Note Taking for Grades K-5
In the past teaching note-taking skills was reserved for middle school and up.   However, with research now an integral part of the curriculum for all grades levels, it is essential to teach students how to take notes from a very early age.  These resources offer tips and ideas for young note-takers.   For INFOhio resources, you may need a user name and password.
