CCSS File Folders. Organize activities and ideas by standard. ->"How smart is this lady!! Have a folder for each standard and then put activities, notes, and games into each folder!" #classroom #organization #ccss #standards #folders
Common Core Organization- this is a pin to the wonderful idea of creating file folders for each Common Core Standard. A separate file folder with a label is made for each standard. Then the exact, word for word standard is placed on the front of the folder using a label. (Some of the labels used are available as a free download on the website. Thank you, That's So Second Grade!)
That's So Second Grade!: Common Core Organization - I don't teach 2nd grade, but I like the way this is organized!
Common Core Organization - Nice blog post about how to organizer your CCSS resources-This is for second grade, but a good idea to use!

Homemade pet jelly fish. that's about the neatest thing EVER. I did this with my 3rd, 4th and 5th grade class. Told them to bring in a bottle and a bag. Some of the kids brought it in and the rest of the kids thought it was dumb. After we did this project, the kids who thought it was dumb, didn't think so anymore. Kids who made them, named them and love them at home now.
Fun project, make a jellyfish in a bottle...
