A little something that I think that you will LOVE!

Happy Sunday!! I am so glad to have the had a very successful first week of school!! I would love to have just one more day to stretch the weekend out but I am ready for another great week with my new second graders!

I wanted to share something that makes organizing all the folders and spirals that can be found in my ELAR classroom. Using the adorable graphics from Thistle Girl Designs, I created labels for each of the folders and spirals that my second graders use during our ELAR block.

These are the folders that we use:
Work Folder

Writing Folder

and we use the following spirals:
Treasure Book (personal journal)
Writer's Notebook
Reader's Response
Now, I went around and around thinking about how to organize their supplies and decided that I would use a numbering system. This way they know their numbers, it corresponds with my gradebook, and I know when I have everyone's supplies (or if someone's is missing).

So I made generic name labels to use with my kiddos that I can but on anything I pass out.

When I created the files, I used the Avery label number in the file name and I hope that all the labels print out beautifully for you. Please feel free to let me know if anything needs to be tweaked :)

looking for a few more ideas?
I shared this on:

I just wanted to let you know that none of the pictures are showing up. So you can see what you would download. Just trying to help you out!

Thank you for sharing these! I could open all of them but the Work folder. I get the message: Sorry, we are unable to retrieve the document for viewing or you don't have permission to view the document. And by the way, I am a fellow Texas Ag! Whoop! :)
