Monday Made It ~ Organization

Hello, Friends!
Summer has begun and it is time to link up with Tara from
It has been a long time since we have linked up!  I love summer because it gives me a chance to really get some blogging and exploring in.  Plus, I just need to relax!

This weeks Monday Made It is a simple organizational tool...
I am always looking for ways to become more organized!

Here is the cover and spine to the new binder that will hold all of our "Morning Daily Questions" which we have also begun using in our writing stations as writing prompts. I love binder systems! They look neat on the shelf and are easy to find!

Daily Question Binder, Yes/No Graph Binder

These are some of the different graphing sets we have created to match different themes throughout the year.

This is what the cards look like inside the sleeves.  They are ready to just pull and use! As soon as I use a question, it will go back in it's sleeve. So simple!

 In the past we used one of these:

The binder just seems to be a better fit!

Here is what the system looks like in action:

  1. I do a Question of the Day but I just use sentence strips. I keep them in a long storage box but it is definitely not as easy to store as your cards in a binder! Love your products...I have some of the black & white dot stuff!

    1. Thanks so much, Donna! How do you use question of the day? Is it as a writing prompt? We added to our writing stations for that purpose, but since ours are smaller they do not work from a long distance to see them unless we put them under the "ladybug."
      Thanks so much for stopping by!

    2. I teach PreK so my question of the day is pretty simple & straightforward. The kids answer it first thing after they unpack each morning. I try to ask questions related to our weekly themes/units of study and they're almost always Yes/No questions. Most questions also have a picture prompt to help my beginning readers. Each child puts their name card under their answer and then during our calendar time, we count/tally how everyone answered the question. Gosh, I need to do a blog post on that, don't I? LOL!

    3. That sounds just like ours! I love it! You learn so much about them as individuals. Sometimes we add extra columns but not too often. I have changed mine up since I got moved to 2nd. I have added more upper level questions that I will be adding to the store this month. I would love to read your blog post! Have a very happy day!
