Teacher friends, do you LOVE organizing your space like I do? (Shoutout to my fellow Home Edit fans!)
Or, does the thought of organizing send you running the other way? Are you thinking there’s no way you can “organize” when you aren’t in a science classroom, you have no storage, or you’re a floater who only has a cart?
You all know how much I love all things organization and I am sharing some of my favorite organization tips and recommendations with you to help make your teaching space (whatever that space may be) efficient and welcoming. It’s not about creating a Pinterest-perfect classroom. It’s about setting up a space that makes you and your students feel calm, and can move freely.
I have spent time teaching in several settings and have learned so much about how to best use the space I have. Today, I am sharing some of the things I’ve learned with you!
We are looking at how to use the front of your classroom most effectively, suggestions for having an organized turn in area, how to make class necessities easily accessible, and some advice specifically for floaters.
PLUS, I’m sharing two bonus recommendations on how to help manage cellphones in the classroom and how to organize YOUR files.
