Mrs. Patton at Patton's Patch is hosting an Organization Week Linky Party. Today's topic is Daily Organization. What teacher couldn't use more help/ideas about organizing! I know I could use a few tips here and there; especially now. I'm packing up my room for Spring Cleaning. Yes, I am getting a deep clean. It happens only once a year.
Here is what I do. I prefer to organize by subject because sometimes what I plan for the day may go onto the next.
I use this letter tray to help organize by subject. I actually organize it in the order I teach throughout the day. Just in case you are wondering, Standards Based Reading and Writing, Math, ELD, Word Study, Science or Social Studies. As I copy things for the week, I just place it in the appropriate spot. The bottom tray keeps my Teacher Resource Books that I may need for future copying.
Another useful item is my Grab N Go Notebook. It makes lesson planning easy because it can be customized to your needs.
I hope you'll join Mrs. Patton's Organizing party. I can't wait to read about organizing for Guided Reading. I really could use a few tips here!
Happy Teaching, Learning and Organizing!
