OK, I know! My strange addictions!!!
But I have decided I could be doing worse - spending my money on worse and harming my body! RIGHT???
I LURV opening a new notebook with a fresh pack of newly sharpened pencils!
I decided this year to do interactive notebooks for Reading/ELA and another one for Math. We only had one composition notebook on the school supply list so I picked up 24 RED composition notebooks for READING. I figure I could say, "Get out your RED READING notebook," and it would be easier than saying Reading notebook and half of them asking, "Which one?"!!! I will let them use the one they brought from home for Math!
I did the same thing for folders. I like for them to have paper in a $.15 folder. So I bought 24 Red folders for their Reading folder. They will use this for Word Work and ELA centers.
I have been searching for FREE task cards for centers. I have a lot of file folder games, but have really liked the task cards and scoots I have seen on Pinterest and TPT. So that has been one project I have been working on. I have saved them in a folder and plan on printing and laminating during preplanning.
Near my Small group reading table, I have a bin that I will change out the skill-games every so often. I have also been working on a SET rotation for SGR.
I really think that will work better for me and the kiddos!
