Interactive reading notebooks are a great way to make students responsible for their learning. Students put them together and then use them as a reference tool throughout the year!
This reading interactive notebook is easy to use as there are photos of all the pages completed. It also is a paper saver as the lesson is taught with half a sheet of paper and it is practiced with a half sheet as well. It looks great colored or left as black and white.
I like to initially teach the lesson and glue the poster on one side of the page (color if you have time). Then we do the practice page. Each page has a different activity to keep student interest.
Many teachers use interactive notebooks for whole class learning or as a center. An answer key is included.
