At the beginning of the year, when I was moving into my classroom, I was obviously extremely overwhelmed with everything. I didn't know where to start or what to do. My big sister (also a teacher), my little sister (the muscles), and my Mom had come and they worked in my classroom when I went to my new teacher orientation. Thank goodness they came because they organized and hung up and set up most of my classroom!
When we were organizing, I didn't want to throw anything away or move anything because, well, I had no idea what I was going to need/want/use. Throw on top of that, when we were getting ready for EOG testing, I threw A LOT of my random junk into those cupboards so they were hidden. So, I had a lot of work to get done.
Here's my beginning/middle. I had already emptied my teacher desk (I don't want it back!) and that is part of what is all over my kidney table.
Look what I found! This made me laugh.
|My supplies are organized and labeled now with Post-Its. After summer, I'll make some cuter labels. :)|
Same closet! Those binders hold lesson plans, standards, policy manuals, and student information.
|This one is blurry but I condensed and organized my FIVE force and motion kits and measurement kits. So much better than a million boxes!|
So excited to go back to a neat and organized room!
On a side note, this is my summer job. Jealous? :)
