Hi Rosalinda! Any standard set would be fine! I just got mine from Target or ones at the dollar store would work too. If you want to you could order the standard set from Lakeshore Learning. My kids also use them as an early finisher activity and use dry erase markers for a quick review. Hope you enjoy the set!

I didn't know if you had any other issues like this or if it was just my computer. I tried printing it 2 times and they all had that thick black bar on it. Just wondering! Thanks!!!

I am so glad you love it Brittany! I haven't heard of that happening to anyone, do you see the black line when you open the file or it just prints that way? If its just printing that way, maybe something is going on with your printer? You can contact TPT tech support, they are very helpful with answering technical questions when there is a problem with a printer.

Leah K. re: Interactive Math Notebook for Kindergarten {Unit 1: Numbers 1-5}
I've read about INB but I've never actually bought, tried or used one. So excited I found this one for kinders! This is the first INB I've bought. I'll make sample one for myself before leading kids, but I have a few questions. What size notebooks is this intended for, composition size or spiral-type 8x10 (8.5 X 11)? How many pages completed? Do you leave left page blank as mentioned INB for in secondary grade? If so what do you have students put on lft page? Do you have any other usage tips for INB for Kinders? I'm a student teacher and I would love to try in the class I'm training with.
March 19, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Karen Jones
Karen Jones  (TpT Seller)
Hi Leah! I am so glad you are trying them out! My kids use a regular composition book. It depends if you plan to use it every day or not. My notebook units provide 20 entries, enough for you to use daily for a month if you choose. The bundle is 180 entries, so one a day for the whole year. My kids notebook about 2-3 times per week, so I have them put use both sides of the page. We don't take "notes" in them as notebooks in the upper grades may, so we don't leave any blank pages. I would say prep everything, have them cut and trimmed and ready to go. Also, what has been very helpful this year for my kinders is to hot glue a ribbon (about 6 inches or so) into the back cover of the notebook. Train the kids to put the ribbon inside the page you are working on, so that the next time they can open easily to the next blank page without having to flip. My kids love their notebook and it has been a great tool to track their learning this year. Let me know if you have any other questions, and good luck student teaching! :)

Hi Doretta! I added the "Graph it" activities for L, R, S blends. I also fixed a couple of typos. One on the "Color it" short/long vowels and another on the "Build a CVC" for short u. When you do redownload the file it will download the whole file though. You can't just download a few pages. I would just delete your old file if you have it saved on your computer, and then redownload the new one. :)

Hello Priya!
They would complement each other. The Interactive Math Notebook is meant to be used as a quick introduction to a lesson or a quick review of a concept. They are meant to be used daily, and glued into a composition or spiral notebook. They typically take my class about 5 mintues to complete. The ULTIMATE Printable Math Pack are worksheets that can just be printed and used for a lesson or for homework. Both items cover a wide range of skills. Hope this helps!

Hi karen! Thanks for responding! I went through the sight word mats to double check which ones I was missing from the F & P 25 and 50 lists.

I thought maybe my list was outdated (from 2008) but I looked at the list you used for the sight word notebooks with F & P and I have the same lists. Is it possible buy the additional words?

Hi Linda! I am so glad you love it! I just included 1 of 24 and 25 because I didn't want to waste a whole sheet of paper for 2 more numbers. I also thought that would help keep the number of cards manageable for the kids. If you would like to just focus on higher numbers, you can have the kids just use a few copies of the teens and twenties, or use a few copies of the single digit cards, and have each student pick 2 cards and make a 2 digit number with them before comparing. Hope that helps! Thanks so much for your purchase! :)

Hi Summer-- Sure of course! Would you rather a themed item or something more general?

In your interactive notebook kindergarten the number sense you have tabs with 2 + 3 + 5 with cutable lines. Can I have blank ones at the end of the packet so I can create my own problems?

Yes there are some blank clocks in there. You would have to insert the arrow picture on word or powerpoint. :)

Hi! I have to say I just love your stuff and so does my class! This is my first year in a K class (coming from Pre-K). There are times in my day where I meet with my low readers and need to have work for my other kids. They just love your word detective pages from your phonics pack. By any chance do you have another pack with those or is this something you can do?

Hi! I'm so glad you are enjoying everything! Which activity were you referring to? I don't think I have one called word detectives? What I have been using in my classroom for reading group time are my magnetic letter centers. They all are independent with an element of accountability. Do you have any of those? Right now, my kids are working on the "Building CVC Words" pack. They can either do it with magnetic letters or dry erase. They self check and write the words while I meet with my reading groups. Hope this helps! :)

Hi Karen,

I would love a sight word notebook using Fry words. Any chance you could make one with the first 200 words?

Me again, do you create the art for your products, or do you purchase it. Thank you for your time.

I do purchase all of the art-- My favorite place for background papers is Sassy Designs, and most of my clipart I purchase from artists right here on TpT! My favorite artists are Melonheadz, Pink Cat Studio, and Krista Wallden. I also love Kimberly Geswein's fonts. Hope that helps!

Good morning, Karen. Perhaps you have answered this question...do you have notebook covers (similar to the covers of your units-banners, bows, and dots -in pretty colors) available for purchase?

I love all your products. They are some of my favorites that I have purchased. My question is this.....do you have a Language Arts Common Core Assassment Pack like you do for Math? If not do you know someone that has one that you use?

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 11 years in a public elementary school, the last 3 years teaching Kindergarten. I absolutely love, love, love this age! Prior to K, I worked as a Math intervention teacher for grades 2, 3, 4, and 5. As a child I always wanted to be a teacher. A special gift that my parents gave me when I started teaching was a framed piece of work that I had done in Kindergarten, on which my teacher wrote "When I grow up I want to be..." and after that was written "teacher" with a picture I had drawn of me as the teacher. Even in Kindergarten I knew what I was meant to do! :)

MY TEACHING STYLE

I just love when my kids and I are having fun together while learning. We sing, dance, and laugh every day. It makes learning so much more exciting! The most important thing in my mind is for the kids to go home with a smile on their face. I think my job in kindergarten is so important because it sets the tone for the rest of their educational career. I want them to know that learning is fun.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My best honor yet? Being a mom to my 2 little munchkins! :)

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and Special Education, as well as a Master's Degree in Childhood Education.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I live with my husband Bob and our two children Brady (5) and Reese (2). We love to travel and do anything outdoors!
