Starting my ISN…Trial and Error

My “rest day” has become my work day! My body has really needed a day of rest from running….really anything that requires movement has become a pain today. Yikes, I didn’t realize how out of shape I had become!

Through my “rest” I’ve been doing a lot of work on my ISN. It’s not 100% how I’m going to have students do their notes, but I’m going to adapt what I’ve put together to make it work for them. I’ve gotten a pretty good start on my ISN so I thought I’d share what I’ve been working on today.  There are still a few kinks to work out, but over all I’m loving my ISN!

Smart Notebook pages to display and interact with the content during class:


Trial and error doesn’t really works when creating ISN Pages because the pages are bound together. I created my table of contents {see above} on my computer first to make sure it worked how I wanted. After I created my ISN page in the book, I realized that I didn’t like it! What do you do if you mess up a page???!! Luckily, the TOC page I pasted on top covered most of the hand written page. Here is my mess:


I created a second ISN for my Algebra Class and corrected the mistake. Here is the correct page:

I really like this second TOC foldable page. I’d love to give credit to where I found it, but I can’t remember where I got the printable from. It is awesome! Love it! 🙂

I’m going to share some of the other pages I created in another post. Until then, make today and every day ridiculously amazing. 🙂


One thought on “Starting my ISN…Trial and Error

  1. I usually plan pages in a blank notebook as a “dry run”. I have ones left over from when students transferred out that only have a few pages in them. I do this a lot when I need to make sure a foldable will fit or I have a lot I am trying to fit in on a page and need to practice positioning before class. I use a spiral bound notebook to keep track of my ideas for pages and graphic organizers.
