Hey friends! Happy Thursday.
I'm here with some tips on how to organize your classroom and most importantly your word walls!
This year we were told we needed to have word walls. Thankfully, I was already a step ahead as I have had a word wall since I started teaching. This is my word wall in the beginning of the year.
Of course this is how it looked like in the beginning. I slowly started putting up words that I know my little ones would need assistance with.
Last week, I bought these cute little things at the $1 spot at Target. Seriously, $1? I couldn't pass it up!!
Aren't these little accordions so cute? I am obsessed with chevron right now so thought this would go perfect with my theme in the classroom.
So I was thinking of how to incorporate this into the classroom and ding ding ding! Lightbulb!
at the bottom of my drawer for those cute little word wall cards and came up with a "duh" kind of idea.
I could organize my word wall cards to make my life a bit easier!
This is what the little accordions look like.
So I put them together neatly. This is the final outcome.
This is the other set.
All together, I used 2 of the accordions and labeled each pocket with 2 letters. The last letters, I combined together and labeled those letters W-Z.
I think they came out perfect! This should definitely make my life a bit more organized.
I put the pockets in a cute bin and put it right next to the word wall to make it easier to take down old words and put up new ones.
Here it is!! Fits perfectly with the other bins.
I have 3 left over accordions to play around with. Any ideas on what to do with them? Love to hear what you think. =)
