WARNING: DISASTER AREA AHEAD
Here is a view of the sad corner of my dining room:
Over the past several months I have been creating book studies and units to go with what I'm doing in class.
After doing a unit, I would set it aside and print out the next.
Lessons, printables, laminated activities...everywhere!
I wanted everything in labeled binders, so it is easy to store and easy to find again when I need it next.
Since Monday turned out to be a SNOW DAY, I had some unexpected extra time on my hands to get some organizing done!
I bought these binders at Dollarama. I like how they look, and that they don't have a space for a cover page. What?! I know...I like keeping it looking clean and uniform.
I printed labels for the sides of the binders, so with one quick glance I know exactly what's inside.
Added tabs, to make things simple to find.
Cover pages in page protectors for durability.
AND THE TIP YOU NEED TO SEE:
These clear document holders zip up so you can't lose anything! I found them at Dollarama.
I have inserted them at the end of each unit/book study in the binder.
Each document holder contains ALL of the pieces needed for that unit or book study, including:
pocket chart cards
work station activities
Now when I grab a binder, I have literally everything I need.
I am happy to have completed 5 binders so far...
Here's a little preview of what else I've been working on over the past two weeks:
12 ready-to-go math activities...just add conversation hearts!
...and graphing, estimation, tallies, dice games...and MORE!
