We have been in the process of unpacking our sets (first grade) and are wondering if you have suggestions for storing all the cards that come with the ready resources and online resources. They do not all fit within the folders and the original box. Also, there is a package of cards in the first grade kit that we can’t seem to figure out how/where they fit within the lessons in the book. They have days of the week, numerals, etc. Unlike other cards, they do not identify which lesson in which to use them. Thanks!

You might try this blog Unpacking the Phonics, Spelling, and Word Study System to give you more direction: http://www.fountasandpinnell.com/resourcelibrary/resource?id=391

This is a great blog and believe it will help clarify the materials. Some teachers put the general materials in large manilla envelops, labeled and stored in file cabinets. As you become more familiar with the lessons, you will gage the best location for them. I.e. you may find some materials/resources need to be in ‘bins’ right next to your instruction area. Some will be kept in the file for later use.

I hope this helps. We wish you success with the new PSW system.
