Interactive Notebooks help my students to keep organized and to value their progress through the course. I use a variety of learning activities including A/V, computer activities, interactive notebooks, group talk and center activities to keep students engaged in learning. I try to make learning accessible to all of my students, no matter what their academic readiness may be. I create engaging interactive notebook activities for TPT that I have used successfully with my students.
