A Binder Ring Roundup!

311 total views

I am so happy to be here on Charity’s blog sharing one of my favorite item to use in my classroom:  Binder Rings.

I know, they are not new or high tech but I am loving them this year and wonder why it took me so long to start using them.

Here is how I use them in my classroom.

1. Hanging goal charts – easy to change up goals and they will be easier to reuse year to year (rather than staples or tape!)

2. Hanging anchor charts – these are on my book cart. They help hide some of the mess and make the anchor charts easily accessible for my students.

They are also easy to change up – I can just flip back to one if I need to review it for a lesson.

3. Small group resources – question cards, sharing prompts etc. that I like to have on hand when working with small groups.

4. Questions, sharing prompts and anchors for me and students to use during group lessons.

I hang them on my rolling white board/chart for easy access.

5. Student resources – 1 of my absolute favorites!

I have reading response sentence starters and a mini-thesaurus on binder rings for each of my students.

They use them all the time. They are easy to flip through and they love them.

6. Flash cards by the door – right now I have multiplication fact cards.

I keep them posted by my door.

Before students leave at the end of the day they have to answer the question on the card – so easy to stand there and flip through them.

We also use them to review while waiting for other students to get ready and line up.

Sometimes I flash the card, students raise their hand and if they get the answer right they move to the front of the line.

We try and see how far down the hall we can move by answering questions.

You could use any type of flash card – I like math review cards and word cards.

I use the flash cards I buy at the dollar store and just punch holes in the corner but you could make and print some too. {Make sure to keep reading for a free set below.}
