Trying to be organized

Today I am linking again with blog hoppin’. I can’t believe I am blogging three days in a row!
During the Summer conference I made a trip to Target and bought this cute planners I want to use this year.
As I have said we are not back in the classroom until September so almost everything is in the school. My favorite organizational supplies are binders! I have tons of them.
This is an old photo and I had not include the labels yet. But you can see some of my binders to store assessment, group work, students information, worksheets…
I try to keep my classroom as organized as possible as I want to be a good example for my students. They don’t come to my house, so that is a different thing. 😉
In the craft folder I keep each craft in a plastic sleeve with an example for easy reference.
My term folders are my favorite! Everything I create/purchase for my classroom goes in them.
When I arrived to my school printing or photocopying was a big deal so I got used to print at home. When I get to school I make the copies and put the originals in these display folders.
I have one for each term and each one has 60 plastic sleeves so everything is organized by week and by subject.
I insert a sticky note with the objectives for that week.
I can’t wait to see how you organize!

Monday made it!

I know… It’s Tuesday. But it is my first time joining this linky and I did not want to miss it!

I have had the same velcro boards for years. I use them to display helpers, fast  finishers options and many more.
It looked great at the beginning of the year but then if faded and looked messy.

This year  I have finally changed them:
Both are done with IKEA red magnetic board.
 I just printed the jobs, laminated them and added some old vistaprint magnets that were left from back to school. For the helpers board I used some IKEA magnets too. I wrote my students’ numbers on each one of them.

If you look at my window you can see that I LOVE my chalkboard pens and I use them everywhere. 😉

Thanks for the linky, Tara!
