Focus Board Organization Grades 1-6

A bit of  a trick that I use to organize and make my FOCUS BOARD easy to use.
The Focus Boards are available in my store for Grades 1-6.
They are specific to your standards and schedule of the McGrawHill WONDERS.
This is how I have chosen to organize my pieces of the FOCUS BOARD.
Each piece is laminated and cut.  Then, I placed the areas of focus in a rubber band and tossed them into a small drawer.

I refer to the ORGANIZATIONAL TOOL that I added to each FOCUS BOARD to allow you to see what pieces you will need to update for the specific week.  This takes me about 3 minutes total for each week and I'm ready to go!!!

"Teacher, I'm Done" Task Cards $1

"Teacher, I'm Done!" ... "What should I do next?"

Copy, laminate and display these task cards... 
give each student a booklet and you are set for every month of the school year. 

When they have a free minute they can review language and math skills completing task cards. 
Teach them responsibility, independence and allow you to finish the task you 
were working on without interruption.

I found these cute boxes at Walmart today.
They are for crayons... however,  by printing the cards at 70% they fit perfectly inside!
Just another way to prep them for the kids.

Click the picture below to see how I have been displaying mine in my classroom.
Maybe I'll be shaking things up this year with these cards and boxes ;)
