I have used Foldables in Notebooks for elementary and middle school students. I really like them and the students like them as well. Foldables gives students another opportunity to use their hands to engage with science content. They are cutting, folding, gluing and making sense of the content. You can't go wrong with  them!!!!!

2 Blending In Review
I think then Blending idea is great. However, I thought the steps for students to follow was missing some key important details to help you follow the lesson. For example, the article starts talking about having groups counting 100 M&M's of the same color. However, the article does not clearly define what you have given the kids to count. Did you give them a bag of M&M's or previously sorted M&M's. These details would make the lesson easier to follow. I gave it 1 star because the article was hard to follow. I also gave it a star for being a good idea.
