Some of my paper activities include very small pieces. For a long time I didn't know how to storage them properly in order to be able to have quick look at them and pick them up whenever I wanted. Until I found that simple idea.
Yes, this is a simple folder, the thickness folder I found in a store.
Very sturdy to hold all these papers in one place. Each activity is in a separate sheet protector. I have 2 folders so far. One for a math that includes: numbers, counting, patterns etc.. The other one I created for language: alphabet, phonics, sentences etc.
Other idea I found extremely helpful is a storage pocket chart.
I use it to organize activities I'm currently working on. I bought mine from that website: http://www.orientaltrading.com/ui/browse/processRequest.do?demandPrefix=12&sku=59/9024&prodCatId=388884&mode=Browsing&erec=3&Ntx=mode%2bmatchallpartial&sp=true&Ntk=all&requestURI=processProductsCatalog&tabId=3&N=388884&sd=Storage+Pocket+Chart I highly recommend it, if you like that kind of display.
If I have a project that I still need some part to it I put it on the top of the Pocket Chart. The lowest pocket includes activity I'm currently working on. Previously, my ideas where piled together on my desk. There were many times I couldn't find the one I wanted to work on or I simply missed the activity to prepare because my baby was already doing it with ease. These ideas work extremely goof for me and they make my life easier and more neat :)
Educational CD's organizer is another idea I want to share with you.
I include many educational videos with my teaching (Montessori, Your baby can Read, Spanish videos etc). In the last 2 years I bought quite a few of them. Some videos are still too advanced for Eaton to see but I already have them in place.
This organizer I bought in Target for about $30. It holds 100 videos. It allows me to put aside all video cases away, deep in a closet and save a lot of place in our TV stand. The organizer has separators on which you can write down names of video series you have. That makes searching easier and with no effort.
Just want to share.
Enjoy your day!
