Just a quick follow up to my last post. I was able to go to my classroom this week to get a few things done, one of which was making sure I had space to organize my interactive notebook bins. This is how they're going to be starting out the year, but who knows if it will stay this way. I plan to spruce it up a bit more, but not until the end of August or when I go back to school in early September. But, this will give you an idea as to how it will look. The white bins are where the students will place their notebooks at the end of each class period. The rectangular trays house glue, scissors, white out, tape and erasers (students are responsible for their own colored pens). The square containers will be where each group (of four desks) throws away their scraps. For more information on the jobs this, please visit my previous post describing in detail how I will work the routines with the interactive notebooks. Oh and please ignore the top of the shelves, I just put that stuff there to keep it somewhere until I come back at the end of the summer to put it away.
