This Interactive Reading Informational Text Notebook for Grades 2-3 is the latest in my series of interactive notebook products for reading and ELA.

This interactive reading notebook is *truly* interactive with templates that fold and flip for the students to interact with. This product is NOT simply pages and pages of definitions and descriptions for students to glue into their notebooks.

Each of the 14 lessons in this notebook includes a color photo of the finished product, teacher’s notes (what to write in or on the template), complete teacher’s step-by-step lesson plan and assembly instructions, and student black lines. You will find that all of the information needed to begin teaching these concepts is in here. This is NOT simply a product full of templates and organizers that require hours of research and prep time - I have included all of that information for you! I have also included a version of each template that is blank so you can adapt when necessary. All templates are digitally editable with an extra file included.


Here are the lessons included:

Lesson 1: Fiction vs. Nonfiction
Lesson 2: Main Idea & Supporting Details
Lesson 3: Key Points & Supporting Reasons
Lesson 4: Questioning for Key Details
Lesson 5: Author's Purpose
Lesson 6: Informational Text Structures Overview
Lesson 7: Description
Lesson 8: Compare & Contrast
Lesson 9: Order & Sequence
Lesson 10: Problem & Solution
Lesson 11: Cause & Effect
Lesson 12: Sequence (Chronological Events)
Lesson 13: Informational Text Features
Lesson 14: Point of View (Author vs. Reader)

I’ve included the Common Core Alignment for Reading Informational Text for grades 2-3. Please take a look at the Common Core Alignment in the preview file – as well as the Table of Contents – to be sure this product covers the concepts you are looking for before purchasing it.

If you teach first grade or fourth grade and are wondering if this product might work for your classroom, please view the Table of Contents and Common Core Alignment in the preview file for a list of topics and skills covered.


This product download is a ZIP file that will extract a folder that contains 2 files. The first file is the entire Interactive Reading Informational Text Notebook in a PDF format that is ready to print and use. The second file is a PowerPoint file that includes all of the blank templates from each lesson/activity that you can edit digitally to suit your own classroom needs. If you need help opening a zip file, please try to drag the file to your desktop before unzipping. You can also try to refer to this article:
