Interactive Notebooks in Second Grade

Hi everyone!  It's been a week or so since I've has been busy in 2nd grade!  I just wanted to show you really quick what all we have been up to.  It seems like we have an interactive notebook for every subject these days!  We are super interactive in my room!  Here are some pictures of some of what we have been doing!

I have found that if you are new at doing interactive notebooks (I have used it some, but not fully like I am this year) that it is easy to start out with word sorts and reading strategies.  So, if you are new at this, you can get started pretty easily!  I hope these help you!

Oh, and be sure to follow me on Pinterest!  I'll be pinning lots of other great ideas on there!

Friendship: Cynthia Rylant, Teacher's Cauldron, and Yvonne Crawford

How are you all doing out there?  We finally got our 3rd teacher and have cut our grade level size into a third for each of us! Hallelujah!  Let's hope this gets us on the right path so that we can roll along in the right direction!

I had planned to get started with this last week but with switching kids, finishing up testing, etc., I just decided to wait.  So, now...I know what I will be doing for the next 2 weeks.  Good ole <I can teach this with my eyes closed> Henry and Mudge!  You can always rely on Cynthia Rylant's books in a pinch!  So, I bet you are wondering why I want to rely on an old standard?

I am going to be using this freebie by another good friend, Jen of The Teacher's Cauldron.  It is already prepped and ready to go from last week!

After being departmentalized for the last few years and only teaching literacy/science/social studies, I am going back to a self-contained setting and will be teaching all subjects!  So, I am having to get back into the math mode.  

My friend Lyndsey had this on her blog and it made me cackle!  THIS is exactly how I feel!  

I know that I am going to be using an interactive notebook that was created by my friend Yvonne Crawford. She is so awesome.  Her work amazes me because I expect her to be more of a literacy person because she can speak a kajillion as she keeps rolling this math out, I just sit in awe!

My friend, Missy Squirrels, introduced me to this book.  Does anyone use this?  Should I get it to help with my math lessons and centers?  Please let me know if you have any information about this!  I am trying to decide what to do!

More later!
