Hi! I am a stay at home mom who taught 5th grade. I loved the interactive journals we created inside my classroom. However there are not many that focus on Reading. Most focus on Math, Science or Social Studies/ History. I began this with the idea of making reading more interactive and having the student link right brain to left brain. This is a work in progress for me. I have created a few template for this journal already and used some from other teachers. Please feel free to copy, borrow or steal anything I post. We can only make each other better.

Please note that my journal is based for a 5th grade classroom. So you need to make modifications for your grade level.

You can contact me anytime at

Please enjoy!!

Mrs. Alexander

  1. I'll look forward to following your Interactive Reading Journal. Check out Aimee Buckner's Notebook Connections: Strategies for the Reader's Notebook. Also, if you know any colleagues that have gone to an Abydos conference (formerly New Jersey Writing Project in Texas), there is a group of teachers in Donna, TX that do lots of awesome Interactive Reader's Notebook work!!
