I completed a binder that I will use this year and took some pictures so that you can see what they look like. The last pictures are of the back pocket of the binder where I will store extra sheets (in this case, the number writing sheet from 11-20–we won’t be ready for that for a little while). There is also a picture of the pouch that my Kinder. kids will use to store their Mini-Economy money in. I got them from the flooring company my brother used to work at. They were pouches that were attached to the carpet samples telling about the wear and tear of the carpet and the cost. I originally planned to use the pencil pouches designed for 3 ring binders, but these came along and were free!
Here are the pictures:
P.S. The picture of the pink paper is my original brainstorming sheet for these binders. A place where I collected my ideas before putting them into the computer and on to paper.
Here are some new binder pages I created for my Kinder. kids this year. I made a calendar, tooth tally chart, days in school tally page, birthday page, and a weather graph.
Here are some pages that my Kindergarten students will be using in their binders this year. I will post some now and come back later and add more.
My Kindergarten students will be using binders this year after we complete calendar together as a large group. I want them to have a more hands-on role in individually recording what they see happening during calendar. The pages above are some of the pages they will be using–I am still creating a few more. I put 10 sheet protectors in a 1 inch binder for each of them, as well as a large clear envelope that they will keep their Mini-Economy money in if they choose not to put it in the bank. You can see more about the time we will use our binders on the “Forms” tab and look for Lesson Plan Grid.
