I didn't plan on posting this week but I am SUPER excited for what I accomplished today! On Pinterest I found the following idea at That's So Second Grade, and knew I needed to use it to organize my 4th grade CCS files.
|That's So Second Grade Files|
I cleaned out my filing cabinet last week, I tossed plans from my first year of teaching (nine years ago!) and several transparencies! The picture below is just half of the stuff I kept, teachers are just organized hoarders :)
I typed up my labels which you can find here for FREE in my TpT store. On my labels I added a "cliff note"of sort so I could quickly find and sort my resources. Plus memorizing ALL those letters and numbers will take me forever and by the time I did memorize them it will change.
|*Note you will need Avery Labels 8593. I found mine at Wal-mart.|
I started with a stack of papers and began sorting them into each strand. I had already created folders for the Big Idea, but sorted them into each individual standard (for example 4.NF.4 a).
I laid out a few folders and using my "cliff notes" I was able to quickly sort my resources.
Finally, nice and neat files :) I also created files for Language Arts, Writing, Reading Literature, Reading Informational, Science, and Social Studies.
It's a bit late but I am linking up with Fun in Room 4B and Ladybug's Teacher Files Organization Linky Party...
...and it's Monday so I am also linking up with 4th Grade Frolics.
