Monday Made It!- Interactive Math Notebook

I'm back with another Monday Made it with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics!  

Last week I spent a lot of time working on math.  I teach 2 periods of ELA to my homeroom and then 3 sections of math everyday.  This year on top of adopting the Common Core we are going to be working on a new digital math program.  As I stated before, I'm still in a love/hate phase with it.  This week I focused on preparing my Interactive notebook for my kiddos.  I got a TON of ideas from Sarah at Everybody is a Genius.  I just found her blog and can I tell you how FABULOUS it is for middle and high school teachers!  Please check her out.
This week I made my interactive notebook cover.  
I am going to assign this to my students as a homework assignment on the first day I meet them.  I made the directions sheet to send home and I cut out all of the numbers that will go on the front.  I also made a rules sheet for the math notebook so my students know my expectations up front.

Thank you Ladybug's Teacher Files for the numbers!!
Please leave a comment if you use interactive notebooks!  I am just learning and I would love to hear what you do with this!!
Don't forget to link up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics and share what you made!



  1. I like this idea of representing yourself in numbers! Great idea!

  2. Thanks Lori! I really want to make an effort to infuse more literacy into my math classes. I used to do so much more of this but with the added curriculum load-- WAY more concepts to teach in math it was hard to fit In and I dropped a lot of it. Now with the Common Core we have less concepts but have to delve deeper, I think the literacy will be an important part.
    Come back soon!

  3. Such a fantastic idea to use only numbers to describe yourself!

      Come back soon!
