I use this this PowerPoint presentation on the first day of school to impress upon my students the importance of keeping a notebook for my class and bringing it with them every time they come to class. I've used it for English, Drawing and Computer Art classes but it can be adapted for any subject.
If you require students to keep a notebook specifically for your class, you might find this presentation useful!
The great thing about PowerPoints is they are easy to edit and build on. Feel free to use this set of slides any way you want!
Every slide is editable so you can adjust it to suit the specific needs of your class.
There's even three slides that I use when it's time for a quiz and I want to remind the students as they walk in the door that they will be able to use the notes on the quiz.
