Getting “Speechie” with a Good Book: Organization!

You might have heard, but I love book companions.  The only problem I have had with them is how to organize them.  I tried big gallon sized Ziploc bags, but just wasn’t loving that as an organization strategy.  I recently cleaned out a file drawer and have reorganized a lot of my book companions. 

I have a green hanging file for each book.  If the book fits into the drawer, I also include the book in the file.  Then, I have a manila folder for each activity that is included in the book companion.

To store the cards that are usually included in book companion packets, I found a quick and easy way to organize these.  White envelopes.  I seal a long, business size envelope and then cut it in half.  Then, I glue the envelope onto the manila folder and store the cards in the half envelope.  I glue the half envelope with the opening towards the title tab so that the cards do not fall out of the folder.

I can keep all of my game boards, worksheets, and cards in one organized place!  I have been using this system for about a month now, and so far, I really like it.

How do you keep your book companions organized?
