First, a bit of info on where I come in on the whole Interactive Notebook "spectrum"... Like many of you, I am a USER of interactive notebooks, not a seller. In fact, I am using them with my students for the first time this year. I am soooo excited about the potential of these notebooks! As the year progresses, students will have more and more of the standards at their fingertips for constant reference. As an ESL teacher, I truly appreciate the visual aid or graphic organizer attached to most notebook entries. I really feel that ALL students will benefit years from now from their use with interactive notebooks in elementary and middle school. Several times already this fall, I have found myself asking, “Why didn’t I start using these years ago?”
There are a number of excellent “out of the box” interactive notebook products available. However, my plan is to have
|Inference craftivity added to notebook.|
|Definition under each flap.|
|Pie sized to fit in notebook.|
So… that’s my plan! I am hopeful that these visual references will help students retain all of the skills we will be learning and practicing throughout the year. I’ll keep my blog followers updated on how it goes!
• Main Idea and Supporting Details
• Context Clues
• Themes in Literature
I hope you find them useful. (Also note that this is a "flash freebie" available for free exclusively on my blog this weekend only ... get it now!) And if you want to see the complete craftivity that “inspired” these pages, check them out at my TpT store.
