Interactive Reading Notebook!

Happy almost end of summer! This is my last week of complete freedom. Next week the school opens up for teachers to begin setting up their rooms and the following week is work week. With the anticipation of a new school year, I have been thinking a lot about how I want to structure and improve my literacy block. I thought I would share the interactive notebook that my students and I use to keep track of our skills. The pictures below are from the notebook that I keep along with the students. We also will include grammar activities and notes in our notebooks, but the pictures are just of the reading portion. Enjoy!

What do you use in your room? I would love to hear what you are doing or how I can improve.
These are just some of the pages from our notebook. If you are interested in finding out more about the reading notebook, you can visit my TPT store. The complete list of the activities the notebook includes is below. 
-author's purpose
-elements of fiction
-main idea
-making predictions
-making connections
-cause and effect
-ask and answer questions
-problem and solution
-text features
-context clues
-drawing conclusions
-compare and contrast

Have a great day!
