the flap on the right side still facing up and continue pattern until all of your bags are on top of each other.
Then your going to fold them in half.
After you have folded them unfold your bags and cut about 1 inch on each corner where folded. A total of 2 cuts.
Then your going to place your rubber band in the middle inside the slits. Voila your book is made.
Now using your solid colored paper fold into 4 equal parts, cut and insert them into the bag openeing. They will be used for extra paper if needed or what ever you want. I used mine as definition cards to show UPSL.
Here's a look inside my problem solving book.
My students show examples of how to use the UPSL method when solving story problems. Sorry mine is so messy. I would love to hear of ways you could use this in your classroom.
