Interactive Notebook Linky Party Week #1

Hello!  Welcome to my very first Linky Party!  I love a good party, don't you?

That's Right!  I'm starting my own Linky Party for Interactive Notebooks!  I love them and want to share my ideas with you.  I also want to learn more ideas from others.  I know many of you have experience using Interactive Notebooks and have super fabulous ideas that you are just dying to share with me, Right?  Well, I hope you are because I am ready to learn from YOU!!

To start this party off let's share what we use for Interactive Notebooks.  Do you use Composition Notebooks, Spiral Notebooks, 3-Prong Folders, or 3-Ring Binders?  

Diane, from Fifth in the Middle, asked this question on her Facebook page back in April or May...
"Do you prefer spirals or comp books for ISN's?" 

My Answer:
 Well,  I prefer spirals because there is less cutting involved!  Many prefer comps because spirals can become twisted, and catch on everything.  I have the perfect solution!  DUCT TAPE!!  Yep!  See pictures below!  

I posted about this earlier.  You can read more about using duct tape here!

There are so many fabulous Interactive Notebook ideas floating around that we need a place to share and celebrate.  I believe that it is time for a party!  Since this is my very first Linky Party I have a few rules.  Mostly because I'm a newbie and need to build my following.  Here's how you can help.

1.  Grab my new INB Party Button and link up with a fabulous interactive notebook idea!  

2.  Notify your own followers through a tweet, Facebook, or pin that you are linking up and they should join the party too!

3.  Promise to visit and comment on at least two other link ups!  Of course you may visit more...

4.  Follow me on at least two of my social media sites: Bloglovin', Google, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, or Twitter!  Goodness!  Wouldn't it be crazy cool if you followed me on all of them?  Just a thought...


  1. I am excited about this Linky Party!!! I am moving to 4th grade and we are going to do INBs and I am super excited. I just know the kids are going to love them!!!

  2. Hi Susan! I am your latest follower on Bloglovin'! I prefer spiral notebooks simply for cost. They go on sale for 10 cents each in the summer! The composition ones are way more expensive! What a great idea for a linky party!!

  3. I am so excited to have found your blog! Your idea about duct taping the spirals is awesome! Might rethink having mine use comps. Do you still have trouble with kids ripping out pages? I would think then you'd have all the frillies stuck to the inside of the duct tape... Thank you for sharing!

  4. I think your duct tape is the perfect solution! Why didn't I think of that before????? THANK YOU!

  5. Glad I found your blog through a comment on another blog I follow. Now following you. Love the duct tape idea on the spirals!
