Bright Ideas: Math Centers Triple Pocket Organizers

Upon taking inventory of my laminated centers, I've counted about a caboodle of them and that makes a kazillion parts and pieces. AND even though I had gracious plenty centers, I didn't have them handy when I needed to spend a few extra minutes with a struggling learner. 

Recently I found these nifty little plastic sleeves with double pockets and they've saved the day. 

For each center, I put the recording sheet and answer sheet or other large pieces in the largest pocket, the sleeve. I put all of the other pieces in the front pockets.

Finally, I put the centers in notebooks by skill, strand or season. For example, all of my centers for comparing numbers are right here ready to pull and use.

I got mine from Staples (three pocket sheet protector, item 952556).
