Making Our Lessons Come Alive: Interactive Notebooks
Help me give my students one Apple iPad along with paper and colored pencils for interactive notebooks to help our lessons become more engaging in the hopes bridging the gap between standards, stories and real world concepts.
At my Title 1 school in Philadelphia, our daily affirmation is the mantra that drives our day. With many of my students coming from challenging backgrounds, it is important for us to have a personal stake in our future because it is bright.
"If it is to be, it is up to me.
I can be anything I want to be." My class of 30 fourth graders is striving to become better readers, writers, learners, and critical thinkers through hands-on and technology-driven literacy and math activities.
We are an inner city school with some resources but not nearing enough. As I use my last few vacation days to prepare for a successful school year I found something interesting, interactive notebooks.
Interactive notebooks allow students to be creative, independent thinkers, and writers.
Students need more hands on activities to make learning fun and meaningful. The different kinds of paper will allow students to make foldables, graphic organizers as well as keep notes neat and complete group assignments. The iPad will allow students to research people, places we read about. This project can enrich their experience with printed words.
