~Have you heard of Journals or Notebooks for recording daily practice and want more information?
~Unsure of how to incorporate journals into daily classroom life?
~Sick of worksheets all over your classroom or stuffed in backpacks?
Learn how to use DAILY notebooks/journals/portfolios in your K-2 classroom!
I learned about this style of data collection when I was teaching in England, and then saw it again when I was teaching in Australia. I talked to more and more international teachers and discovered this is what the rest of the world is doing!
It will make collecting student data easier. Students can reflect on past lessons. You have "scrapbook-like" notebooks to show at conferences. You will save time and paper.
But it is a different way of thinking (scroll down to read more*)
This download includes:
-30 pages of directions and ideas (as I wish it would have been explained to me when I first started teaching in England)
-10 printables to use in notebooks
-4 picture examples
This manual concentrates mainly on Literacy and Math.......but I will upload my Science & Social Studies printables soon.
All the best,
*So..... what is it?
All independent work is recorded directly into notebooks, or if done on a worksheet, work is glued into the notebooks.
WHAT?! Read on...
My resources are all you need to PRINT & GO.
The objective and brief directions are at the top of each page and then printables that will save you so much time and paper. These ARE NOT worksheets. These resources are graphic organizer titles, activities that children will cut/mix up/use dice with/glue/etc and ideas for you! These are designed for notebooks that are 8 1/2 x 11 journals....if yours are smaller you will need to reduce when copying to fit your books.
What I hope you will enjoy most is the DIFFERENTIATION I’ve included for you. I know that we have students that are behind, on-level or advanced. My resources are layered as much as possible (that’s why there’s so many pages in many of my packs) so that you have choices for your students. There is no reason they should all be doing the same thing when they are at different levels. Please also note the PICTURE EXAMPLES. This is a great visual to better understand how it might look in the notebooks.
