PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

(Figurative Language Interactive Notebook; Fiction Interactive Notebook, Nonfiction Interactive Notebook; Poetry Interactive Notebook))

Now all FOUR of my popular "Less Mess" reading/ELA interactive notebooks are available in one bundle at a greatly discounted rate!

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.

★ You can view my entire "Less Mess" Interactive Notebook Activities line by clicking the links at the bottom.

Each reading skill has a blank note page (with sample). This allows you to either use the definitions from the samples or use your own. Each skill also has practice and creative pages to accompany the learning.

Please check out the PREVIEW to see a large variety of sample pages as well as options for use in your classroom.
