I am known for being extremely organized. So I have decided to share some of my organizational ideas for the classroom:
I store my lesson plans in a 1 inch binder and stand it up on a stand. That way it keeps things from laying all over my desk.
This is how I organize my worksheets, lessons, etc. that I am using for that week. I purchased this at Lakeshore.
I always like to stay planned ahead. So this is how I store my copies for the weeks to come. I bought these bins at Wal-mart. Each bin is labeled math, morning work, centers, etc.
I put all the worksheets, activities, etc. I had for each unit in a 1 inch binder. It makes looking for things so much easier! It is also easy to store. You don't have to worry about all the file cabinet space.
This is how I store my construction paper, writing paper, fancy paper, etc.
This is how I organize all my files. I have a folder for each specific skill.
I have these big drawers in my classroom. In order to keep little things organized I used plastic storage bins as separators. I actually used the bins that our math manipulatives came in.
Here is a sneak peek into some of my desk drawers!
I store each month's bulletin board items, unit activities, etc. in one of these big plastic bags. I took the shelf out of my cabinet in order to store them all standing up.
I have these book holders for each of my units. They store the read aloud books or any student books that will be used during that unit. I got these book holders at Mardels.
I have a bin for each of my math manipulative items. I purchased these bins at Mardels.
I had my husband make these shelves to fit perfectly under my board. They store my student books and supplies.
Here is a close up of the book bins and the supply bins. I got these bins at Lakeshore and they came four in a package.
Here is a close up of the book bin leveling system that I use. All my student books are Accelerated Reader books. They are divided into the different tubs by their book level. I use a sticker and number system so the students know which bin to put their book back into.
This is another shelf that I had my husband make. This holds different manipulatives, games, activities, etc. for different skills. This makes changing out center games so easy!
Hope you enjoyed looking at how I keep some things organized. If you have any questions on how I organize something, even if it wasn't something that I posed, please let me know! I'll keep adding more ideas!
