I finally got into my classroom! FREEBIE!

Where did June go???
July???  Already? 
 (Sniff...sniff...deep breath..)
OK...student's are coming to school July 26..
I had better go & see what it looks like..
EEEEEEEKKKKKKK!
WHO LEFT THIS HUGE MESS!!!????
Oh, yeah...ME? :)
I locked the door ...AND  RAN!!!!!
Whew! Time to clean up!
So, I spent today (again) working in my room, this time...
throwing things away!
I purged like I never have before!
My poor janitor...he came in twice to take away PILES.
But it's getting there.
I have 3 big things I did TODAY:
1. I got rid of my teacher desk. 
No more file cabinets, drawers, or "piling" surface.
I now have a "U" reading table as my area! 
LOVE THIS!
 I now have 2 tall (5ft) bookcases next to my area.
2. I made a "supply" center ( Lowes tool box) 
for all of my desk supplies.
AND...
to keep all of my centers and student stations...
LOOK AT WHAT I DID TODAY!
WMart  3 drawer containers.
I "cutsied" ( is that a word?) them..
LOVE LOVE LOVE them!
My counter has NEVER been this clean! :)



I couldn't decide what I wanted on each label.
So, I chose the month ( so I can add theme materials)
AND
next to it, I put what skill is taught during that month.
My thinking is ...
when I create or purchase new materials,
I can file them either by the month OR by the skill.
Math was a little harder...most CCSS cross the entire year.
You can't just teach number & operations in August...all year long! 
I think I will keep the standard, and separate each one by quarter.
Maybe...or maybe monthly...I dunno yet. 
I need to live with it a while & see how things go!
Busy day! 
Tomorrow I challenge the dreaded....
PUZZLE CABINET!    UGH!

FREEBIE...You made it to the bottom of this post...
Here's the labels for the drawers...Yours if you can use them! (Click on the picture)
Happy Wednesday!

  1. Back to school already?? You must be on the year-round schedule. If you are, then I'm super jealous. 3 months on, 1 month off is much better for me. 10 weeks off at once is too much for me. Good luck with that back to school prep. : )

  2. I am going back and forth with getting rid of the teacher desk! You are so brave. I think I could do it, but I still have a few weeks before I can even get into my class! We start August 28th!
