First I showed them my INB to spark their interest (see below). I explained what each number represented in my life (great getting to know you activity too). I also explained why each picture was on the notebook as well. All I did was search Google for number images and copy and paste to a word document. When I couldn't find a number I used Word Art on Word to create the number. Then I just taped them on my notebook (contact paper would work really well).
Here is the result!
16: My favorite number.
1987: The year I graduated
6: The month I was born
14: The amount of years I am married
66: I am 66 inches tall
20: The day of the month I was married
2000: The year my daughter was born
Then I added some other pictures that I liked.
The back is also covered too!
After my presentation they were so excited to personalize their notebooks too! I handed out the assignment below to my students.
