Interactive notebooks are widely used in classroom. If you were to walk in mine today, you would see interactive notebooks for reading, math, and science. The purpose behind these notebooks is to keep students organized and assist in synthesizing lessons taught. It’s common to see vocabulary, notes, graphic organizers, and reflections. Overall, interactive notebooks is one of many important components to promote student learning!
I created this journal to meet my district expectations of a student and teacher side of the journal. Each district is different and many have specific expectations. Mine is no exception to the rule. I currently teach off the gradual release. One page from this file can be stretched over several lessons. It’s not intended to complete both teacher and student portions in one day. Expect the teacher side to be several lessons before student side is addressed.
*NOTE due to a request, I included pages throughout the file so that the follower could have examples of how to set up the journal pages. The table of contents (below) states there are two pages for each topic. One is a preview the second is the journal pages. PLEASE checkout my freebie sample!
