Yay!! Here is what it would look like during center time:
If a student is going to the Chalkboard Center (Center #3), they would walk over and open the bin located at that center.

There are labels on the bottom of the sheet protector to help students find the one they need quickly:

I am so excited!! I hope this works well. I know I will probably have to change out the sheet protectors every so often, but they are very inexpensive!
Organization Idea #2: I carry a notebook around with me everywhere I go. But it may not be the same notebook. I just grab whatever notebook is closest so I have something to write in.

I hope these tips help you! I would love to hear about any organizational strategies that help your year run smoothly!
