I don't know about you, but the thought of Back to School has fried my brain. I'm exhausted thinking about it. So here are a few tips to help you get off to a great start for the new year. 




If you have read any of my posts in the past you may have noticed that I am not the most organized teacher in the world. I'm that teacher that has a desk overflowing with stuff...I'd like to say that it is organized chaos. But to be honest, usually it is just chaos.

That is until this past year, when I made my Teacher's Tool Box! This helped with my organization so much, and it even matched my classroom theme! 

Surprisingly, for most of the year my desk looked like this! Not sure how I managed it, but I did!




If you like my toolbox, you can pick it up HERE.



Laminating poems, saves a ton of time each year. Instead of having to write out the poem over and over again. Just wipe off the white board marker. (HINT: If the wipe board marker doesn't come off easily, try a little bit of rubbing alcohol.)

Of course, than there is the problem of storing all of your poems and anchor charts. Tape a plastic hanger to the back of the laminated chart and hang on a hook, old pocket chart stands work great. (HINT: children's clothing stores will usually give away the hangers for free.)




Collect plastic fruit trays. They are an inexpensive way to organize almost anything! 







Do you use writing folders? Make sure you SNAG these free writing folders! FOUR different designs!




These folders are great for showing how each student is different. The folders have both boys and girls, glasses and no glasses. They are also black and white which, allows students an opportunity to colour and make there boy or girl look like them.
