3-2-1 Review: three things you learned-- two things you thought were interesting -- one question.

3-2-1 Pyramid

I saw this done in a social studies notebook and I really liked the structure. It is called a 3-2-1 review, which I have heard of before and use when kids are watching science videos to keep them engaged (list three things you learned, two things you thought were interesting, and one question you had). In this example of a 3-2-1 review for the notebook students drew a pyramid. On the bottom part of the pyramid the students had to list three facts. The second part of the pyramid they had to…

This is a good way to help students see the main idea of a nonfiction piece.  It also helps them summarize a story so they can use this paper to reference the work later without searching the entire document again.  Finally, it is a good way to show them that all good work has main points that are supported by details.

The new core is heavy on writing. So this is a little non-fiction summary organizer I put together for my kiddos. I did it on one page and then after using with my firsties I realized some of them can't write all that small so I re-made it for a 2 pager that I print front to back. It seemed to work much better. My higher kids can use the 1 pager.

4 things 2 are freebies!

I just spent the last 2 hours trying to find a really great idea I saw a few days ago on someone's blog. It is so frustrating not being able to find something. I've got to get my blog ideas more organized! 1. Anywho, while looking through countless blogs for the past few hours I read about the Pinterest permission thingy. You can learn all about it out here on Laura's blog. You need to read the fine print. Basically, you need permission to pin things from my blog. So I'm giving you…

Any new ones will be newer pictures taken recently. Here are some more pictures of various activities that we have included in our interactive notebooks so far…
