Second Grade Nest: Reading Responses Interactive Notebook

Reading Responses Interactive Notebook

I began making these flip pages for my class's small group Guided Reading time.
I decided I should go ahead and make it into a product!



Here are the steps....

1. Cut out pieces. 
Many kiddos will try to cut off the top rectangle of their flipper pieces, but ask them to keep that attached. My kiddos used a lot of tape in the first week of making these....

2. Glue into notebook. 
We use 3 ring binders as our Learning Logs.
They only glue the top rectangle that doesn't have writing on it (unless it says "Chapter ___ for the chapter books pieces). Those empty rectangles are there to show where to glue. 

(Except this piece... it always gets glued down without any flaps.)

3. Once all the pieces are glued in, you can start filling it out! 

Included in my pack, you will find pages for everyday children's books, sight word readers, and chapter books.
Here are some examples from our Guided Reading program....

[For my kiddos ready for chapter books]

[For my kiddos reading picture books]

[And my darlings reading sight word readers]

  2. I think your interactive notebook pieces look great! I especially like how they can enhance guided reading! I just added this one to my wish list! :)
