Notebooking Leads To Writing Success
Notebooking is essentially journaling with an educational emphasis. Generally, it is regarded as a better learning tool than just plain old worksheets because children can individualize their learning.
Notebooking teaches students to organize their thoughts and opinions. Then, they can write out or illustrate the concepts they are learning.
If you incorporate notebooking as part of daily life, it will become natural to your students. Kids that notebook are great notetakers and excellent at summarizing concepts.
When notebooking, students will learn to:
- Organize their thoughts
- Summarize their experiences
- Make lists
- Illustrate a concept
GOING ON A TRIP? Notebook it!
Trips are excellent opportunities to give kids a creative outlet to journal their adventure into a different city or state or country!
Having a journal that guides kids to write all about their experiences is a great tool. If you incorporate other concepts it is event better.
GEOGRAPHY AND HISTORY TRAVEL NOTEBOOKING
Traveling is a prime time to get kids to journal! Whether it’s a plane ride or a road trip, there will be lots of down time. And once kids get the gusto for writing/illustrating, they won’t leave home without their travel journal.
Going to a new place makes kids naturally curious about its history, monuments and all the new things they see around them. This NOTEBOOKING UNIT can guide students in researching the area’s history and geography.
