Using interactive notebooks in the classroom is a trend that has gained popularity over the past couple of years. When coupled with foldables, interactive notebooks become great learning tools for students. If you perform a Google search for interactive notebooks, a wide array of websites and images will appear. If you’re new to interactive notebooking, it can certainly be a challenge to get started.
For my post today, I’m sharing how I like to do interactive notebooking, from the very first days of school. I consider the students’ math notebooks to be their own student-created textbook. With that in mind, I only include items that have enough information to allow students to use their notebooks as reference tools. This means that each component must contain information that will support student learning outside of class.
