Reflection: Organizational Systems The Three Bears of Alaska - Section 2: Engage


Clipboards come in all shapes and sizes!!! There are so many different ways to make clip boards. Of course, the easiest way is to purchase them at which ever store is closest and easily available. Unfortunately, they will come with a high price tag and in the world of teachers, that is not always an easy accomplishment.  So it goes without saying that it is necessary to find other avenues to create and make clip boards that will help you in your classroom.

Mine are simple and incredibly thinking involved to be honest.  They are simply the extra shelves that slide into a furniture cubby that creates mailboxes for my students.  The unit has slots for fifty students. I only use about 22 of those slots. I remove the extra shelves to create larger cubbies and now have clipboards, as well as, storage space for students.  I  give the children binder clips that are color coded to match our table teams.  The colors make it really easy and quick for team leaders to grab their team boards and pass them out.  Especially, when we have saved work on the board to be finished at another time.  I have also taken labeling tape and numbered the clips for each table team.  This also makes it easy for my students to know which clipboard belongs to their teammates.  

Color coding really simplifies the organization for me and makes things very easy.  I use only three colors: blue, green, and purple.
