So I was planning to share this yesterday, but I got swept up in my classroom projects, a meeting that ran longer than planned, and my soccer game. I know Tara isn’t doing her Monday Made-It series weekly now that summer is almost finished. However, I thought I’d keep up in the spirit of things and share with you what I have been making.
Besides beefing up my book units this summer, I have wanted to create some more independent math stations for my classroom. I already have a lot of great dice games and started thinking about better utilizing my math manipulatives. My newest project will utilize the packs of dominoes I have. I think I have the project finished, but I would love another set of eyes just to make sure. It’s targeted for first and second graders. If you have a few moments to look it over for errors or confusion I would be so grateful. Just leave me a comment with a way to contact you.
Last spring I bought an Erin Condren planner during the big Teacher Appreciation sale. While it has a great section for a grade book, I keep so many checklists for things I wasn’t sure I’d have enough pages. So, I made a separate grade book:
I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before, but I LOVE organizing with binders. What makes binders even more fun? Having some fabulous dividers!
Here’s a close-up of some of my divider labels:
Now all I need is a class list so I can start making my grade book pages to put behind each section.
“If I don’t open every door, to see what lies within, I’ll miss an opportunity that might not come again. I stay busy day and night, through winter, fall, and spring. I crush my fear of missing out by doing EVERYTHING.”
Seraphina wants to do it all, and she does. Between soccer, karate, ballet, and French club, she isn’t going to miss out on anything! Or is she?
