Interactive notebooks

I know this is a simple interactive notebook but this is my first one with my students this year.  They LOVED it!  Just a fun way to learn!  I used the beautiful astrobrights paper but you can use white paper and have them color it.  I just typed the title of our story, and then we just wrote details about the story.  
Want free templates?

Want to know more about interactive notebooks?

I purchased the interactive notebook bundle from my friend, Erin Cobb of I'm Lovin Lit!
