Hey Y'all! I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas and I wish you a Happy, Healthy New Year.
One of the best things we can do for ourselves is get organized! It makes our lives so much easier when we can quickly locate the items that we need. Organization at home and school is something I've had to work really hard at. For awhile my husband thought his name was, "Have you seen my......" :)
To get organized You MUST have bins to store your stuff in. I always make sure that each bin is clearly labeled so that I can easily see what is inside.
These are the bins I use to store ALL of my theme materials. Everything that goes with that unit is stored in the bin. Books, center activities, charts, patterns, resource books, etc;
I also have a bin for each Math Strand. This is what it looks like inside.
Notice that I store everything in clear ziploc baggies so that I can EASILY see what is inside.
Another way to stay organized is to have a spot for each student to put their papers and materials that they need to take home. Inside the mailboxes are the students binders.
Here is a close up of the mailboxes.
You will see the drawers on top hold materials that I need.
Each student has a Guided Reading bag so that they can take their reading materials home to read to their parents.
Here's a peek inside the bag. Each one has a reading log and Word Work book.
This is the inside of my drawer that holds my Guided Reading materials.
Again, I can easily see everything that is inside. No digging around for things.
Here are my Big Books. I store them in a laundry hamper that I bought from Target.
It is the perfect size and it takes up very little room.
Keep yourself organized! I use ONE planner and I record all of my school appointments and personal appointments in the same planner so that I don't over book myself.
Here a few more organizational posts that I've done
