They folded their construction paper like this: 1. Hold it width-wise and fold left and right thumbs down so that folded paper is divided into three parts -- small left, small right, and large middle when you open the left and right (does that make sense?). 2. Open the left and right sides to the inside of the foldable. Draw enough lines to create separate areas for the number of parts of speech you intend to use (this varies with grade level). On these sides, you write the parts of speech with examples. For example, you could write: VERB A verb is an action word. Tommy tried to tie his shoe. And so forth, until both sides contain the parts of speech. This is your "menu." In the middle (the larger section) we would write our "orders" under the heading "What I Would Like to Order from the Parts of Speech Cafe" such as "A sentence with two verbs and an adjective," or "A paragraph with four nouns, two prepositions and three verbs." The student would then write out what her or his "order" entailed on a sheet of notebook paper. You can vary the levels of the "orders" according to grade. This was just something I came up with spur of the moment (or maybe I stole the idea from somewhere :haha. Anyway, the kids loved it and they kept their menus and actually referred back to them, so I considered this a successful foldable.
