I have been getting some questions on how I am organizing my color around the room.
I had to think of a way that was easy and fast since this is a bundle (TNB) that I use everyday of every week. I also need to make it simple enough so that no matter who got it ready for the following day it was an easy peasy task to get done.
I stared out by using two one inch binders and sleeve protectors. I created a binder for the ABC color the room (TNB) and one for Math color the room.
In the math color the room binder I have the Numbers (TNB), Colors (TNB) and Shapes (TNB) all together. Each section has a small sticky note taped to the sleeve protect to make a tab.
Next I found a plastic container (shoe box size) that would hold 4X6 inch cards.
I cut small sticky notes in half to create the tabs for each 4X6 inch card and taping the tabs with packing tape. I placed the cards in the same order as the binders so that it would make things easer to find.
The cards fit nicely behind each tab. I keep my container of cards and binders on shelf together in a cabinet next to the teacher prep workstation.
Highlights of what our week looked like.
We started our week off with a book reading of I Have a Dream and a group discussion of what our dreams would be today.
During work time children created their I have a Dream sign for the march. The children did a fabulous job coming up with their dreams for our world.
This one made me laugh. "For New World not to be rude."
Each week we do a group writing activity where we work on letter formation and guided drawings. Here is a peek at what their writing is looking like.
In the clay studio we worked on a community pots. Where children collaborated together to create a unique classroom pot that we will use to make a nature arrangement.
