I've been really liking the interactive notebooks with my Language Arts students.  I discovered the IN idea through great blogs.  I already have ideas how I may want to do it differently for next year, but overall it is a great way to "remind" students of what I taught in the lesson.  In our school, we differentiate for ELA, and this year I have the Level 1 class.  The visual reminder of what we discussed in a lesson has been really helpful with this group.  They always have something to refer back to when trying something on their own for the first time.  I'm slowly making additional pages for their notebooks as I teach each skill.  Eventually (hopefully soon) I plan to put all the pages I have created so far on my TpT site.  Here is an example using the text structure lesson.
