Do you work with a basal reading series? Our district adopted Reading Wonders and I absolutely LOVE it! Of course, I tweak many things and I don't JUST use Reading Wonders. I integrate many TPT products and hands-on activities into my reading block. However, I do use the weekly assessments provided by the series. They target the benchmarks of the week and assess students on weekly grammar skills. Last year, I decided to create a binder to keep all of my weekly assessments.

I organize theme selection and grammar assessments by units. This makes it so much easier to locate the assessment every week and run the needed copies. This series does not come with a book of assessments. The assessments are found online. So, instead of having to log on and find them every week, I keep them all handy in this binder! (Plus, it looks super cute! haha)

I place the answer keys behind each unit divider. :) 
You can download these dividers for free HERE. (They're made for Reading Wonders only)
The beautiful digital papers are from Gabb'y Classroom

Simply cut the tabs and paste them on each divider. Make sure to measure the distance between each tab so they don't overlap! Once they all look perfectly aligned (This took me a couple of attempts LOL), laminate the entire divider. :) 

Enjoy & happy organizing!

It's August which means.... back to school season. #bittersweet
This also means, time to organize & create! I've linked up with Fourth Grade Frolics for my FAVORITE link party:

I painted my white Ikea stools to match my classroom. Absolutely in LOVE with the colors.
You can find these Ikea stools HERE for only $4.99! They're great for the computer station and/or guided reading table. 

Soo excited about this! Last year, I had my students purchase coupons from a coupon catalog using their Dojo Dollars. After choosing from the catalog, the students receive the actual coupon. What was the problem? No organization! I found this box at Ikea for $3.19. It's perfect! I label each coupon in my catalog with a number. (Ex: "Pick a Pencil" is coupon #1) The coupons are labeled in the box and it makes it much easier for me to find the correct one. 

The Ikea box can be found HERE.

The little monsters go perfect with my Classroom Economy set :) 
You can grab the box cover for FREE by clicking the link below.
(Make sure you comment if you use the freebie!)

Found these BEAUTIFUL containers at Family Dollar and I just had to get them! I promised myself I wouldn't do table caddies this year since they have been a disaster these last two years. Somehow, they always end up on the floor with no supplies inside. -_- I guess we'll see how they workout this year. The labels were a freebie provided by One Sharp Bunch

Spiced up my supply containers with my new chalkboard Supply Labels! 
Click HERE to find them in my TPT store. 

I found this pack of 3 storage containers at the Dollar Tree & decided to try a little makeover! I spray painted the lids, added some labels, and TA-DA! (They're kind of flimsy so we'll see how long they last.)

and finally, laminated my Motivational Posters to decorate some of the plain walls for the first weeks of school before putting up student work and anchor charts. You can also find these in my TPT store.

Well, time to create some more for NEXT Monday! Have a great week! :)
