Products Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some frequently asked questions (and their answers) about our products.

Is there one book that has all the folds in it?

Most of Dinah's books have instructions for making Foldables. Each of the Big Book series includes a section of instructions for making the folds. The VKV books also each include an appendix of instructions on how to make Foldables.

If I teach all subjects in my elementary classroom, do I need to buy all the Big Books?

Not really (though you certainly may!). Each of the Big Books (Big Book of Social Studies, Big Book of Math, Big Book of Science) has a section of instructions at the beginning showing how to create each of Dinah's Foldables. The books also each contain a section of suggested activities for grade level appropriate topics for the subject and an additional section of graphics to support your instructional activities.

Purchase the book or books that provide you the support you need in terms of instructional activity ideas or reproducible graphics.

Can I use the Notebook Foldables book with my 2nd grade students?

Yes! In fact, almost immediately after we published thousands of copies of this book with the subtitle indicating its use with students from 4th grade to college, we heard from teachers of younger students and we were quickly convinced of our error! Notebooking or journaling can be done with students of all ages.

Have your prices changed recently?

Well, yes and no. We have always been very mindful of our pricing, wanting to provide the best value for you and also cover our costs. As we worked on this new store, we were presented with some design choices that led us to include standard shipping costs in the price of our physical products. We generally added as little as we could to ship your materials to you as quickly as possible. You'll note that prices on those products include shipping within the 48 contiguous United States (sorry, Alaska and Hawaii!); please contact our office by email or phone (800-99-DINAH) for shipping rates and options for other areas. Our customer service team will be glad to help you find the best shipping option for your needs.

How do I search this website?
