A Little More Organization
Elementary AMC June 15, 2013
Happy Saturday! I have been so excited for this weekend, not because we have big plans, but because we have no plans and I have nothing that I have to get done. Report cards done, check. Dance recitals done, check. Castle built and brought to school, check. Castle report done, check. House cleaned.........
So anyway, I thought I would take a minute to link up with Elizabeth at Fun in Room 4B and Kristen at Ladybug's Teacher Files for their Optimum Organization Linky.
The small print says to share tips that may help out a new teacher and I hope that these tips help save someone a little time.
Here is my first tip.
Now you might be thinking, that is a really obvious tip, but sometimes I am amazed by how long it takes to figure something so obvious out, or see it on a blog or pinterest and be in shock that I didn't think of it. Case in point. Right next to my lovely numbered hooks are baskets for the students. These are to store their hats, gloves, shoes (I know there is a pair of shoes not in a basket in the pic above!). Each year I LABEL the baskets with the students names. I was just looking at them thinking about tidying up for the end of the year and I thought "Why don't I number the baskets too!" So that is what I will be doing this summer. Making number labels for my baskets. (Note the poorly peeled off label in the pic below!)
