I've had some good responses to my organization posts!
and my monthly tubs and centers (this one is a favorite!)...
AND, I've had a few questions about how I organize and display my Spelling Throughout the Year packs.
So, here's what I do.
First, I print up the word wall words (both spelling and sight words) and cut them out to shape.
Then I glue them to their specific color. I chose teal for sight words and yellow for spelling.
Then I run those sheets through the laminator, and cut out the words again, but just in rectangles this time.
Now here's how I organize it all.
I print up the table of content sheets and put them in front. I just like to see where the skills are so it's a quick flip in the binder.
Then I put all the weeks together. For example...here's what week 1 looks like. I put the student list page up front, and then I put all the other sheets behind it in the same sleeve.
Keeping it all together makes it super easy when it's time to copy off for the week...I just take out the plastic sleeve and head up to the office to make my copies!
I even keep the word wall cards in the same sleeve (yes, you'll need a bigger binder by the end of the year!)
It keeps going like that for the rest of the binder....
Now, how do I display them?? Well, that's really up to you and your preference...or what you have available in your class. Here are some examples of how I do it.
Both the Spelling and Sight Words in one pocket chart.
Or, you can do one set per pocket chart, since depending on which pack you have, the words can get pretty big.
OR, you can do no pocket chart and just tape or magnet them to your chalkboard!
If you're interested, I have 3 different grade levels.
