incredibly organized and cute classroom! nice touch to have shelves at the end of every desk grouping

Look at the baskets under the chairs! She drilled holes in the baskets and then zip tied them to the chair. I want to do this!!!!!

(Cheap!) DIY Paper Sorter from stacked IKEA Magazine files. Just tape together with packing tape.

Great to email or give out to students and parents at the beginning of the year introductions. Maybe have the students fill one out too to help break the ice of the first week of school.

Laughing with Lane: Currently and Back to School Freebie Friday!

Classroom Organization: Listening Center or Small Group Work area idea. If only I had desks...I do have one small rectangle table...or my trapezoids...hmmm.

Krazy Kindergarten Teacher

Laminate and velcro name tags to desk instead of taping them. Lasts all year and easy to switch out!

Elementary Organization: gnarly name plates.

velcro dots on name tags, easily changeable.

Mrs. Lee's Kindergarten: New Classroom Pics!

Great classroom organization tip! Put bulletin board numbers or words on large rings--everything flips. No more boxes/files to store extra numbers or words. Make a few blank cards on the rings too, so you can change things up when necessary.

Mama Jenn: Calendar Time

use this sanitizer trick in your classroom for child-size squirts every time!

Dish drainer used for organizing files, etc.! The cup in the corner could be used for pencils or dry erase markers (if your file folder games are laminated). Or take the cup off completely.

Teacher Tip: Velcro your dry-erase markers to the board and point the tips downward for a longer-lasting marker!

Teacher contact info on a lable, glue on a die cut, add a magnet to the back and then parents can take it home to put on their fridge. WONDERFUL, cheap idea!

Dry erase circles made out of "sticky vinyl." The blogger said that they are available at Hobby Lobby. She said that they stick to the tables, and she leaves them there permanently. She cleans them daily with Magic Erasers. The kids even cut and glue on top of them and they clean up nicely, but she would probably replace them all at the end of each school year.

listening center corner. Good space saver using desks and crates

I like these, but for me they need to be on a smaller scale. Only make what you will use. Use fabric and cereal boxes. Or you can purchase 6 corrugated magazine racks for about $17 at Office Max.
