So I haven’t been writing in my blog this summer. What have I been doing? (You know, besides drinking cold chardonnays in the evenings, reading books, sleeping in, and organizing my house a tiny bit each day?)
I have been PINTERESTING. Man, I am in love with that site. I love to check out what is new under the general heading of Education, and sometimes I’ll be more specific (“classroom organization,” “teacher desk,” “preschool education,” etc.). I have found some great stuff, and want to share some of it with you.
Here are a few things I have on my personal board that I’ve labeled “Classroom Organization.”
First, from a blog called First Grade Blue Skies, here is a great way to organize your classroom cut-out letters. I put mine in big envelopes, but then I pile them up in a cupboard and forget I have them. This is much more accessible.
I might also organize them by type of letter, but her way might still be more efficient.
The next great idea comes from The Very Busy Kindergarten.
This is not the image of the completed project; for some reason I couldn’t make that work, so please click this link to check out her post about how to organize scrap paper for your art center by color. I loooove this idea. My art center has never been well-organized, but this might be the thing to get our art center working.
More great ideas for teachers from Pinterest tomorrow!
