Hello! Tonight's post is an organization post that I want to share. It's in regards to games and the itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny cards that accompany them! I have been using the method that I am about to tell you about for many years and it is amazing! I hope you find this post helpful!
Tip: Photocopy your game cards on scrapbook paper. Use different colors for each “set” of cards. I use regular weight scrapbook paper because I have a professional grade laminator that makes the plastic extra hard.
Scrapbook paper not for you? Simply use your regular card stock and number the back of the cards by sets. Ex: A set of cards all have the number 1 on the back, another set all have a 2 on the back, etc…
Now, fast-forward to May/June. Johnny finds a straggler card
under your rug, crinkled up in a dust bunny/wad of hair on the floor and you're like, "OMG. That game is put away." But THEN you realize your beautifully organized cards! Pull the bag of card sets out
and BAM! You put it in the correct deck!
The pictures below show how I make my cards, store/organize them, and distribute materials for games. The board game featured is from Kathy Law at First Grade a la Carte! Love her games!
I love using cookie sheets in the classroom! Below are two little sets that I use cookie sheets with!
