Happy Friday! Is anyone else nearing the end of their school year? We only have 1 week left!
Today, I wanted to share with you a couple of organizational supplies that I tried out this year and am loving!
First up, I use task cards a lot...I mean all the time! In fact, I printed out a ton of task cards for test prep this year. And as luck would have it, the laminator decided this was a good time to take a vacation. So here I sat with a stack of task cards printed on card stock with no place to go. I remembered seeing a pin from Minds in Bloom about using photo albums to store cards. On a mission to find the cheapest photo albums, I found myself at a local dollar store. I picked up all the clear plastic photo albums they had. They were only $1! I took out the front cover and then loaded them with task cards. Perfect solution for my lamination dilemna!
I had the kids working in pairs so they shared a photo album with one
another. It worked perfectly. No more missing task cards, no more
crumpled or bent task cards! And the kids thought it was fun! Go figure!
Task cards shown are from Teaching with a Mountain View and Rachel Lynette.
On a trip to Office Depot that same weekend I came across these plastic envelopes (again just $1!). I immediately grabbed them and knew they were perfect for my Spoons games. These are also perfect for any game or center activity that requires small pieces. No more plastic bags for me!
I would love to hear how you organize task cards or other pesky game pieces.
