Here’s what my covers and spines look like (the ELA cover is identical except it says ELA instead of math):
I put the dividers in first and once I started printing I could place each page inside a sheet protector. I opted to only use dividers for each strand (Operations and Algebraic Thinking, Numbers and Operations in Base Ten, Measurement and Data, and Geometry). Behind each divider, the assessments are organized by standard. You can only imagine that by doing this, my binder soon looked like this:
So, what is inside that pretty little binder? I’ll show you! Several months ago I got my hands on these math gems:
The reason I love this one is that each standard comes with helpful teaching notes.
This math pack comes with three assessments (yes, three) for each standard. I can use these for pre-assessments, re-teaching/practice, and final assessments. Denise also made assessments for ELA. The only difference is that the ELA assessments only have one per standard. I’m hoping Denise will eventually add more assessments like she did with the math. Fingers crossed 🙂 You can find that product here.
This is just one of the projects I have been working on this summer. I’m linking up with Tara over at 4th Grade Frolics for the Monday Made-It linky. I hope I’ll have some pictures to share with you of some of my other projects next week.
