Product Description
Excited to try doodle notes but need a product that will fit inside your interactive notebooks? Then Doodle Note Brochures are perfect for you!

Research shows that students who sketch, color, or doodle while listening to instruction tend to have better recall. These Doodle Note Brochures combine coloring, note taking, examples, and creative visual triggers to help students remember mathematical concepts.

One concept students continue to struggle with when it comes to fractions is being able to accurately compare fractions and mixed numbers and put them in order. Students commonly want to make a determination simply by looking at the fraction or by creating rules such as “the one with the bigger denominator must be bigger”. These notes reinforce that in order to compare and order fractions, you can’t compare apples to oranges, you must have a common denominator.

I simply have my students pick up their page on their way into class. After bell work they can fold and begin coloring the front of their brochure. My only requirements are that students must listen, they must take all applicable notes, and they must stop coloring/doodling when I am finished teaching. They are welcome to finish coloring and decorating after their classwork is complete or at home/in their free time.

I typically give students a few extra problems to complete that they work out on the right side of their notebooks.

Project the template onto your board, screen using a projector or Elmo, or use powerpoint or your Smart Board software. I cut and paste into ActivInspire and write directly on my smartboard.
