Interactive Notebook Startup Packet

Filed under: Interactive Math Notebooks — KymInKorea @ 3:40 am

One of the problems I had when I was working with the Interactive Math Notebooks was when new students arrived to my class.  Of course I told them to purchase a notebook, but I never had the time to sit down with them to help them set it up.  Then I got this wonderful idea of streamling the process as much as possible.  So I created all the pages I want them to start off with (the non-instruction pages), and I typed them up with the page number that they need to go on.  And here it is.



  1. I am planning on doing interactive math notebooks next year and I am SO excited to try it out. You said in this entry that you had some pages typed up. Would you mind sharing what you use with the kids? Also any other input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  3. After viewing your example of Interactive Math Notebooks I am hooked. I can’t wait to use them. Please share the forms that you created. Thanks!

  4. I am a Junior High teacher who will be teaching Math for 6-7-8. I like the idea of an interactive notebook. Would you be willing to share your start up? Any other ideas that have worked would be great. Thank You.

  5. We are planning on using interactive notebooks this year. I will be using them in my Algebra I classes. Are you sharing the startup packet that you had them start off with? Thanks, tonnia Carr

  6. Thank you for your willingness to share such valuable material. I learned about ISN this summer at CAMT. This information will help to make for a more successful endeavor this year!

  7. In your files (the group responsibility file), you reference CPS/time keeper. What does CPS stand for?

    • CPS stands for Classroom Performance System. It is e-instruction’s response pad system. Each person has an assigned number and the response pads (clickers) are at the front of the class. So when we need to use the system, the designated CPS person gets their group members’ response pad.
