My students need spiral notebooks to maintain interactive notebooks.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our school just barely doesn't qualify for title 1 assistance. This means that our students have financial needs that our school cannot meet. When students aren't prepared, they aren't organized. When students aren't organized, they are easily discouraged from learning.
Our middle school is located in a very diverse community.
Each year I find that although the students differ in many ways, they seem to struggle with the same concepts. This year it is my goal to highlight the connection between reading and writing concepts. In the past, students have failed to see the cyclical patterns in language arts. As a result, I would like to try interactive notebooks.
My students need spiral notebooks to maintain interactive notebooks. Interactive notebooks will promote student work that can be strategically organized to highlight the similarities of the reading process and the writing process. Students will be encouraged to take Cornell notes, revisit activities and annotate their discoveries.
With common core standards stressing the benefits of inquisitive learning, interactive notebooks are the perfect solution for organization, making connections between concepts and developing new perspectives when it comes to reading and writing processes.
Without these spiral notebooks, students will continue to lack a place for their assignments and notes. When students don't have anywhere for their assignments, their papers end up in the trash along with the constructive feedback.
