Monday Made it: New labels

This is my first time linking up for Monday Made It and I'm so excited to be participating for the first time!!

During the last week of school, I was doing everything in my power to get stuff done so I wouldn't have to do it when school started up again. One of the things I wanted to get done was making new labels for my math manipulative and other supplies.  I had started making chevron labels for other things in my classroom and I wanted these to match.

Classroom Organization: Mini Academic Posters

I make posters for everything! I hang them in the front of my room for the students to use as a reference tool.  
They usually have some sort of information that they write on an interactive foldable graphic organizer that goes into their notebooks.
In this picture, my 6th graders are using the posters to work on their planet projects.

With all these posters I needed a better way to organize them.  I found these tubs at Staples on clearance. I used two of them for my colored paper organization and one for my posters.  They fit perfectly under the table that sits behind my desk.

I made a tab for each of our new strands in math (red - 6th grade and purple - 5th grade), the four different branches of science (green) and for social studies each of the tabs match my unit binders - see below (blue and white). Notice that I color coordinated the tabs and the folders. I had to hunt down a bunch of colored tabs, but I wanted them all the match. I'm anal, I know....

The social studies tabs match my unit binders and my foldable binder tabs (these are for my 5th grade social Studies resources).

Foldable Friday: Women of the American Revolution

There were so many people that my students needed to learn for the American Revolution. I don't know about your state test, but in Indiana the test is very specific. I created these interactive foldable graphic organizers to help my students remember some of the famous women that helped during the American Revolution.

These interactive foldable graphic organizers and many more can be found in my People of the American Revolutions poster and graphic organizer set. Just click on the picture below to find it in my TpT store.
