This packet of Doodle Notes is designed for the ELA classroom at the 6th grade level, but could easily be used in the 7th and 8th grades as well.
There are two copies of each slide, one is the teacher’s copy, the other is the student’s. However, the teacher version could be given to the students instead. When I am creating a notebook, I always like to make a teacher version of the notebook so I can follow along with my students. There are also a few pages that are not doodle notes necessarily, but my students refer to those pages frequently so I wanted to include those as well.
If your students are using composition notebooks, each one of the pages needs to be printed or copied at about 80% in order to fit fully in the book.
Just a few tips on interactive notebooks… I like to take clear tape and tape the very middle of the notebook, that helps them stay together better, and prevents my students from pulling at the center thread. I also duct tape the binding on the outside and this also helps them hold up better.
I also make my students use color on every page, but they need to learn to use it meaningfully. For the first few lessons of each year, I guide them through that process, so they know what meaningful color use looks like.
There are also two versions of many of the daily slides, one for a four day week and one for a five day week.
