As I approach 50 followers, I thought I would have my first ever linky party! (Fingers crossed that it's a success!) I'm thinking about having a giveaway when I reach 100 followers!
I was looking through a magazine yesterday when I saw an organizer for bulletin board borders, something I've been in the market for, when I thought organization!! What a great idea for a linky party! I've seen some ideas out there for various classroom storage & organization that people have come up with on their own and what a great idea to put it all in one place!
To start, I'm going to share how I organize my theme ideas. As a Pre-K teacher, Mailbox Magazines are my first resource. I always find great ideas in there to use or to adapt for the classroom. But I hate it when I find something for a theme I might do in a month and then can't find it again. Insert my binders.
I started binders with theme ideas where I can photocopy ideas I find and insert them in page protectors behind each theme. Using page protectors also lets me put any reproducibles that go with the activity behind that page and keep it all together. Right now I have 6 binders with between 6-8 themes in each one. Over the summer I'm planning to re-work some of my binders because some of them have gotten too thick!
I simply used page dividers and labels to create my tabs. I prefer tabs to be at the top rather than on the side. Also on my to-do list for the summer is to create cute page dividers for each theme.
Now it's your turn to join in on the organizational fun!! click below to link up. I can't wait to see what everyone has to share!
