Quick Pages for Interactive Notebooks are simply 2D pages that match the information from each lesson in the Interactive Notebook for Middle Grade Geography. They come in two versions: student use templates and student/teacher pre-filled templates (aka answer keys).
I created this resource after experiencing a particularly difficult year with using interactive notebooks in the classroom. We’ve all been there and sometimes we just need to think outside the box for students who have unique needs.
Here’s more information about how this resource can solve some of your biggest problems.
I get it. . And at times, you just need to move faster than interactive notebooks allow. Sometimes you just don’t have the time or desire to cut and glue but you and your students really like notebooking. For whatever reason, you might find it necessary to get information into the interactive notebook without a full-blown interactive notebook lesson. These Quick Notes offer the perfect solution for an interactive notebook lesson that won’t break the clock. Since the templates are all 2D, the student has only to simply fill in the missing information for each page. You can have them copy the information right off of the pre-filled template, provide the information yourself, or use my instructional companion PowerPoints. And for the ultimate quick lesson, simply provide students with copies of the pre-filled templates.
Absent students are still one of my biggest pet peeves Accommodating for absent students can be one of the biggest pains with interactive notebooks. Well, no more! These templates are designed so that they can be used in conjunction with the Interactive Notebook lessons. The notes are the nearly identical and the graphics are similar. So, if most of your students have the interactive notebook lesson in their notebooks, it’s perfectly fine if a few absent students have the Quick Pages templates. They will all have the same exact information. Hand those absent students a blank template that they can fill in or provide them with the pre-filled template to glue and go!
The reality of teaching is that many students require stronger accommodations than the notebooks themselves provide. We’ve all had students who struggle with note taking, students who are English language learners, that occasional slow mover, or students with disabilities such as dysgraphia or fine motor skill delays who specifically struggle with interactive notebooks. Now, you’ve got two new options! While the rest of the class does the regular interactive notebook page, these students can use the 2D template. All they have to do is fill in the notes. This takes the pressure off of them needing keep up with the entire cut, color, and glue procedures. Have a student with a more severe need? Simply give him the pre-filled template to copy or use and and allow him/her to color. Student’s still have the same information in the notebook and are better able to participate in the lesson.
