This notebook includes everything you need to get your ELA notebooks going in the right direction. When I say mini I mean that it doesn't have an interactive activity for each standard. It's a large resource. I have used this in past years in my class and I have been adding things all summer to make it even better! It's in an easy to follow order with the Common Core standards aligned to the vocabulary. Each part of the Common Core (Literature, Informational Text, Foundational Skills, Writing, Speaking and Listening, and Language) is broken down to make your life more simplified. Each CC section includes a cut-out version of each "I Can" statement which makes up a good part of this document. This is a 101 page document that provides you with ways to guide your journals daily/weekly. Each time you teach a lesson this journal can be used for note taking and creating new journal entries. Students can easily cut and paste into their "I can" statements into their journals. Each day you cover an "I can" statement use this interactive tool to guide students into a better understanding of the core content and improve their writing year long. Students take vocabulary notes that connect to the "I Can" statement for that day. Then wrap it up by completing 1 of the 11 interactive activities. My favorite, 21 extra foldables to use to make your journals more interactive! If that isn't enough, turn to the back of the kit and look at the sheet that gives you 10 more ways to make your journals interactive and beneficial. The ELA Common Core vocabulary is included in a teacher friendly guide to make taking notes a snap.
