If you're a Kinder Teacher, it may seem a bit overwhelming to undertake the newest rage of Interactive Notebooks with your little kiddos...All the fine motor skills needed for the detailed cutting, gluing little hills, not mountains, copying all the information when they can barely write their names. Sound familiar? No, worries! I have the perfect solution to your Kinders participating in Interactive Notebooks at THEIR level, without the mess and still experiencing the all the engaging fun!
I'm so excited about my new Kinder Math Interactive Notebooks ~ Emergent Reader Style product! Try it out with your Kinders and you'll see just how easy it is to use and fun for your students to work with. This second activity book covers the Common Core Standard K.CC.A.2, Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1).
Just what is an Emergent Reader Style ~ Interactive Notebook? It's simply a half-page sized book that contains all the interactive activities without the students cutting and gluing! And what's best of all, it's Common Core aligned, by each standard. The books are short, but contain just enough practice your Kinder can handle. It's a perfect way to introduce the whole concept of Interactive Notebooks to your students, while they're young but not quite old enough to handle the real thing. The first page contains a traceable "I Can" statement in kid-friendly Common Core language. The following pages provide your Kinders with an introduction to the concept, guided practice, and finally independent practice with the Common Core Standard. Finally on the last page, they are presented with an award for accomplishing their personal best with the concept. These are also perfect for small group work, informal assessment and/or to send home as homework!
I really think you and your students will enjoy the activities, graphics and ease of the Emergent Reader Style Interactive Notebooks. It's the same concepts, but at their level so all of them can feel successful. And did I mention without all the glue mountains and cut-in-half foldables?
