Classroom Organization Answered

Back to school is quickly approaching, which means teachers are heading back to set up their classrooms, unpack and reorganize books and supplies, and start planning for the new group of students. If you're like me, then you are also redesigning your whole classroom furniture layout. ;D

Every teacher I know seems to have a system, so I thought it would be fun to share our favorite tips and tricks for keeping it all organized.

Do you use baskets and bins or folders and binders? Paper calendar or all digital?

How do your students turn in their work? Mailboxes, hand-made sorters, or letter trays for each class period?

How do you show off student work? Do you use student portfolios, bulletin boards, a hanging space, or the classroom windows?

What about:

  • Lesson Plans
  • The Class Library or Guided Reading Area
  • Math Centers
  • STEM Resources
  • Classroom Jobs
  • Substitute Teacher Plans
  • Table Caddies

This is also a great opportunity to get inspired and plan your project ideas for the Classroom Organization Challenge that starts August 5th. :D
