Students love to doodle so why not encourage it?
Students doodle and color while you teach this topic.
These are similar to interactive notebooks in that they allow both sides of the brain to function at the same time therefore aiding in students' memory of the topic.
My students love to use fine-tip markers or gel pens, but anything will work.
These type of notes also help with engagement.
These are a great reference tool to refer back to. It is like students have their very own anchor chart at their seat that they get to help design!
On this there are directions & notes on how to do the topic, vocabulary, an example, practice problems, and an answer key.
