Social Studies Interactive Notebooks that make teaching and learning FUN!
Do you teach US History to 3rd, 4th, or 5th graders?
Do you have a hard time getting the history standards covered?
Is planning taking you FOR-ever?
The struggle is real! Over the years, I have heard so many teachers say they struggle with those two things. Some even say they don't like teaching American History.
I was in the same place for about the first decade of my teaching career. It was taking me hours upon hours to prepare and have everything together when it came to U.S. history. After all, elementary teachers don't have a degree in history. :-) I knew something had to change.
Lucky me though that I am married to a US History teacher who holds advanced degrees in the subject area, PLUS I have advanced degrees in elementary education and reading. It's a winning combination.
I needed a better way. I was taking too much time away from my family, staying late at school, working on Sunday nights, and it was all because textbooks weren't working, and I needed to pull from here and there to get things covered.
Over the next decade of my career, I envisioned a better way to teach American History. I knew I could create something for me that would also help other teachers. I decided to dive in and find a solution to my problem.
I spent nearly three years writing and creating my line of interactive social studies notebooks. Today, thousands of teachers are using them from all over the country. They have shared with me that they love them and their students do too. Teachers say they enjoy teaching history using my passages.

What our Happy Customers Say
"Worth every penny! I have everything printed and ready for easy implementation! I know my kids are going to love learning with this resource, thanks!"
"Love, love, love this! The passages are challenging, but not overwhelming. They are interesting and state all the important information I want students to know about historical events. I can easily fit a reading with the activities into my daily schedule, and the students love breaking out of the old book and binder paper writing routine. They get so excited when it's social studies time!"
"Why did I wait to buy this?!?! :) I am a new 5th grade social studies teacher and this bundle is amazing! My students enjoy the great passages to use and the creative interactive notebook sheets. This just made my teaching experience so much easier! Thank you!"
AAMAZING!!!!! I love this resource and have restructured my Social Studies for the entire year around this bundle. I have added my own resources in for lessons but love the framework and passages to use. The lessons are so engaging and the students (even in 5th grade) loved the interactive aspect!!!
God bless you for creating such an AMAZING resource!
Absolute lifesaver, I'm in a county with no SS resources. Thanks goodness for this! So pleased, and my students are really engaged with all the fun reading passages too! Thanks.
This bundle is AMAZING! I have been teaching for 15 years, but this is my first year to teach Social Studies. I was overwhelmed trying to organize my units. This bundle has helped me to focus and begin my plans. I am now very excited about teaching SS. I know my students are going to love all the resources. Thank you!!
I cannot even tell you how excited (and relieved!) I am to have found this fantabulous SS/US History bundle! I teach self-contained 3rd-5th grade special education. Based on my students' varied academic levels and behavioral needs, I was in great need of a unit/bundle that would be high interest, share appropriate standards-based content but also be presented in smaller increments. This. Is. PERFECT. Well worth the investment for sure. xo
I love this entire bundle!! It was hard to "bite the bullet" but I'm so glad I did. I can't wait to implement these engaging, shorter, and more manageable social studies passages and super fun flippables into my social studies lessons. Thanks for an awesome pack!
