More Room Updates and Storage Ideas

Day 2 in my classroom!  Today was not a very glamorous day.  It was moving desks, wiping desks, and organizing books.  

Last year I discovered this desk arrangement and have LOVED using it.  We use the top drawer for math books, middle drawer for writing folders, and bottom drawer for science or social studies books/folders.  In their desks they keep one notebook, one folder, their take home binder, and a pencil box ONLY.  I really don't feel like they can handle anymore than that without it being a disaster.

I also put away my centers from the end of the year and got out the beginning of the year centers.   I put each center into a ziplock bag and then they go into a hanging file folder for what month they apply to. 

I have through Christmas taken care of...

and ALL of 1st grade!!

Last year I used binders for housing my printables and I once again fell in LOVE.  SO much easier than files. Here is my Back to School binder.  So easy to flip through and take to the copy room with me!

In fact I bought a ton of 1/2 binders to house the rest of my Busy Teachers in today!!

I have Busy Teachers for every month K-2! Don't forget tonight is the last  night to save BIG!

Phew- now to relax before I head back to school tomorrow to finish up (hopefully!)

  1. I love your desk arraignments! I don't know if I have enough room for that in my room but it looks great and useful. I am also going to be putting my centers into file folders in my cabinet. It's a great way to store them all!

  3. I love your desk setup! I am always trying to figure out which side of the group my plastic drawers should go on. I don't know why it never occurred to me to do it like this! I think I just may have to steal this idea when I move desks this weekend!

  4. 바카라사이트 Fantastic blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little
    lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid
    option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused ..
    Any suggestions? Many thanks!
