Better late than never. Mrs. Patton over at Mrs. Patton's Patch is having an Organization Linky Party and because I like organization so much I am going to participate.
Here are pictures of how I organize my daily materials.
I keep all my activities, word sorts, picture cards, & worksheets (anything I need for my lesson) in this beautiful box. Well, it is not exactly beautiful, but I am working on it.
Inside you will find 5 hanging folders labeled Monday - Friday.
Each one of the hanging folders has 5 color folders inside. Those folders are assigned to a class by color. I also printed a label with the class name & time they meet. That way when subs are in my room they don't have to think about my color coding scheme too much. The color coding is more for myself & my students.
You can color code by subject, that is what I did when I taught Gen Ed, and still have everything at your finger tips daily.
When I am done with a folder I just flip it to the back so it is out of my way & I know what is next. Same thing with the hanging folders. As I make my copies & sort them I just put them into the corresponding folder. The day of I just pull out the folder & everything I need for that lesson is there.
