So I was planning to share this yesterday, but I got swept up in my classroom projects, a meeting that ran longer than planned, and my soccer game. I know Tara isn't doing her Monday Made-It series weekly now that summer is almost finished. However, I thought I'd keep up in the spirit of things and share with you what I have been making.
Besides beefing up my book units this summer, I have wanted to create some more independent math stations for my classroom. I already have a lot of great dice games and started thinking about better utilizing my math manipulatives. My newest project will utilize the packs of dominoes I have. I think I have the project finished, but I would love another set of eyes just to make sure. It's targeted for first and second graders. If you have a few moments to look it over for errors or confusion I would be so grateful. Just leave me a comment with a way to contact you.
Last spring I bought an Erin Condren planner during the big Teacher Appreciation sale. While it has a great section for a grade book, I keep so many checklists for things I wasn't sure I'd have enough pages. So, I made a separate grade book:
I'm sure I've mentioned it before, but I LOVE organizing with binders. What makes binders even more fun? Having some fabulous dividers!
Here's a close-up of some of my divider labels:
Now all I need is a class list so I can start making my grade book pages to put behind each section.
