Interactively Math!

Well a MUCH better week this week and a long weekend! Whoohoooo!

Here are some of my math interactive notes, I love how math is coming together this year. I never would have thought it, but I think it is becoming my strength!

Keep an eye out for a few interactive notes bundles (hopefully will get to them this weekend, but my TO DO list is always more than I CAN DO)

ENJOY!

Your journals look great. Thanks for sharing your pictures. I really love the idea of using an M cutout for LCM.

How do you get the drawing so neat? Is there a template or are you gluing in a printable? Looks awesome and would love it if you'd share more of your expertise...
Thanks!

The drawings are mostly mine...I am a little crafty and always doodled in my notebooks, that's why I love interactive notebooks. The only things that are printables (and I simply found them on google searches) are the base ten block stuff. As things get less hectic maybe I can get some packets and such put together, even scan some of my drawings or something :)

wow, great job! your notes are neat and simple for students to keep up with. Do the students bring colored pens as their supplies? I would prefer them to use pencil in math but I love the use of different colors to highlight specific processes. Thanks for sharing.

Love these! We already use interactive notebooks at my school, but I will definitely be adding these notepages to our math notebooks next year! Thanks for sharing!

I am new to your website and am absolute awe!! I have been out of the classroom for a few years, and am currently looking for teaching position and all of these ideas are awesome! I love the interactive math notebooks. Could you explain more about them? Do the kids have their own colored pens? Do you project your notes on a Smartboard or projector for the kids to follow along?

Thanks so much!

Sorry it has taken me awhile to reply to your comment, yes I project my notes on the board with a document camera...as I do them, the kiddos follow along in their own journals. In math they only use pencil, I use markers because they tend to show up better with the document camera then pencil. For Science and SS they use pencils, then can use colored pencils for drawing, underlining and such. Colored pencils are better! Mostly because they already have them. I hope this helps a little...let me know if you have any other questions

These notes are fantastic. I have 2 questions for further clarification:
1) For Factor Rainbows, how do you fit in the odd factor when you are factoring square numbers?
2) How do you use these notes interactively? How much is provided to the students before you begin? Thanks.

I have used interactive notebooks for a few years now and I'm wondering how you include vocabulary in your INB? In the past, I have included vocab as we went (along with a word wall), but am wanting the students to keep their vocab altogether. I'm thinking at the front of their notebooks. What have you tried? Thanks so much!

Yvette said...

Hi! I love these notes that you created!! I am a first year teacher in fifth grade and was wondering if you could explain how exactly you use these notebooks interactively? Do you just no he student one piece at a time, you explain, hey listen and copy?? And do you have a vocabulary page??
Thank you!

Oh my goodness!!! We started homeschooling this year and have been having a difficult time making our lessons in math more than dry, boring "fact fact fact"... The way you write out these lessons with a combination of concise instruction but an artistic flare and clarity is Amazing!! I will definitely be emulating your style!!! Thank you so much for sharing :)
