Interactive Math Notebook

It seems that everywhere I look, teachers are posting or pinning ideas for Interactive Notebooks. While I have found so many wonderful ideas and teacher-made products to implement a language arts interactive notebook, I really wasn't able to find anything that I thought would meet my needs for teaching the common core math standards. So, I decided to do what I always do when I can't find what I'm looking for...

I created my own!

I created my Interactive Math Notebook based on the 4th grade common core math standards. This particular edition covers the standards related to "Number & Operation in Base Ten". 

Take a peek at the cover and some of the pages...

These notebook pages can be used to introduce or wrap-up each standard. I plan on using them at the end of lesson or unit to reinforce what students have learned, and so that they will have a guide to look back to when these standards are reviewed throughout the year. 

For each concept or skill, I have provided materials for a double-page spread. The first page includes the title, standards, "I can..." statement, and explanations, examples, tips, and/or illustrations related to the concept or skill.

The second page gives students the opportunity to demonstrate their learning, with additional sample problems or tasks for them to practice.

Some of the standards include multiple pages, covering different strategies. For instance, for multiplication, students will learn the traditional algorithm, partial products, and lattice multiplication.

  1. These look AMAZING! You have been very busy~

  2. Love this! Sad I'm not teaching 4th this year :(

  3. This is amazing. This will make the notebook organized.

  4. I love your 4th grade interactive math notebook. Would you consider creating one based on 3rd grade common core standards? Thanks for your amazing contributions to help our children succeed.

    1. Thanks so much! I definitely plan on making one for third grade. Unfortunately, I can't be sure when it will be done. I am still working on completing pages for the rest of the 4th grade standards. I hope to start 3rd grade soon, but can't be sure that it will be done before school starts again. Keep checking back!

  5. I love your ideas!! I even have a teacher toolbox on my desk (that I want to update later this week.) I love my box!! :)

    The interactive notebook is awesome! Will you model how to paste each page, or will you be making it for them?

    I love the interactive notebook for a supplemental tool. But I'm just a little confused as to how it works. Can you please explain it more in-depth?

    This is my 1st time teaching 4th grade, and I've been looking for ideas as to how I can help the students learn :)


  6. Any chance you will be making these for 2nd grade? I've taught third grade and fourth grade before and used your interactive journals. I've been moved to 2nd and I'm struggling without them!

    1. It's been in the works for some time! Sadly, I haven't been able to find the time to work on it lately. Wish I had better news.
