ReadyGEN Kindergarten Vocabulary Interactive Notebook Prompts {FREE}

When I first began teaching ReadyGEN to kindergarten students, I tried to come up with an engaging way to keep the vocabulary momentum going, and I invented a vocabulary journal.  I did this mainly because my students really love anything that is tucked inside of their very own journal or notebook.  It's somehow ever better if I cut the composition notebook in half and make it a mini-notebook, which is exactly what I did for our vocabulary notebooks.  Whatever works, right?!?  The outcome was phenomenal.  My students enjoyed vocabulary so much when conducted this way, I felt the need to share it with other ReadyGEN focused Kindergarten teachers!
I whipped up quarter size vocabulary words to fit inside of composition notebooks that have been cut in half, but they can also be used in full size notebooks! (I cut my notebooks at home on my band saw. I find the fine blade on that type of saw keeps the pages from fraying. Table saws tend to “chew up” the notebooks.  Tutorial on cutting notebooks coming soon...pinky promise!)
