It in the Cards

I wanted to add on to my Fluency packet last night and instead ended up creating a 36-page set of long and short vowel sorts!  It was a bit much to add onto my Fluency packet so I created The Long and Short of It.  It comes with flash cards, headings for sorting and recording sheets for the students to use.

Get it from my {Tpt Store}
Get it from my {Teacher's Notebook Store}

Here's a sample of my Sight Word Flash Cards too:

I got the cute clipart for both from Graphics from the Pond and KPM Doodles!

And I got these cool fluency phrases from Abby over at Ms. Alley's 2nd Grade Class.

So my dilemma was how to store all my adorable new flash cards??  I want to be able to access them quickly during my guided reading groups.  I found these cute mini portfolios and bucket from Target.  The accordion files fit perfectly in the buckets.  And they're bright colors!

I cut out the "files" from one of them and it is just like a large, durable envelope.

I kept the files in this one to separate my vowel cards.

I LOVE them!  And there's a little extra room for cards that aren't in a portfolio:

  4. That is a GREAT idea to store the cards! I lose my sight word flashcards all the time because apparently I carry them with me all over the room, haha! I think if they were in this bright container, maybe I could find them faster. :)
