Organizing Your SGM Materials for the New School Year

by Sheila Zagula June 10, 2016 1 min read

As another school year winds down, I am reminded of what I always loved about teaching: There was always another year to plan to engage children, change approaches, learn new techniques, and grow as a professional!

As you pack up supplies and begin a few weeks of rest, file this idea away with your materials to consider implementing next year. This picture is an idea that Natalia Kofman, a colleague of mine in Westfield, MA, used to organize her SGM® materials in her fourth grade classroom.

The cardboard display poster and plastic pockets can be ordered online and can be EASILY Pocket Folder Samplesmoved to different locations / student groups within the classroom.

This method also lends itself to teachers who travel from room to room. If you have other ways that you organize your SGM® materials, please share them on our MindWing Concepts Facebook page.

Thank you Natalia, for letting us share this idea!
