PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

{Back to School Interactive Notebook; Back to School Interactive Activities}

My “Less Mess” Interactive Notebook Activities allow for two simple steps: cut around the border and glue it in. That’s it! They are perfect for teachers who may have their students for just one short period per day. However, if you are a big fan of the “folds and flaps” that usually come with interactive notebooks, this resource can be a nice supplement to add to what you already have or to use on days when you may have less time.

The pages are designed so that they will work in spiral notebooks, composition books, three hole binders, or as individual activity pages if you are not yet fully ready to commit to interactive notebooks in your classroom.

Getting back into a routine at the start of the school year is not easy for some kids, especially when their minds might still be on summer break.

Why not give them an opportunity to tell you (and their classmates) all about their summer adventures while using reading/ELA skills, writing, and art? This activity is a great way to ease back into school after a long vacation, and it helps you learn a lot about your new students as well.

Each page features reading/writing skill practice using the student's own summer break as the topic. You can use just a few sheets or all of them according to your preference. These pages would also make a great back to school activity in a literacy center. Samples of completed pages are also included.

When the packets are finished, they would be great for sharing with partners, small groups, or as a whole class.

These pages could be easily adapted for various grade levels depending upon your requirements. For upper grades, you might require students to include additional information. These organizers are a perfect starting point for some great personal narratives!

Pages included are:

1. Setting
2. Characters, Character Traits & Evidence
3. Plot- Important Events/ Chronological Order
4. Visualization/ Illustration
5. Writing About Your Visualization
6. Conflict
7. Compare/Contrast- Venn Diagram
8. Setting Goals

PLEASE NOTE: The activities in this resource match the activities in my other resource entitled A Few Pages From My Life Story: Summer Break Activity. The only difference is that this resource has been redesigned to fit the "Less Mess" format.
