If you haven't clicked on "Notebooks" on the tab above then I would encourage you to click there first! The notebook section goes over how I implement my interactive notebooks in my class.  It has some great insight on how you can use the notebooks in your classroom!

8th Grade Math Interactive Notebook

My 8th grade math interactive notebook is over 150 pages of engaging material.  The interactive notebook is aligned to CCSS and includes everything you need to start a notebook.  This includes:

  • All About Me – This is great to use on the first day of school.  Students will fill out information about themselves and can place them on the first page of their interactive notebooks.  It is also great to place a class syllabus next to this page so that students are informed about the class and don't lose the syllabus.

  • Notebook Expectations – I want my students to know my expectations on how they will construct their interactive notebooks.  This is important for students’ to know that their notebooks will be used in my classroom daily and that it is their responsibility to take care of their notebook.

  • Grading Rubric – It is important that students are informed on how their interactive notebooks will be graded.  A grading rubric will break down categories and let students know how many points each category is worth.

  • Setting Goals – You can have students set goals many times throughout the year.  I normally have students set goals every quarter.

    Setting Goals
  • Looking Back at Goals – Students need a way to look back at goals that they set and determine if they achieved those goals.  If not, they need to question how they could have achieved those goals, and what they need to do differently next time to make sure they can obtain their goals.

  • Reflections Page – Students should be making reflections every lesson.  Students need to be able to reflect by written response, drawing a visual picture, or giving an example.

  • Table of Contents – This allows students to easily locate information in their notebook.  The interactive notebooks can get very big with lots of important information.  The table of contents will help the student’s access information that they need by looking up the concept and page number.

    Table of Contents
  • Unit Overview – This allows students to know standards, essential questions, vocabulary, and important test dates that are in the upcoming unit. It is great for students to have all of this information in the same spot and be able to know exactly what they will be learning in the next few weeks or so. I also love having students write in the dates of their pre-test and post-test so that students can not come to class and complain that they didn’t know that there was a test.

You can get my Algebra notebook starter for free!!!!  It is very similar to my 8th grade notebook starter.  This includes classroom rules, notebook expectations, grading rubric, table of contents, reflection, setting goals, and a look back at goals.  CLICK HERE to download them for free!

There are "I can..." statements every time you start a new concept.  This is great for students to write down so that they know exactly what they should be able to do by the end of the notebook activity.
