I am SO excited to show you my 8th grade math interactive notebook. I created this notebook a little over a year ago and have been adding material since then. It is set up to the Common Core State Standards (8.NS, 8.EE, 8.F, 8.G, and 8.SP). There is so much to this notebook. You can have students use a standard size notebook, composition notebook, or a 3-ring binder. I decided to try the 3-ring binder with my students and I got to say that it worked out a lot nicer than an actual notebook. I had students write their name and period on a thin sheet of paper, and I placed this paper on the side of the binder.

This made it extremely easy for my students to leave their notebooks in my bookcase and find it quickly whenever needed. However, it is up to you how you want students to construct the interactive notebook.

I have provided a cover page and intro pages (expectations, grading, cheat sheet, table of contents, and etc.). The pictures below show my 7th grade cheat sheet and table of contents.

The pictures below show the 8th grade intro pages.

I have also provided a page where students will set goals and a page where students will write if they accomplished those goals. At my school, we discuss how important it is for students to learn how to set goals. Hence, I like to use this page multiple times throughout the year. The page is set up so that you can have students set goals each quarter.

You will notice that I have included a "reflection" page. I love to use this reflection page on the left side of the notebook. I use the right side of the notebook as a direct instruction / activity. I just make copies of the reflection page anytime that I want students to reflect upon what they learned.

Overall, you will LOVE my interactive notebook. Please let me know if you have any questions! I also have a 6th grade, 7th grade, and Algebra interactive notebook.

You can purchase my interactive notebook by either going to my STORE or going to my Teachers Pay Teachers.

Hi. I am so looking forward to trying and using MIN (Math Interactive Notebooks). What I've seen thus far on your blog looks great. I was wondering if your interactive notebooks, 8th grade and Algebra, are editable? Also are their overlapping pages in the sets as far as the unit materials?

ReplyDeleteThanks,

Tracey

Hi Tracey! Unfortunately my interactive notebooks aren't editable. However, if there is ever something in my notebooks that you would like me to change, I can always edit them. There are no overlapping pages between the 8th grade notebook and the Algebra notebook. However, some of the concepts are the same but they do not have the same pages. Let me know if you're interested and I can send you a preview of the 8th grade notebook vs the Algebra notebook. Thanks so much for your interest in my curriculum and please let me know if you have any other questions! :)

ReplyDeleteI would love to see a preview of both contents. Thanks.

ReplyDeleteHi Tracey! Email me at jen_marie_18@hotmail.com so that I can send you the previews. Thanks so much!

DeleteWhat program did you use to create your interactive notebook pages? They look great!

ReplyDeleteHi! I actually only use Microsoft Word. Everyone is always surprised when I tell them that it is Microsoft Word because they don't know how much Word can do! :) Thanks so much for your kind words!
