Minds in Bloom is happy to present Terri Izatt from KinderKapers with a guest post on the game Fold the Line. We know you’ll love it!
Next you read a statement. Have the students decide if they agree or disagree with your statement and how strongly they agree or disagree. Students line up along the line: 1= they agree strongly, 5= they both agree and disagree, 10= they strongly disagree (okay, it would work the opposite way too, just make sure they know which end is agree and which is disagree).
Now comes the tricky part….wherever the middle of the line ends up being, that is where you fold. If your line tends to be bunched up at one end….don’t worry. You just want to have about the same number of students on each side of the fold. Bend the line there at the mid-point, and the students need to walk towards each other. Ones should end up across from the 10s, and the fours, fives, and sixes are in the middle across from each other, too.
Terri has taught for 28 years while raising four beautiful children, and now she is blessed with 12 wonderful grandchildren. She has taught every grade in K-6, but most of her teaching years have been in 2nd. Recently, she has gone back to Kindergarten and thinks she would love to stay there for a good long time.
