The day before our mid winter break, I snapped a few pictures of my favorite interactive notebook pages from our Math Notebooks. I thought I would share these pages as a diverse look at all the different items that can go in an interactive notebook.
1. Interactive Word Problems
I love using our interactive notebooks for word problems! Word problems should and are a daily part of my instruction, so of course they need to be represented in our notebooks. These particular interactive word problems are printed two to a page. The students solve the problem on the notebook space and write their solution on the lines. Click to check these out in my store: 4th grade version and 5th grade version.
My students love foldables! We use these for computation and for word problems in addition to the interactive word problems posted above. Below are pictures from my Interactive Student Notebook for 5th Grade. These word problems focus on multiplying fractions by fractions.
3. Practice Pages
Sometimes I even zoom down (80% works perfectly with composition notebooks) a great worksheet to use in our notebooks. Something about cutting and gluing a worksheet into a notebook makes it a tad more fun. 😉 This particular page is from my Multiplying and Dividing Fractions Unit.
4. Notes/Tips/Reminders Posters
This is one of my favorites. Sometimes I give my students a completed poster to glue into their notebook. Other times I give them a partially completed poster and we fill in the rest together. This is an example from my Subtracting Mixed Numbers with Regrouping Unit.
And here is another example from my Modeling Multiplying and Dividing Fractions Resource.
Now for the freebie! As mentioned above, sometimes I like to type up quick tips posters to help the students work more efficiently. Here is an example of a poster that I made and the students completed and glued in their notebooks. This one goes over the three ways that I teach my students to make denominators the same.
Do you use Interactive Notebooks in your classroom? What do they look like?
