Are you tired of coming into work on a Monday morning and totally forgetting that you did not print off the student's morning work? With this product, you no longer have to worry about running off to the printer during those crucial morning prep minutes as this interactive binder allows students to work through the binder all year long!
Here is how it works. Each student will need a binder (yes this can be a costly upfront fee), sleeve protectors for each printed page, and a dry erase marker. These are all things that I include on my supply list and can all be bought at the dollar store! When the students come inside my classroom in the morning, the students get out their binder and marker and begin working on the number and word of the day. I have a new number each day (reflects the number of days we have been in school) as well as a new grade level vocabulary word. I have both of these written on the white board along with which pages I want my students to complete that day. When my students walk in, they look at the board for their morning work agenda and begin working. I spend the first 3-4 weeks of school training them on how to use their folder and after that, they become very independent.
Once students finish the required activities for the day, they can practice of additional pages (high frequency words, letter/number tracing, etc.). My students are not allowed to say "I am done!" or sit there doing nothing. They must work until I ask them to stop.
