Over the holiday break, I used my brain to organize how I plan for workshop. (It felt like a huge DUH moment.) Here's how I'm keeping it all organized...
|I'm using this Carolina Pad 8-Pocket Organizational Folder to keep everything under control.|
|Spelling words and other instructional sheets go in the front left pocket. Worksheets to use in the future (but not the current week) go in the front right pocket so I can file them at school.|
|Each day of the week has it's own labeled pocket.|
|I keep worksheets in these pockets for the week - this way I don't double up or forget about certain tasks each day.|
|And the last pocket in the back (on the right) holds my planning sheets for workshop.|
|I have logs for number of the day, ideas for word work and skill practice, and the workshop schedule.|
Simple. Planned. Amazing.
Teachers: do you use workshop in your classroom (or something similar)? I'd love to hear what you do - and what tasks you have your students complete!
P.S. Does anyone use Mountain Math? I'd LOVE to purchase it...but it's just so pricey!
