**INTERACTIVE NOTEBOOKS**

Students will be building notebooks like their own personal textbook.

**The Math notebook** will have definitions, examples of problems, classwork and homework.

**The Science notebook** has vocabulary, key points and notes from each lesson.

Notebooks will be used to **review** **material for testing**.

If your **child is absent**, they will need to copy missed notebook entries during morning homeroom. It is their responsibility to make up work they have missed.

Notebook/participation grades are given every week or two.

Notebook grades are based on completion of all required entries/work, neatness and organization, table of contents updated, and accuracy. **Please be patient, scoring notebooks takes time. I usually enter 3-5 grades when notebooks are scored. Remember, I am scoring 102 notebooks- each week!!**
