I have joined up with Fun in Room 4B's Optimum Organization Linky Party! I am so excited about this because I have called this summer, "My Summer of Operation Organization!" I am moving from Kindergarten to First Grade (and changing my theme from pirates to owls), which means I had to separate all of my things from my teaching partner's things! This was tough!!! We combined all of our supplies, books, crafts, and so much more, two years ago! So, we had A LOT to go through and pack!
I am going to talk about two of my projects in this post.
Book Baskets: If you saw my classroom right now, you would GASP!!!!! I have ALLLLLLLLLLLL of my books on the floor in piles. This will be my 17th year of teaching, so I have collected a lot of books over the years. I am doing a complete overhaul! I am letting go of the books that need the Book Dr., I am giving away the books that I don't want anymore, and I am putting almost all of my books into theme organization. I will also add some to A.R. organization.
I was inspired by First Grade Glitter and Giggles! I love the way she set up her Classroom Library! I found these baskets on Really Good Stuff and I can't wait to add them to my Library!
Here are some of the labels I have made to add to the baskets! Can't wait to have this ALL DONE!
Teacher Toolbox/Supply Organizer: My next project is one that I posted about
I absolutely LOVE this organizer!!! These are all over Pinterest and I finally made one for my classroom!! Since I moved classrooms, all of my supplies are in boxes! I am organizing my classroom slowly. I love the phrase "go slow to go fast," and that's what I'm doing. I am spending A LOT of my summer organizing, but it will be sooooooooo worth it! Right???!!!
What are you doing to get/stay organized? Link up to Fun in Room 4B and share the love! Happy, Happy Organizing! :)
