Do you find yourself drowning in a mess of materials? Looking for the books you used yesterday or the pointers your young readers need? I have a lot of students coming in and out my door each day. I kept part of their work in baskets on a shelf and books in another place. It just wasn’t working for me. I needed a new system!
I had wanted one of the carts for some time. This year I found it at Sam’s Club for so much cheaper than anywhere else. It has been a time AND sanity saver!
Each drawer is for a specific reading small group, K-2. I also have a drawer for my Tier II and one for Tier III RTI groups. My materials slip right in and I know where everything is. It all stays together, in one place, all organized and neat. In this kindergarten drawer, I have our Sight Word Pockets (you can read about these here), plus the other materials needed by the students.
I can just take the drawer out of the cart and take it with me to the table. The drawers hold quite a bit. This one holds the sight word pockets, a set of readers, Reading Notebooks, pencils, pointers, etc…
At 5:00 eastern time, we will be having a fun time on Instagram! Come join us! You can find me at conversationsinliteracy. See you then!
