|Kaelyn's books are now within reach in her white bookcase.|
|It's better to see this lighter color.|
|the objects against this wall, which are darker.|
|The blue wall has the calendar, vocabulary, and sight words.|
|The word wall also contains word family mini-books.|
|This box was holding Kaelyn's work in condensed form.|
|Often, the folders nested too close to each other.|
The red-pouched organizer allows one to see Kaelyn's subjects. We had been working with three boxes for Kaelyn's work. One was the plastic one for her immediate work (pictured above, which is now for the impending work). Another one was a cardboard box for impending work and hands on material, like flashcards with sight words. The last one was a cardboard box for work already finished and archived.
It would often happen, with the old system, that Kaelyn would finish a workbook and then go a whole month without doing anything for a given subject. Then, I would realize and pick up where we left off. We had wasted precious instructional time for that subject. Tsk! Tsk!
