Organization Revisited

One of the other things I have been trying to get done since the start of my Christmas break is to organize my games and activities.  It was becoming difficult to find or even remember what I had since there were so many of them.  Inspired by Natalie's fun book,  "5 for Fun" (which is fabulous, by the way!) , I pulled out all of my games and activities, snapped a quick picture of them and have been putting them together in a three ring binder, organized by areas of learning such as Note ID, Rhythm, etc.

As I was pulling them out, I realized I had many games and activities I didn't remember I had!  I had previously put them all in an Excel spreadsheet, which did work fairly well, but often I would look at the name of the game and completely forget what it was or I would have trouble remembering all the pieces I needed for a game unless they were all together (which can sometimes be a storage nightmare!).  By putting everything together, snapping a quick picture and putting a quick, organized page together, I think it will work very well. 

Thank you, Natalie for such a brillant idea and for all of your hard work putting together "5 for Fun"!  I have really enjoyed it!
