Guided Practice: BINDER TIME!


Binder Guidelines:
Please do not write or draw on the actual binder - they are a gift from my
family and friends to you, and I want to use them again next year!
We will use binders to keep everything from the year organized. By the end
of the year, you will have an entire portfolio of work - you can even use them
for high school applications!

Binder Set-Up!
Directions: We are going to set up our class binders together. Make sure to
label your tabs with the correct titles:
Red: Math Journal
White: Weekly Packets
Blue: Quizzes and Tests
Orange: Tracking Sheets
Yellow: Other

Remember: make sure that the tabs are in that order, starting with red on
top and ending with yellow on the bottom.
