Monday Made It Notebooking Organization

I'm going to try my hand with more interactive notebooking this coming school year.
I figured out this handy way to organize the many Common Core clip prompts I plan to utilize.
I cut apart each standard prompt and paper clipped them together as a set. 
Then, I labeled each corner of a sleeve protector with a Sharpie like this: RL 1, RL 2, RL 3 and so on.
All the standard prompts are then put in the matching sleeve.
I figured this system would help save me time.  I'll simply pass them out with an appropriate lesson and have students glue them into their response notebooks.

I've also been busy purging and shredding old bills and records in my home office.

Final product is a trash can full of shredded confetti.

  1. Great idea to print them out ahead of time! It will definitely make life easier. (And who doesn't want that???)

  3. I hope to use interactive notebooks more this year so I really appreciate this tip. I love things that can prepped ahead of time!

  5. What a good way to organize your prompts...I know that'll save you some time!

    Congrats on getting all your shredding done! I know that's a relief.

  6. Its so crazy seeing all of these posts about common core, and being from Texas, we haven't adopted them. Still going with our state mandated ones. Love the binder organization though! I moved to that last summer and am so glad I did!

    Reaching for the TOP!

  7. Great idea to print them out in advance! Very organized:) Thanks for linking up!

  8. I love this idea...I really want to use interactive notebooks, but worry about the instructional time cutting/pasting with little third grade hands will take up. Did you write the prompts yourself? Would you be willing to share with a new-to-Common-Core teacher? I'd so so appreciate it!
