Editable Interactive Writing Notebook

I have come to love interactive notebooks and I use them every chance that I get! I teach ESOL so I teach grades K, 1, 2, and 3. I am always needing really good interactive activities for my students and when I can’t find them, I just make them! Writing is a tough cookie to crack so this interactive notebook has worked beautifully with my students.

I love it because it serves as a handy reference guide for them to use during class or to reference at home. All of the pages include vocabulary flaps so the kids can learn and use the vocabulary and practice that skill with an interactive activity. There are different activities for each page.

This notebook is common core aligned to 1st and 2nd grade and is EDITABLE! Yup, you can change the words, descriptions or whatever you need in order to meet the needs of your students. I often do this to diffrentiate depending on my students ability levels.

This bundle comes in a zip file with 4 folders. There is a folder of all of the full color pictures of every activity with detailed instructions. There is a powerpoint file so that you can edit the templates, there is the interactive notebook, and I included extra bonus printables and full color posters!
