Freebie Friday Sept. 13

If you are a regular follower, I've already told you about this freebie. But in case you missed it or are new to my blog, I created these posters to display in the room as we are doing our foldables.
Free posters to show "hot dog" and "hamburger" folding
One of the folds that we talk about and use a lot is referred to as a "hot dog" fold. That means that you fold the paper lengthwise to make the paper long and skinny.

For a "hamburger fold," you fold it widthwise (is that a word?) to make it short and fat. It is hard to see on these posters because of the white background, but the black dotted line shows where you would make the fold. However, your paper could be a different size than mine. Regardless, when you do a hamburger fold, you are taking the longer side and halving it. I'm probably making this harder than it is...

Once in a great while we will do a "taco fold." That is when you have a square piece of paper and you fold it so that the points meet, making a isosceles triangle. At least that's what I call it. Do you call that type of fold something else? Maybe I should make a poster for that, too...

  2. So cute! Isn't it funny how we all use the same words for the folds, even though we are from all over the country? Great minds think alike!
