I am trying very hard to move away from using as many worksheets as I can. I am looking for ideas and information about using interactive notebooks and foldables. I teach second grade. Thank you so much in advance for sharing your knowledge with me.

I teach sixth, and have used interactive notebooks for six years now - I love them. This is a teacher resource page I put together with links, rubrics I've used, and FAQ about how I do notebooks. There isn't any one way - it is an infinitely tweakable strategy.

For foldables, I highly recommend the Dinah Zike books.

Are you familiar with them? I LOVE their ideas! Any of the projects from their books would be great for 2nd graders. The Bag Ladies are Karen Simmons and Cindy Guinn. They have OODLES of ideas for projects using brown paper bags, baggies, CDs and cases, etc. TOO cute!

Thank you for sharing your website, I found it helpful.

I looked at the Dinah Zike website and was able to find one book that seemed good for primary.

Thanks again!

I teach 7th, but I use a lot of foldables in my ISNs. My most common ones are those that are flat, rather than the pyramids, etc. I have used three-flap foldables, vocabulary flap foldables, mini books, etc.

There is a new book out of foldables that can go flat into the notebook - instructions to make the pyramids, cubes, etc so that they can lay flat and "pop up". It's cute.

Reproducible graphics are supplied in the book, as well as instructions on how to create these modified Foldables using regular paper. You’ll be amazed at the hundreds of full-color examples found throughout the book! This book contains 129 pages. Jan 2009--CD not yet available; we apologize for the inconvenience.
