Students will be engaged in learning like never before. With this interactive notebook students relate to lessons because they are rigorous and relevant to their age. Entice students with lessons about Flappy Bird, Instagram, and so much more.

This interactive notebook is ready for implementation. It is organized with the Common Core Teacher in mind. ☺

How are your interactive notebooks different from others?

"Simply put, my interactive notebooks are technology driven and student or “user” friendly. This interactive notebook is completely different than anything on TPT, and anywhere else. Many of my lessons are based on Apps students use daily such as Instagram, Snapchat, and Pinterest. I also took their interest and created fun foldables like how to plot your dragon, and songs with similes. We live in a technology driven society, and our students become more computer literate every year. Why not take that concept, and turn it into something usable in today’s classroom?"

The Georgia DOE liked this INB idea so much, they chose to feature it in 2014’s ELA Summer Academy Sessions for Teachers.

Teacher Comments from the classes:

"The case of literacy was strong and interesting."

"Teachers are hungry for this type of learning for their students!"

"Perfect foundation of research."


"Excellent way of getting students to become critical thinkers!"

"I know students LOVE this teacher."

"Interactive Notebooks engage students from all intelligences, and ignite their desire to develop higher order thinking skills. Kinesthetic learning is in the heart of my classroom, and hopefully yours as well. My students learn to problem solve from day one, and that is essential to student achievement."

I hope you enjoy! If you have any questions, please email me at kaysemorris@gmail.com.
