I struggled for a while with All About Reading Level 1 trying to figure out how to organize all of it. I’d seen different posts with how people were doing it and that got me thinking.
At first, I hole-punched the word cards and had them on a ring. But, if I was looking for a specific lesson, then I had to flip through all of the words. Time lost, okay only a minute or so, but in 7 year old time that is IMMENSE.
Enter my plan, and this will work smoother next year because I will know ahead of time how I want to do this.
This is a mini-manila envelope. It’s about half the size of a normal one. I suppose I could put them in full size ones, but this works perfectly once game pieces are cut out, and if it’s a lesson with only word cards.
I send the kids off to cut things out for me, and then I staple or glue it together.
If it’s a game that has a sorting element or something that “eats the word,” I glue it to the front. The eat the word games then have a slit cut into them so the game piece goes directly back into the envelope. This lets me revisit favorite games easily.
Which as you can see is wildly popular.
