This is six years worth of
These are my binders (not all are pictured, because I need more binders).
My binder categories are:
Letters and Sounds
Literacy Work Stations
I just laid out all the binders. If I didn't have a binder, I made a piece of paper with the title. Then I started sorting. This was early, early in the process. My living room floor was completely covered in papers. I also was able to go through my files and I had quite a few duplicates and quite a few things that just needed to go to recycling ASAP!
Once I sorted, then I began putting documents in page protectors.
Since I did all this work on my binders, I felt like I should keep the same system electronically. My files are all in folders that match the same title as my binders! I love it :)
This didn't take as long as I thought. Now my binders match my electronic file folders and life is organized!
