All teachers have their time savers, but this one is the most amazing ever! Last year, this teacher put everything they did that week in a labeled folder- tests, projects, the readings, vocab-everything. This year, she simply grabs the folder, tweak the lessons a little, and she's done. It saves student samples in here as well. She also puts a copy of her old lesson plans to make planning easier.
Busy Bags for littles - WOW! Check out this organization! This would be great for math manipulatives in bags, CDs / DVDs for check-out in school or classroom library, storage of small parts in classroom and so much more!
With having so many workbooks inside desks, I just swipe a fat Mr. Sketch marker along the bottom pages of the book. That way, when the books are piled inside their desks, they can see the colors! When I ask my students to take out a book, I'll say something like, "Please take out your Grammar Green book!" It really does help, and it makes transitions quicker and easier! And after a few weeks, my kiddos will be telling me which book is which!
Definitely organized! Love the organization idea at each desk. The wire baskets could be cubbies and the red bins could hold extra supplies for each table grouping and each tables supplies they use could be stored in a caddy. I am so doing this for next year!
