I am LOVING S.S. notebooking!!!
We have officially finished our first social studies unit of the year, civics. The student notebooks turned out wonderful. As we begin our first science unit, simple machines, I feel like I have learned a lot about notebooking and how to keep the students organized. I am excited to keep at it and for all of us to better at documenting our learning through notebooking. Below are pictures of our first unit.

Hi! I think we share a similar outlook on notebooking! I learned about it while teaching in England and Australia, but don't find many American teachers that really understand it. Please check out my blog, as I'm trying to share ideas for notebooking I've seen or created. Although mine are more geared toward K-2, it's easy to adapt to other grades. I will bookmark your blog so I can get ideas from you too!

the notebooks look great!
I would LOVE a copy of this!!! I really like your vocabulary page! 🙂
I love, love, love this! It's like a Thoughtful Log for content subjects. Hmm…. you maybe have me convinced!
Do you have those printables? We just finished our first unit. I like your format!
I have been doing Science notebooking for 3 years now and I LOVE it! I need to try it for Social Studies too!!
