Fun folds: Life on the water

  • 14 Accesses


Fun Folds is a creative format for teaching language. Through use of this paper-folding art form, language teaching gains a new dimension. Learning becomes active, rather than passive. This multisensory, multidimensional program helps children develop temporalspatial concepts and expand oral expression, auditory and visual memory and sequencing skills, visual-motor proficiency, and receptive and expressive language skills as they participate in an enjoyable, stimulating and interesting paper-folding activity.
