The children are thrilled at the
selection of nomenclature available in the classroom, and they've dug
right in! They've been learning all the names of the parts of the
flower, bird, insect, tree, and so many more.

about here. You're practically as excited as they are
and step over to your cupboard to find the blackline masters for them.

They print 4 per sheet of regular 8½ x 11" paper.
But wait ...
where did you put the blackline masters?
Or maybe you found them,
but you don't have enough copies! eek!!

how well prepared you think you are, inevitably one of the children
will select a nomenclature lesson that requires a blackline master that
you can't seem to find as quickly as you need it, or you don't have

So we'd like to share a few storage
solutions for your Nomenclature blackline masters.
Store cut Nomenclature in photo album pockets
If you have a
small group of children, you can store sets of cut nomenclature
blackline masters in photo album pockets. It's best to find the pockets

on a shelf. back to top

have the blackline masters printed, cut, and clipped together in an
indexed storage basket.

the set you want, cut and glue them on to your dividers. Or save time by
printing directly on to a large blank sticker sheet. You can laminate
the divider afterward for durability if you want. back
Store cut Nomenclature in a hanging file folder system
If you prefer
to keep the blackline masters in the full page format (so that the
children have to cut their own), a hanging file folder system works very
The point is, if you're going to have
great nomenclature in your classroom you have to make sure the
blackline masters are easily available to the children. Otherwise
they won't feel the freedom to complete the work on their own.

children the responsibility to check the remaining 'stock' of blackline
masters and fill it as necessary. back
