I still have a few weeks, but many people are going back to school. I still have sewing classes going on in my learning center (aka what we call the portables). My husband is the best organizer I know. He inspires me to be better than I am (and people actually call me organized! HA!) I wanted to post a few organizational ideas that I have for this year:
1. I love this post of 20 tips for organization. My favorite is to make a “Where is it?” list. I am going to get started on that when I organize my classroom. I still cannot find the key to my filing cabinet that I put away when I was pregnant two summers ago. I wish I had this list then!
2. This is a great list of 8 things to do before the school year starts. I want to start planning my prep period. So many times I get wrapped up in something, and I don’t accomplish the main things. Also, do you use the remind app? We have our class websites, so I wonder how much the parents would use this app. What are your thoughts?
Also, I have my student desks in groups of four. I know this drives many of my colleagues crazy when they have to use my room, but this article explains why I do it.
Finally (more of my random thoughts!), check out Edutopia’s 8 weeks of free teacher resources for back to school. I love this website!
What are your organizational goals for this year? Have I missed any good ones?
