Why Am I already thinking about NEXT Year??? FREEBIE , too!

I usually get to April-May 
and begin ...
CLEANING!
Not my house..though I should..
MY CLASSROOM!
I want to rearrange desks..redo centers..plan out a better "Workshop" model...
ALL for NEXT YEAR!
I know I can't change everything in my room TODAY.
But my brain won't STOP!
I want to redo my classroom library, reorganize my files, find a better way to manage PAPER!
So, I sit...my mind wanders...and I think of all the things I want to do...
IF THE KIDS WERE NOT HERE!
But wait! They are!
THEY can organize book tubs!
THEY can sort paper into neatly colored stacks!
THEY can Clean!
So..
USE THEM!
Here are a few things I am working on to help ME get ORGANIZED:

Making sure I have a place for ALL of my resources!
LOVE ME AN ORGANIZATIONAL BINDER! 

Drawers are my favorite! 
I just put one set on each side of my guided reading table! 
I Love having my "tools" at my fingertips!



I have 2 sets on my counter...one for ELA & one set for MATH!
ALL of my centers are in HERE!

Weekly 'PAPER' drawers...
Anything that has been run off OR torn out...is ready to go!

Desk trinkets...

MY LOVE! 




And of course...BOOKS!
And MORE BOOKS!
I told you I am reorganizing my classroom library.
3 library ARENAS!
AR books.
Leveled reading books ( DRA 1-24)
Theme books.
WOWZA!


So..I have started.
NOT even close to where I hope to be.
Just a little....SPRING CLEANING! :)
Happy Spring! 
Here's some helpers if YOU need them.
All available in my TPT Store!
