Tips and Trick for Interactive Notebooks

Every day I get emails and comments asking me about Tips and Tricks to get started on Interactive Notebooks. After looking through some of my past posts I decided to pull the TOP 4 Interactive Notebook Tips and Tricks Posts that I have written over the past two years.

All About Interactive Notebooks– This is actually a PAGE within my blog that contains a lot of the links to blog posts, videos and more for you to check out. I have updated it a bit as well to include some of the more recent things that I have done and plan to keep updating it.

Left Side versus Right Side– This post is a highly popular post as I talk about why I chose to FLIP the standard Left Side/Right Side in my interactive notebooks. I know that not everyone does it this way but it sure makes sense to me!

All About INBs Webinar– While the webinar was only a few weeks ago, the views have been through the roof! I’m seriously so happy with all that I was able to fit into 2 hours for you and can’t wait until the next webinar!

Setting Up Routines with INBs– Creating routines while using Interactive Notebooks is part of what makes things run smoothly in any classroom. This includes not only your schedules for your class periods but also how the flow is set up for materials and supplies. Definitely worth a read before you begin your school year.

What tips and tricks have you started to use in your classroom that have helped you to incorporate Interactive Notebooks?

  1. I’ve been using interactive notesbooks since 2003 – my very first year of teaching! I’m a social studies teacher and I start off the year on day 2 or 3 talking about how important the ISN is to our class. When I teach 6th grade I put a spiral (from last year) in a decorated box and play the 2001: A Space Odyssey theme. As you can see I really act it out. You have to sell it. If you believe it’s important… students will too!!
    I think that teachers can learn a lot from others. Don’t limit your spiral knowledge to one content area. Find out what LA, reading, and science teachers are doing with the ISN. I mean I’m here… learning from a math teacher! Shhhh… don’t tell my social studies peeps.
    Keep up the awesome work! YOU ROCK

  2. I haven’t ever used INBs before and currently planning to implement in my second grade classroom this school year. Is it too much to keep a 3-ring binder and add pages for each subject as we go (math, ELA, science, social studies). I don’t want to overwhelm myself or students, but I feel like all the foldables, etc. we complete are always hard to keep up with over the course of the school year. Any and all advice is appreciated.
