I finally finished unpacking in my new room! Can I get a WOOHOO?!?!?!
The room is far from ready, but I am super excited that there are no more totes or boxes begging for my attention. I spent some time up there finishing them off and organizing my reading materials. I had finally found a system that worked for me wonderfully last year, and I wanted to have it all ready to go for this year.
As you're reading this, I'm probably having a scan of some kind on my gall bladder. I think the threat of surgery has motivated me to get busy... I will say--as I write this--I feel better than I have since the "attack" and am hoping they will still be able to see a problem. The battle between being hungry and the fear of eating is no fun!
Sorry if that was too much information...
Anyway, take a look at what I accomplished today!
|Close up of what you see when you walk up to my crate. I keep the current math unit here too (maybe another post)...|
|I also have my Amazing and Spelling Words posters for my focus wall. If you use 2nd Grade Reading Street, you might want to check these (and much more) out in our store.|
|This is what the previous teacher left me...fluency passages.|
|Sometimes I will put a folder within a hanging folder. |
Here is Unit 1, Week 5.
|Inside I have a "Digraphs" folder because it is our phonics skill for the week and I have a lot of resources to practice (see below).|
|Kagan Cooperative Learning materials that I have made. I believe these came out of a K-2 Language Arts book. Anyway, on the left is Showdown. On the right in the envelope are the digraphs students can put on the pink sheet to make words.|
|Our grammar skill for that week is exclamations and questions. This is another Showdown activity I use so it is just loose in the hanging folder.|
That is how I organize my reading materials...works for me! I hope it will give you some ideas too. I've linked up with:
Head on over and share your organizational ideas too!
Have a blessed day!
P.S. Stay tuned for something big this week! I'll give you a hint. It starts with "F!" ;-)
