I am linking up with Kristen over at Ladybug’s Teacher Files for her and Elizabeth’s Optimum Organization Linky Party!
The ladies are asking:
What are some of your favourite organizational tools?
Here are some of mine!
1. My Math Daily 5 Bins
These have totally helped my kids in finding their activities and putting everything back neatly and independently! I also like how they are big because lots of our activities have manipulatives and these bins are the perfect size to store anything and everything!
2. My Supply Bins
These bins how all those weird supplies we as grade 1 teachers collect. Toothpicks, cups, beads, yarn, balloons, felt, foam pieces….etc…..etc..
You never know when you might need a pompom right? Just today another teacher came by and said “ I need some Q-tips!! You have those right?” Well I didn’t…but I thought that would be a good addition!
3. My Job Organizers
These are new this year to my room! I was always making piles and putting things everywhere and forgetting where stuff was or what needed to be done. Now I have 5 bins at the front of my room….when I can’t to jobs right away…..they go in their bin until I can do it! They are wider as well then other bins, so they fit cardstock nice!
How to YOU organize?? Link up!
On another note…..we have been learning about the artist Joan Miro in Art. We looked at his style or art…discussed his pieces and then created some of our own works like Miro!
We used this awesome Roll a Miro Game to start off! (not my idea….found on Pinterest)
My plan was to make sculptures with them….but our paper was too flimsy…ah well..next time!
