A little about why we love to share our resources with other amazing teachers like you:
We fell in love with teaching through Interactive Notebooks many years ago. Through researching best practices, learning from other Gurus, a little trial and error, a tweak here and there, we designed a formula that we have used in our own classrooms for many years.
Interactive Notebooks are truly the best way to get to know your students. Through Interactive Notebooks, you really know your students’ strengths and areas of improvements. Interactive Notebooks build students relationships, serve as an amazing assessment tool and are a great way for students to interact with their learning!
