those are terms I won't use in my room. It's 'vertical' and 'horizontal'. When I hear those other terms I usually correct them right away, "Oh, you mean to fold the paper vertically?" etc.

my middleschoolers too. now that I've been here awhile they don't ask so
I just wish elementary teachers would stop folding paper in "hamburber" or
"hotdog" and at some point teach the words horizontal and vertical. The
students I get very often have NO IDEA what I mean when I say "horizontal" -
"Oh! She means hotdog!"
