Can Your Notebook Fly?

YES! Two teachers at Rocky Ridge Elementary are using Virtual Notebooks.  Check out this resource that the teachers are using to enhance student learning.

  • 4th Grade Daniel Schaeffel- "We have been using an interactive virtual notebook in place of a paper and pencil notebook. So far they have a section that is reflections about the task of the day, and a section where the students answer essential questions, take notes, insert drawings, create data tables, and insert graphs. I plan to also add a vocabulary section. This is working out great! I have access to their notebooks any time, and so do they. I do not have a stack of notebooks to flip through, there is no need to copy materials, and the students enjoy the lack of paper and pencil. I can also give quick feedback and comments through Google Sheets. They can also give each other feedback and comments, since everyone's notebooks are in a shared folder. Example
  • 5th Grade Mike Herring-  My students are now keeping a Digital Math Notebook in Google Drive for all of their daily classwork as well as weekly Problem Solving. There is also a Goals setting tab. Example
