I have always been a big believer in taking notes and using those notes to study for upcoming tests and quizzes. I was the student who color coordinated her notes and made very detailed outlines. However, as a teacher I have a hard time transferring that knowledge to my students who are in 4th grade. This may be a little young to start taking notes, but I believe that it is a good skill for all kids to have. The better and more proficient they become the better learners and test takers they will become. I looked into Google Keep and explored that a little bit. It is way too advanced for my fourth graders. I also explored Evernote….same thing. I then took it upon myself to google best ways of notetaking for kids and found that the use of interactive notebooks is a fun and engaging way to do this. There are a lot of pre-made forms on teachers pay teachers, as well as the internet. I think the next math unit I teach I am going to try to explore this note taking strategy in hopes to have my students more engaged as well as to give them something to take home and study from.
