If you haven't noticed by now, one of my favorite parts of the day is Texas History. We teach it in fourth grade, and then they pick it up again in seventh grade. Due to this split I think it is really important for students to have a place where they can log their learning.
In the beginning of the year I try to start out INBs off on the right foot with this Start-Up Kit. The kit includes a table of contents, about me page, sentence stems, and a rubric for the INB. We usually complete these pages during the first week of school to get started on the right foot!
