Welcome to the blog everyone! This is my first linky party, and only my second post ever! YAY!
I thought I would share 2 things that REALLY help keep my classroom organized:
When I moved into my wonderfully HUGE room last year I inherited a TON of books. So many that I didn't know what to do with them... So I spent about 6 hours going through them all, getting rid of ones that were in bad shape, setting aside those I didn't want, and organizing the ones I was keeping- YIKES! It was quite the undertaking- books strewn everywhere and plenty of paper cuts. BUT I ended up with this:
I LOVE it! So my labels aren't anything special. I made them myself and they are black and white and not super cute by blog community standards but they work for me and they cover all the things I want covered! Whenever we are planning I can quick pull out books because I know exactly where they are.
Table Group Organization
I have 22 kids and 6 tables with pencils, erasers, glue, crayons, notebooks, and journals to keep organized and it was all too much for me! So on a trip to Lakeshore I found the perfect organization tools:
These table caddies and bins have saved me! The kids keep their folders and journals in the bin that matches their table color so I don't have to worry about passing out anything now- OOOO organization and a time saver! The table caddies keep all their materials in one spot and when the table leaders carry them to tables everything they need is there.
