I’m new to interactive notebooks, we just started using one this spring with my youngest and he loves it. It’s been a fun hands on way for him to practice his letters and small words. But you know that interactive notebooks are? They are a lot work for mom. But there is a great alternative to the tradition method, digital interactive notebooks.
Digital Interactive Notebooks

Interactive notebooks can be a lot of work for parents, there is the photocopying, cutting, and some gluing. So not only time intensive but also not great for zero waste, or even for minimalist living. There is a lot of paper involved. For kindergarten, I really liked it. He loves cutting and gluing, and this was a great creative outlet for him, and give him a reason to cut, instead of just cutting a piece of paper into a million tiny pieces on my floor…
What is a Digital Interactive Notebook?
It is a interactive notebook, on your computer or device. No cutting or gluing involved, no mess, nor all the time spent photocopying and cutting.
You can use them on either PowerPoint, or Google Slides. Using Google Slides gives you a lot more flexibility in where you are learning and your device options.
Where to Find Digital Interactive Notebooks?
Teachers Pay Teachers is a great place to find them. I am working on some myself for my little guy, but they are no where ready for him, or anyone else for that matter. But I think they are a great resource for digital learning and wanted to share them with you.
You can see some examples of what I mean on Teachers Pay Teachers.
