First I wanted to share with you how I reorganized my file cabinets! They are totally empty now and all of my printables are in binders!!! I saw this on pinterest first. Hers were SO SO cute! When I saw this I was hooked and had to do it. My files are a MESS! I can get very unorganized sometimes! LOL
They are all in folders but there are things in there I wouldn't dare use in my classroom these days. I needed to get rid of a lot of stuff and this gave me a good reason to do it! I bought huge binders, sheet protectors, and some ABC dividers and got to work cleaning out files! I threw away all of the things I never use and kept only one copy of the good ones. There were so many things I haven't used in years. I put everything in order by subject in ABC order. I still need to make my cute dividers like the ones in the picture :)
I put all of the sheets for that subject in one sheet protector, I added more sheet protectors for that subject if they wouldn't fit.
I used computer labels to write the subjects on the sheet protectors. I made some simple binder covers for each subject and put them all in and I was done!!! This has transformed my lesson planning because now I am way more organized! I can grab that subject of sheets depending on what we are working on and throw it in my bag to take home. These three binders sit on my shelf so now one of my file cabinets is empty! Now I have to tackle the rest of the stuff in the other one! Whew!
SO basically I replaced a whole file cabinet with 3 neat binders!! LOVE IT! I marked all of my master copies with a highlighter so I won't lose them.
Now to my morning work! I have been working on this pack for awhile and just finished it. I completed 9 weeks worth so there are 3 more packs to follow. I really needed to revamp my morning work. We use spiral review for our homework and I really wanted to incorporate this method into my morning work. It really helps the kids to constantly practice these skills daily and independently.
The printables are broken down by week and the skills for that week are repetitive for that week so that the kids can do it on their own. There is D.O.L, Language Arts, Math, Handwriting, and Problem Solving included on every page. There is even a challenge section included for the fast finishers. We all have those kiddos that finish in 2 seconds! I was sure to add a lot of writing to it because handwriting is hard to squeeze in sometimes. So with this pack they can practice it formally through morning work also.
Some of the topics covered are:
real or imaginary
asking and telling sentences
days of the week
months of the year
