Reading Series Organization

by Krystal
(Alabama)

I am a first year teacher and a late hire at that.

I "inherited" the organizational system the previous teacher had used.

The previous teacher organized things was to make one file folder for each story, and then in the filing cabinet drawer use tall colored dividers to separate the units. In each story's file there are the picture/sequence story cards, all transparencies (grammar), vocab. word cards and one of each of the leveled readers.

This has not been a "curse" to me, but I must admit I don't think I would have arranged it that way.

I have materials all over the place.

What do you do?

Organize YOUR way
by: Kristin

Organize the supplies the way you NEED them to be arranged. I'm sure it has been quite difficult to start a new job as a late hire. At least you have some supplies to get you started and it may take a while before you are ready to completely reorganize from the previous teacher but it will help you in the long run. Your room needs to be arranged the way it will be most beneficial to YOU and your students. Good luck!
