Colour Code your Cards! July Bright Idea

 How fabulous is the

Always lot of ideas for you to use in your classroom with things FROM your classroom!

This month I am going to talk about a pet peeve of mine - sets getting mixed up. You have multiple sets of number cards, sight words or playing cards so that lots of kids can work with them at once. You spend time sorting them, warning kids not to sit to close together, to look after 'their' set.

And then

Three sets are returned missing all the red cards and the other set has no 2's.

I hear you nodding.

Why not colour code your cards?

I recently bought some new jumbo playing cards (show below)
And some colourful dots.
I put one colour sticker on the back of each set of cards and then a matching spot on the front (if you have more sets than colours, just use multiple dots!) Hopefully this means that students can find their missing cards more easily and quickly

If you enjoyed this Bright Idea, why not follow me on Facebook, Pinterest or TeachersPayTeachers for more?

Currently July!!! and New FB Fan Freebie

Can you believe it is July? How fast is this year going?
I love linking up with 

Listening - My kids are really enjoying not having to rush to get ready for school in the morning. They go to before and after school care every day so we are normally out the door at 7.15 each morning. But today (its 8.16am now) they are in PJs dancing to One Direction! Love me some holidays!

Loving - My creative juices are going at the moment! I posted a new FB fan freebie this week which if you havent grabbed click HERE to go to my page and get it!. I am also working on a HUGE new pack...its going to be a long time in the making I think :)

Thinking - This term for the first time, we are going to be looking at DINOSAURS! I am so excited and I have so many to get them all on paper? Our new syllabus for English has a huge emphasis on multi-modal texts so I am making a list of TV shows and movies to incorporate into the study. So far I am thinking TV - Dino Dan, Dinosaur Train and Movies - Land Before Time, Walking with Dinosaurs. Have you got some other awesome suggestions?

Wanting - It is the middle of winter, although sometimes its hard to remember. Yesterday we went to the park to play and I ended up in a singlet top I was that warm! You do feel it at night and in morning though. Bring on SPRING!

Needing - This year is my first year back at work full time since before having my kids and I am struggling a bit with keeping the house in order. Its all I can do to cook the dinner, run the dishwasher and wash the clothes. Any tips for keeping me more organised?

4th Plans - In Australia, we don't acknowledge the 4th BUT my kids are both going out with friends on Friday so I am planning on catching up on trashy TV :)
