Monday Quick Tip




Those who have worked with me, know that I like a certain amount of organization in my classroom (well, more like A LOT). Being the Reading, Language Arts, and Social Studies teacher in a departmentalized scenario, I need to make sure that transitions happen effectively and efficiently.  Therefore, today I decided to share with you a "Quick Tip" that I use with my students in class. 


The first week of school, as we are sorting all our supplies, I hand out labels for students to place on their notebooks and folders.  As I work on distributing the labels, I have students write the title of the notebook on the edges of their notebook (as pictured above).  This does take a few minutes of the day, however, I have to say, it saves so much time later on in the year. I never have to hear, "I can't find my notebook," or "I'm still looking for my notebook." They just look in, read, and grab, allowing the learning to begin quickly. Do you have a "Quick Tip" to share? I'd love to hear it! =)

Your Thrifty Co-Teacher,

Cristy
