Interactive notebooks are a great tool for practicing new skills and assessing mastered skills! They are a collection of notes and hands-on activities all bundled into one notebook. They can be done whole-group, as a math center or in guided math groups. They can even be used as a performance based assessment. The best part- students LOVE making them and don't even realize they are working!
This product contains 11 different activities that focus on the money skills. Most of the activities have multiple printables to make differentiation simple and make the product versatile enough for 1st-3rd graders.
All activities have simple straight cuts that won't waste class time! I kept the format similar from one activity to the next. Once you teach students how to complete the first couple of activities, they will be able to complete all of them!
