Half Way There Sale!

My holiday has been filled with food, family, and working on a new interactive notebook. These babies really take a lot of time to churn out, so be patient with me.

My father -in-law, who is a great guy, has been diagnosed with lymphoma.
He is a Vietnam Vet. My husband took him to the doc this morning for a cat scan, and his (my father-in-law's) facebook comment was, "I got this."

How great is that? Brave...I commend him. Pray for his well-being.

The good news is--my Industrialization and Imperialism Interactive Notebook will be ready in time for the big sale on the 31st and the 1st. And at 20% off! All of my products will be on sale both days, right along with other fantastic secondary teacher's products:

Secondary teachers were ready to bring in 2015 with this halfway there sale! Read all about my newest interactive notebook (at that time) and get some other ideas for things you might want to add to your cart!

Here's a sample from my latest interactive notebook:

Marx and Smith Primary Source Analysis

Working on this one (and all of them) has been a long journey. They are time consuming, but completely worth it. My students' morale has increased right along with their scores. Seriously, their scores were great this year, and I had parents tell me that they plan to keep these notebooks for good. Ah, don't we all keep a memory box? There's something about being able to say, "Flip to page such and such," and there it is in a history class, right until the end.

Now, if I can just get through Unit 12....

Speaking of the sale (from Dec. 31-Jan 1), I'm, not the only one involved. There are other fantastic teachers with amazing products. Here are a couple of free samples below:

    1. Thanks, Addie. You're resources are amazing and a pleasure to use and share.


  2. You are taking on a great challenge with complete units of IN activities! I've attacked them for years, and it is very time consuming! And you are absolutely right that students keeping notebooks and organizing everything within them does make such an impact for all levels of students! Thanks for creating and providing these time-saving resources for teachers to help all students!

    1. I wonder if I've lost my mind sometimes, but then I see the benefits of the IN in my classes, and I keep chugging ahead!

      But you know about that....your resources are incredibly extensive!
