Binders,a Freebie and a Halloween SALE

This may sound silly to many of you but I LOVE 3 ring binders! They keep my organized and and I love being able to find my units quickly. My biggest problem is that my binders have been busting at the seams. I keep adding ideas to them and they keep getting fatter and fatter. I had to fix them and QUICK! I loaded up on 3 ring binders and of course plastic sleeves from Costco and created new spines and covers for all of the binders. 
A huge smile was on my face after I reorganized everything. I now have some more space to continue adding to my ideas to my units in math, language arts and monthly ideas. 

We wrapped up our geometry unit this week with this Freebie activity from Jamie Rector. Each student got a baggy with "treats" in it. 

They had to identify the 2D or 3D shape, the number of sides, vertices and real life objects of the same shape. The kids love anything with food and don't realize they are learning at the same time. I love that! 

I am throwing a SALE this weekend in my TpT store. Everything is 20% off through Sunday!

And don't forget I have these adorable pumpkin glyphs that will be great for this coming week.
Enjoy your weekend everyone!

  1. Love the binder organization. I'm in the process of redoing my binders into smaller units so everything is more compact.
