I just HAD to do something about it to make it more manageable!
Here is what I did:
reading genre signs for the week.
A spelling test form. (I hope to get it approved to switch over to at least some sentence dictation sentences soon!)
This is made by unit and not weekly. The Word Study lessons want the students to draw the headings in each day in their blank notebooks but we are limited on time. I made the headings and correct amount of columns for the entire unit. I also will staple a baggie to keep their sort cards on the back page. (This is similar to the homework folder baggies.)
The Journey's curriculum comes with paper cards but the cards are giant and the font is tiny! So I made my own that work better for sorting. The students cut these apart and add it to the baggie in their unit sort book baggie each week.
It also has a chart in the ML to use so I also just made one and keep it in a thick page protector and write on it with a dry erase marker.
This is just 1 week of items each unit has 5 weeks. My binders are busting at their seams but at least EVERYTHING is finally organized and in one place! :) I just need to go through and write "original" on everything with a yellow marker so that I don't misplace them! :)
Now that unit 2 is complete- I can go back to finishing my science matter unit! :)
Have a great night! :)
