Where did my SUMMER go?
July??? Already HERE? End of JULY is close! NO!!!!
(Sniff…sniff…deep breath..) I need to get my classroom ready for… The First day of SCHOOL!
I had better go & see what it looks like..
WHO LEFT THIS HUGE MESS in my classroom!!!????
Oh, yeah…ME? 🙂
Whew! Time to clean up!
So, I spent today (again) working in my room, this time…
throwing things away!
I purged like I never have before!
My poor janitor…he came in twice to take away PILES.
But it’s getting there. Now to teacher organization.
I have 3 big things I did TODAY:
1. I got rid of my teacher desk.
No more file cabinets, drawers, or “piling” surface.
I now have a “U” reading table as my area!
I now have 2 tall (5ft) bookcases next to my area.
2. I made a “supply” center ( Lowes tool box)
for all of my desk supplies.
to keep all of my centers and student stations…
LOOK AT WHAT I DID TODAY!
WMart 3 drawer containers.
I “cutsied” ( is that a word?) them..
LOVE LOVE LOVE them!
My counter has NEVER been this clean! 🙂
I couldn’t decide what I wanted on each label.
So, I chose the month ( so I can add theme materials)
next to it, I put what skill is taught during that month.
My thinking is …
when I create or purchase new materials,
I can file them either by the month OR by the skill.
Math was a little harder…most CCSS cross the entire year.
You can’t just teach number & operations in August…all year long!
I think I will keep the standard, and separate each one by quarter.
Maybe…or maybe monthly…I dunno yet.
I need to live with it a while & see how things go!
Busy day! I love getting organized!
Tomorrow I challenge the dreaded….
PUZZLE CABINET! UGH!
