Interactive Notebooks

I've started using interactive notebooks in my classroom and I love them! I started using Angela Olson's Lucky Little Learners math notebooks last year with my second graders, about halfway through the year. I decided that this year I had to scoop up all of her units and start them from the beginning! Here are some activities that we have worked on so far with our addition strategies unit.

I just love them and would recommend them over and over again. In fact, I HAVE recommended them over and over again. I'm always posting the fun stuff we are doing on my Instagram page @stuckeyinsecond

Here is the Teachers Pay Teachers story for the math interactive notebooks I use. She even has some free samples, so check those out! Visit her blog here:
This year, I've also decided to do Interactive notebooks for reading! I'm super excited! I purchased Nicole Shelby's second grade set and I'm loving it so far. Also, I have been finding other activities that I might normally make into an anchor chart (and still will for the classroom) but I can print it and have them add it to their notebooks for an instant resource at their fingertips! Here are the few things we have done in our reading notebooks so far! 
Nicole's awesome set printed and in a binder for me to pull and copy anytime I need it! 

Here are some of Nicole's other pages that I can't wait to do!!! 

Here is Nicole Shelby's 2nd grade Reading Journal (She also has language ones and different grade levels!)

Keep watching my blog for future activities each week as we work on them in the classroom! I have some fun plans scheduled for this week! Happy Sunday!
