Frequently Asked Questions

Why are there three levels of digital notebooks?

Our classrooms are filled with students that have different learning needs. There are three levels of digital notebooks so you can choose the notebook that best meets the individual needs of each student in your class. The notebooks all have a similar theme so all students are working on the same topic at the same time. The notebooks are set up so that Level A is aligned with the Grade 1 common core standards, Level B with the Grade 2 common core standards, and Level C with the Grade 3 common core standards. However, as not all our students require their current grade level programming, please check out the activities in all three notebooks.

What do the colored boxes on the teaching plan mean?

The colored boxes mean there are no activities for that particular skill assigned on that day. Students practice some of the writing activities on a daily basis while other activities are completed once a week.

Students complete journal writing prompts, vocabulary word activities, and inquiry questions each day. There is one phonics, language, and writing activity included for each week. These activities are introduced on different days throughout the week and students can work on them throughout the week.

Background Information:

When COVID arrived and school went online I resolved to find a way to teach writing to kids online. I brainstormed what kids needed to achieve their writing goals and through trial and error figured out how to support students to achieve these goals using digital writing activities.

As not all the students in our classrooms learn the same way or have the same learning needs, I wanted to provide options so teachers could provide their students with the activities they need to become better writers . As a result I created three different digital notebooks for each theme of digital writing activities.

My goal in creating the digital writing activities is to make the lives of teachers easier. I want teachers to be able to focus their attention on their students rather than spending time trying to find the “perfect” digital resource to use in their next writing lesson.

I hope you find the digital writing activities useful in your classroom!
