If you missed my early interactive notebook post in July, please click here: Interactive Notebooks - left or right?! I decided to add a video to illustrate this a little better, however, I will still write a few things here that I forgot to talk about in the video and thought I had addressed in the earlier post (scroll past the video).
Here is an example of the half-sheet Word document I spoke of in the video (and from the pictures shown above). I am able to print 1 page per 2 students. I will usually use the paper cutter in the workroom to prep these while I am waiting on the copy machine to finish. I paper cut several copies at a time.
I also failed to mention another strategy that I've seen to color code each period is the use of duck tape. A teacher at my school does this with her classes. You can also be creative and fun with the duck tape you select (see photos). FYI - the pictures at Office Max/Depot were taken in July and the deals may not be current.
Okay, I don't think I left anything out. If I did, I'll make sure to send an update through my Facebook page. There still may be great deals on notebooks in case your students have to buy them (my school requires a comp book for all classes). As mentioned earlier, these pictures were taken at the end of July and the deals on the composition books may not be in place now. Many of these stores will sometimes begin selling the notebooks cheap or in bundles after school starts for most districts (e.g. 5 spiral notebooks for $4).
As always, thank you for taking time out of your day to stop on by. Have a great rest of your day and an excellent week! :)
