Hi Nicole,

I just saw your interactive notebooks and I am excited to start using them this upcoming school year. I was just curious if your pages fit a composition book or spiral notebook?

Thanks!

Hi Kacie,

I made the templates to fit a standard sized Composition notebook, but teachers have told me that they have put them in spiral notebooks and they have worked great. You can really use either one.

Hi Nicole,

I will be teaching a 4/5 combo class this upcoming year and would like to purchase the interactive reading and language notebooks. I had purchased the third grade set last year and absolutely loved them!

I was wondering, as a teacher on a very tight budget, do you think it would be possible to teach using only one grade level's notebooks? If so, which? Thank you!

Hi Nicole,
I used your interactive math journal, for 5th grade, last year and loved it! I just bought the interactive Lang Art and will use it too this year. I notice on the ELA pages you have ideas already written (ie. for theme). It looks like you used certain books to write these ideas about and I was wondering if you could share what books you used?
Thanks, Nikki

Hi Nikki,

Are you sure you purchased my notebooks? I am just making sure because I don't have math notebooks. I just wanted to make sure it is my product you are actually asking about. I use a variety of books to teach theme, but mainly the students use books that they are reading. I do love Patricia Polacco books for teaching theme, though.

Thanks,
Nicole

Hi Nicole,

I'm teaching a 1/2 combo this coming school year and I was told my students in both grades are reading above grade level. Would you suggest I purchase the Interactive Notebook for second grade? Also, I like your suggestion about gluing the I can statements ahead of time and teaching the common core standards in order as they follow the curriculum map/pacing guide. Would this work for my combo class?

Nicole Shelby  (TpT Seller)
Hi Kim,

I guess my question to you is, what set of standards are you teaching? If you are teaching the 2nd grade standards, then I think the notebook would be great. If you are teaching the 1st grade standards, then I wouldn't recommend the notebook because it is not going to align perfectly. As far as gluing in the standards ahead of time, I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work for you. With your class including 1st grade students, you might send home a note and have the parents number the pages in the notebook so you don't have to spend time doing that. Just a thought.

Thanks so much!
Nicole

Buyer re: 4th Grade Language Interactive Notebook (aligned with the Common Core)
I hate to ask this because I know that making the notebooks is soooo much work, but are you coming out with any new fourth grade ones this year (even if it is in the fall or winter)? I live in a rural area and my school does not provide the composition notebooks. I have to add them to the parent supply list before school starts and because of the remote location of my town, parents have to travel about 60 miles to get school supplies. I love everything you create and am grateful that you share your talent with all of us. Thank you so much!

Hi,

I can't really answer that question. I have several things on my to-do lists. I will tell you that I don't have anything coming out in the near future (as in July or August), but past that point, I have no idea. I would like to hope that I will start scratching things off my to-do list, but how much time I have available is a big factor. I know this is not a direct answer and probably doesn't help you much, but I don't want to tell you that I won't have another notebook come out and then go back on my word because I had time in the fall to work.

Thanks so much!

I purchased your Reading Notebook last august but never used it. I'm going to use it this year. Interactive notebook is new to me. I'm just wondering and know my second graders. Is there a way to make I can statements smaller so they won't hang on the edge of the page.
Thanks

Nicole Shelby
Nicole Shelby  (TpT Seller)
Hi Mary,

You should not have any problems with getting the "I can" statements to fit in the top of your notebooks, as long as you have a standard sized Composition book. My suggestion would be to play around with your printer settings when you are printing from Adobe Reader. I would try the following:

On the Page Sizing and Handling Setting:
- Choose "Shrink Oversized Pages"

If that doesn't work:
- Choose custom scale and change the percentage a little bit

I do not have to do this when I print out my headers either at school or at home, so I am not sure which of the avenues will be the best, but this should fit your printer settings for the document.

I hope this helps!

Thanks,
Nicole

Ms. Shelby,
Good afternoon!
I recently purchased one of your products: Grade 2 Language Notebook aligned with 2nd grade ELA CCSS. I have saved it to my computer and I can't seem to get any of your pages to print. I know its not my computer as I have purchased other interactive notebooks from other teachers and the individual pages print just fine. My husband who is tech savvy (I am not) said that there must be some sort of print block on your product. If this is the case, are you able to 'unblock' or 'unlock' it for me or, at the very least, e-mail me with some instructions on what I can be doing differently to print your notebook. Thank you :)
Respectfully,

Hi Kari,

I am sorry that you are having printing issues. It does happen from time to time for reasons, I don't quite understand. I can offer you a few suggestions as to how to correct the problem.

1) Make sure that you save the document to your computer rather than trying to print from TpT.

2) Make sure that you have the most updated version of Adobe Reader.

3) This blog post offers some other suggestions as to how to correct issues, such as this. http://2ndgradestuff.blogspot.com/2013/04/help-i-cant-save-or-print-my-tpt-file.html

I am going to send you the files via email as well…in hopes that this might help as well.

If none of these things work, please contact TpT for assistance. They actually provide the technical support for purchases made from the site.

I wish there was something more that I could do to help, but there is no "unblock" or "unlock" I can do to help you with printing. You should be able to print the file with no issues.

Be looking for my email and again, I do apologize for the inconvenience.

Thank you,
Nicole

Well, I wouldn't recommend purchasing all of the notebooks. It's difficult to say, but I would suggest maybe the 4th grade notebook and make modifications for your 3rd grade and 5th grade students. The notebooks are similar enough that you shouldn't have too many issues doing this.

Hello Ms. Shelby, I purchased the third grade interactive Reading and Language/Arts notebook. I am being moved to 4th grade this coming up school year. I saw a few weeks back that another buyer had the same issue. I did my senior II internship last fall in 4th grade and the teacher was using your 4th grade notebooks. Is there a way you could help me because I noticed similar objectives across both grades. Thanks!! Oh super excited about your "Clue" activities coming up. I have already started looking on Ebay.

Hi Holly,

If you email me, I can send you a copy of the 3rd grade notebook without the standard numbers. This will give you the ability to make the modifications as need because the standards are so similar.

I hope you find some Clue books. They aren't easy to come by.

Thanks so much!

I purchased your language interactive notebook for 3rd grade. I've read your introduction and understand that you put it in the order of the standards for simplicity's sake. However, you never told the order in which you teach it. Do you teach ALL about nouns - combining your plural nouns page, abstract nouns, etc. THEN, teach pronouns - personal, subject, object, possessive, etc. Sometimes I get so bogged down with the details. Thanks for the help!
July 17, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Nicole Shelby
Nicole Shelby  (TpT Seller)
Hi,

Yes, I did put the standards in order for simplicity and I also have the kids put the notebook in that order. At the beginning of the school year, the students number the pages in their Composition notebooks, and we glue in all of the "I can" statements. That way the students' notebooks are ready to go and they are uniform. The notebooks can follow any curriculum map/pacing guide that are aligned with the CCSS. To me, it makes the most sense to teach nouns, all at the same time, then move from there, but the order is definitely left up to the teacher as to what works best for his/her students. I don't want the notebook to bog you down. I think if you take my suggestion of gluing in all of the "I can" statements first, you will see that you can follow your district's curriculum map.

I hope this helps!
Thanks,
Nicole

Hi Christina,

I would recommend that you choose one of the other. I wouldn't recommend that you purchase them both anyway. I am not sure of the ability of your students, but I would look at the notebooks and see which would better suit your needs. If I were to guess, with the CCSS being new to your students, the 2nd grade notebook is probably going to be a better fit. This is just my opinion, so you can take it for what it is worth. :)

Please let me know if you have any other questions. I am happy to help. Thanks for your interest in my notebooks.

Hi Shelby, I just bought quite a few of your interactive journals. I love journals and I wanted to do something exciting this year and I love your product. I want to know if you have a lesson plan for introducing these to the students. Also, I want to know whether you do make your journal too with them or ahead of time? From my experience, if I do ahead of time it saves time but then most of them try to copy mine!

Hi,

You might find this blog post helpful for our we started putting together our notebooks. It saves time and helps with consistency. We always put together our notebooks within the first few days of school. http://teachingwithblondeambition.blogspot.com/2013/08/so-we-have-began-our-reading.html

I never make my journal pages ahead of time. The photos that I have included are a snapshot of what could be included. Each class is different. I do have ideas and guide the students to include some things, but no two class's notebooks look exactly the same and are individualized for what they think is important to include.

I hope this helps!

Where did you get your Mythology clip art? I'm trying to make a novel unit for my class on The Lightning Thief and wanted to jazz it up! Thanks!

Hi Deborah,

I'm not sure which set you are referring to, but one set I used came from Melonheadz and some came from The Library Fox.

Thanks,

I came across your TPT store because someone mentioned your interactive notebooks in a blog. Oh. My. Goodness! I love them! I teach first grade and I was going to beg for first grade versions, but I can see from all the comments below that you are well aware we'd love them for first grade. Ha! I will definitely be purchasing them when they are available. Thank you in advance for a wonderful product. Your hard work is appreciated. :-)

Does this interactive notebook have flip pages and the 3D like appearance or is everything flat to be glued in with notes?

This file consists of mostly of flat images to be glued in the notebook. The preview will give you an idea of what the pages look like.

Hi Kylie,

I'm not sure why you are having printing difficulties. Sometimes I can offer advice, but in this situation, I would suggest that you contact TpT technical support. I do apologize for the inconvenience. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

Absolutely! That is what I do. A Composition notebook with 100 pages works great!

Hi Nicole, do you have a table of contents for this grammar notebook? My school ordered this for me to use and I wasn't sure if you were aware there isn't a table of contents for this notebook. Thank you.
July 9, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Nicole Shelby
Nicole Shelby  (TpT Seller)
Yes, I didn't include a table of contents because most people use the reading and language together. This file is a continuation of the reading notebook. If you need one, you can email me at nicoleshelby@hotmail.com.

Hi Nicole, Is there any chance you will have a First Grade Reading Interactive Notebook in the near future? The product looks great and I think it would be a perfect addition to our Reader's Workshop curriculum. Thanks, Linda

Hi Shelby,
I just downloaded this product. I used the second grade version last year and I am moving to third grade this year, so I have to have another. When I downloaded it and tried to save it, it said to enter the owner's password. Do you know what this might be? Thanks,

There is no password needed to save the file. Based on what you have described, I am guessing that you are on a Mac. To save the file to your computer, just make sure that you open it in Adobe Reader and not preview. This will correct your problem. If you need directions for how to do this, the link below is a blog post with step by step instructions.

Hi Nicole,
I have been browsing your resources and I am in love with your interactive notebooks. I am teaching an ELD course next year and I'm trying to do my curriculum mapping before school starts. Do your notebooks last all year, a semester, a quarter? Just wondering so I can plan for each day and try to get a head start! Thank you!

Hi Britteny,

The notebook is something that we work on most of the year. We complete the notebook page when I teach the concept and then the kids use the notebooks as a guide for the rest of the year. I guess how quickly you finish the notebooks, will depend on how quickly you introduce/teach each standard. I teach new standards all year, so the notebook is something we work on all year. I guess it would vary from teacher to teacher, but I can't imagine that you would teach all of the standards in a semester or a quarter.

I hope this helps!

Thanks,
Nicole

Hi,

These look great! Any chance that you'll be marking the standards on the organizers? I would really find that helpful!

Also, do you use them in any particular order? Do you follow the order that they're in? Just curious.
Thanks for a great product!

Hi Esther,

I have this on my to-do list and was planning to add the standards; however, I have had several teachers that teach in states that don't use the CCSS say they appreciate the standards not being on there. So, I am kind of torn. I haven't gotten to it on my list yet, so I haven't decided yet.

I do not use them in any particular order. In fact, I use the organizers over and over again because they can be used with multiple texts.

Thanks for your suggestion.

Are the "flip flaps" pages included in the "5th grade interactive reading notebook" or do they need to be purchased separately?

No, the flip flaps are not included in the 5th grade notebook. It is a separate file.

Hi Nicole,

I purchased (and loved) your Reading Interactive Notebook. Do you think I could get by with using one composition notebook for both the Reading and Language materials? (I would use the front half of the notebook for Reading and the back side as the "front" of the Language section. I hope this makes sense.)

Thank you for your time and patience!
