For years, I have had a desire to do interactive notebooks with my math students. I want them to take the place of the textbooks that we no longer receive. Interactive notebooks allow students to not only organize their notes but it allows for creativity as well. I always start the year off with a collection of ideas and methods of how great I imagine my classes’ notebooks to be. But by Christmas break that fire has fizzled down to nonexistent embers. The first issue has been students not being able to provide their own spiral notebook, three ring binder, or composition book. I have had to purchase them myself and compromise on what I wanted students to use. The second issue was students not being able to keep up with the pace I wanted them to, in order to get their pages done. They would misplace pieces. I have had to make numerous copies. And I have also had to break down and do some of their pages for them. When students begin to start having to play catch up they get upset, lose interest, and shut down on the process. I would like to start from day one implementing the notebook. In order to do that, I would need to have all the material available for students on the very first day of school so that we all can start at the same time, work at the same pace, and have completed notes pages ready with lessons taught. Interactive notebooks will become part of my rituals, routines, and procedures. And my students will see just how important they are to their success as a middle school math expert.
