I'm really excited about the product and have already begun to use it in my classroom. I would certainly recommend this product to my colleagues. Even the students are excited about the fact that they can "interact" with the content. They feel like their books have become flip books or like one student said his book has "come alive". Thank you for making this interactive notebook available.

If I remember correctly, the version offered when I first purchased your product had a table of contents for the students to fill out as we did each skill (not the skill page table of contents). I tried to reprint it, and it seems to be gone. Can you put it back in, or a similar version? It is quite useful when we refer back to our notebooks.

Do you have directions that come with this pack? If I have never used an interactive journal do you think I will be able to figure this out? I really want to incorporate this into my class but would hate to purchase it and feel clueless!
Do you teach the concept/skill then have them do the activity in their interactive journals?
Thanks- again sorry for all the questions.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  September 30, 2013The Lesson Plan Diva answered:
Yes there are instructions with each activity. I teach the skill and then use the skill activity as a reinforcer. All activities go in their notebook. I send them home on the weekends for the students to study and review but that part is up to you. Thanks!

Should I rather buy the Kinder and first package?

The first and second pack is common core aligned to both grade levels. Kindergarten is aligned to kindergarten a lot of the standards overlap between grade levels.

one more question-- how do you file and organize the worksheets? so for example if you are not studying nouns do you just keep them in a hanging file folder? Thanks again....

On  September 22, 2013Lori Mor (TpT Seller) asked:
love this! I have several questions before purchasing.
Do you keep it in a writing notebook?
How often do you send it home?
Do your students do this for centers, partners, whole group, etc.?
Exactly how do you set it up in your class and how does it look?
What do you do with your students who are not reading?
lastly, does this take the place of doing so many worksheets, etc
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  September 23, 2013The Lesson Plan Diva answered:
I keep these in a spiral notebook. I send home on weekends. They can do them for centers, individual, and small group. We are usually doing this altogether unless the other groups are doing something different. Yes this takes the place of worksheets. Hope this helps!

I downloaded the Interactive Math Notetaking Problem Solving Pack. It has numbers and letters that looked like they have been written over or on top of, spaces where there shouldn't be, and some pages that look like they are written in a foreign language. What am I doing wrong??????? I want to buy the Language Arts one, but I am afraid the same thing will happen!
