Product Description
Reading Interactive Notebooks Literature - Literary Elements for Common Core. This Reading Interactive Notebook is the true original - over 45,000 copies sold!

After learning about interactive notebooks two summers ago, I resolved to use this technique for every concept I taught to my 6th, 7th, and 8th grade literature students. Now that I’ve used this in my classroom for over a year, I have compiled all of my reading interactive notebook lessons for teaching literary elements here.

Each of the 24 lessons includes a photo of the finished product, teacher’s notes, teacher’s instructions, and student pages (templates). You will find that all of the information needed to begin teaching these concepts is in here. This is NOT simply a product full of templates and organizers that require hours of research and prep time - I have included all of that information for you! I have also included a version of each template that is blank so you can adapt when necessary.

I’ve included the Common Core alignment for Reading Literature for grades 4-8 and included that in the preview file as well.

This is TRULY an *interactive* notebook with templates that fold and flip for the students to interact with. This product is NOT simply pages and pages of definitions and descriptions for students to glue into their notebooks.

In the preview you file, you will also find a table of contents and several sample pages.

This resource is now part of an interactive notebook bundle. Find the bundle here.

Here is what’s included:

Lesson 1: Story Vocabulary (plot, setting, complications, protagonist, antagonist)
Lesson 2: Elements of Plot and The Plot Pyramid – exposition, inciting incident, rising action, climax, falling action, resolution
Lesson 3: Internal and External Conflict
Lesson 4: Four Types of Conflict – Man vs. Self, Man vs. Man, Man vs. Nature, Man vs. Society
Lesson 5: Story Devices – flashback, foreshadowing, suspense, cliffhanger
Lesson 6: Character Traits
Lesson 7: Characterization
Lesson 8: Types of Characters – round, flat, dynamic, static, sympathetic, minor, protagonist, antagonist

**Note - This product includes the foldables from my Plot Foldables Collection as well as the foldables, definition cards, and sort cards from my Figurative Language is Reading Candy Unit.**

*UPDATE 2/15/16* I've updated this ENTIRE file with fresh new fonts and graphcis, as well as added HOW-TO VIDEOS for every 3-d template! Show the videos to your students as part of the lesson, or watch them yourself as you prepare to teach each activity.

*UPDATE* 7/16/13, 17 new pages added - see Table of Contents.
I've also added a PowerPoint file that includes ALL of the blank templates from this notebook in a format that you can edit digitally. If you are reasonably fluent in PowerPoint and know how to add text boxes and insert images, you can easily edit any template for use in your own classroom. Redownload if you've already purchased this product to get the update FREE!

*UPDATE* 12/16/13 - TEKS Alignment added to the end of the document.

This product download is a ZIP file that will extract a folder that contains 2 files. The first file is the entire Interactive Reading Literature Notebook in a PDF format that is ready to print and use. The second file is a PowerPoint file that includes all of the blank templates from each lesson/activity that you can edit digitally to suit your own classroom needs.
