I created a post-it note poster to use for students to understand the concept of a new word. I put our headings packet on www.teacherspayteachers.com. Since this is my first addition to TpT, it is free. I hope to add other things to TpT focusing on using interactive notebooks in language arts. There are many things out there for science, social studies, and math; but have not found many notebook ready/worthy ideas for language arts/reading.
Watch this blog for future updates about using interactive notebooks in language arts classes. Since discovering the concept online a couple of years ago, it has become my best friend. I love how organized the notebook keeps students and they all of their resources at their fingertips. This is especially important as we move to Common Core for language arts and Essential Standards for social studies (I teach in NC) without the slightest hint of getting any new resources. Since this is my first year EVER teaching social studies, the interactive notebook is a great place to resources for students to refer throughout the year. I think I should invest some of my money in glue stick stock...since we use it almost daily!
