Here’s what you will love the most -  this note set is NO PREP!  All answer keys are included and no additional materials are needed.  You’ll also find that you’ll have more time to work through the concepts with your students as they will spend less time copying notes and more time mastering the content.  The notes will also call their attention to key concepts that they should commit to memory. 


Here are some guidelines for how to use this set: 

  • This resource can be successfully implemented using binders, folders or notebooks
  • Warm Up Slips can be used at the beginning of the lesson to activate prior knowledge or you can use them to guide students through a new discovery. 
  • Vocabulary Practice - use these to establish foundation concepts at the outset of the lesson or as reinforcement after the notes portion
  • Guided Notes - these sets are a comprehensive presentation of the subject matter, and progressively build from basic concepts to complete mastery.  Students will follow along through a structured framework and retain the notes for reference and review.  
  • Independent Practice Problems -use these to reinforce understanding and provide a chance for your students to build skills and confidence
  • Exit Slips - can be used to allow students to demonstrate mastery of the subject matter at the close of a lesson and prepare for future topics
  • Assessment - use this to benchmark your students comprehension and supplement if necessary 

Guided notes are the foundation of my classroom. Here’s why:

  • Guided notes keep all students actively engaged in class. Students follow along and fill in missing words and numbers and answer questions. They allow students to focus on problem solving rather than using their working memory to write down everything they hear the teacher say. 
  • Students create their own reference guide to help them remember and internalize what they learned in class. They can easily refer back to what they learned in previous classes to help them with spiral review, homework, studying for assessments and most importantly building on prior knowledge to learn new concepts. 
  • It helps students organize information and understand what is important. Middle school students are often new to the expectation of notetaking and guided notes are a perfect way to introduce this practice and perfect a lifelong skill. The blanks can be used as cues to help students decipher what is expected of them- they can tell if a longer definition should be recorded or a smaller blank means they should write an important vocabulary word or number. 
  • They relieve the stress that many students feel when expected to accurately copy diagrams, figures and equations off the board. Having them right on their notes page allows them to focus on problem solving and less about accurately copying complex notes off the board. 
  • Guided notes are especially beneficial for students with special education needs and English Language Learners and can easily be adapted to accommodate specific needs.
