It’s so important for students to be interested in what they are learning in school. It’s not always easy and of course everyone has their favorite subjects. I remember when I was little, I loved math, but I wasn’t so into Language Arts class. It wasn’t my teacher’s fault, the materials were just boring. So, my number one purpose is to making learning fun. I love to really get into my curriculum and think what would make a student enjoy learning this skill? What would make it enjoyable for a teacher to teach this skill? Interactive notebooks are a great way to achieve these goals. There are many interactive notebooks out there today, so how can you tell which is the best?

**Make sure the interactive notebook is truly interactive. ** Some notebooks are just filled with activities that are really just a worksheet in disguise. So, make sure to look for ones that have the students interactive with the printables and can be used in the future to review.

Here are a few examples of some fun interactive reading notebook pages.

**Make sure the interactive Notebook that is unique. ** Since there are so many interactive notebooks out there today, lots of people buy the same graphics and the activities are the same. I love to draw my own and make every page unique!

**Make sure the interactive notebook is teaching what you need it to teach.** If you are teaching reading, or math or writing, make sure all of the concepts that you need to cover are included. For reading, I love to include passages to make the whole teaching process easier for teachers and for students.
