Classroom Organizing TAKE 1

Well, as many of you know I am headed to a 2nd grade classroom in the fall. It has been bittersweet packing up my classroom for the 3rd year in a row. Every year, I realize I have acquired too much stuff. I did give many things away to some pretty sweet teachers, but I still have tons of stuff. I am trying to stay ahead of the game and organize as I go. After finding some cute ways to “organize” community supplies I pinterest, I decided to take the plunge and organize the crayons and etc. I had laying around. (Okay, I had a whole bin of crayons- What was I thinking…)

I headed over to Lowe’s and picked up some empty quart containers for my “sharp” and “dull” pencils bins.

I already had a few sterilite 5-drawer containers in my room. So I am going to reuse them for my community supplies and my writing supplies.

  4. I am right there with you on being more organized for next year. I also realized that I have way to much stuff, but wasn't able to give a lot of it away before the end of the year, so I will be doing it in the beginning.

  5. I love all of the polka dot stuff! Do you know of a way to make the white dots red? I have ladybugs all over my room and I use a black and red polka dot border from Trend. Any ideas? I am to the point that I think I am going to have to let go of a little OCD and use black and white in addition to the black and red. Thanks for sharing!!

  12. This is such a cute theme! Would there be any way that I could get the original file to translate it to French? I teach French Immersion and I always seem to have trouble finding cute things like this in French.
    Thanks!
