Organizing Your Classroom

With my recent move, I thought I would do a short series on organizing your classroom. How do you get this.....

          AND these.....

looking like an organized classroom--ready for students.

There are some really neat classroom organizing tools out there for those people that like to see it on paper first. One is the Classroom Setup Tool from Scholastic.

So now time to think about:

  • setting up my classroom library
  • large group area
  • small group area(s)
  • seating arrangement
  • wall displays
  • "my space"
  • storage
I am old fashion I guess you might say.  I still make lists, draw out my classroom maybe I should say-I just get in the classroom and move furniture and stuff around (usually with the help of my sister). This year I will not have that privilege because we are 4 1/2 hours away from one another. So I guess I will be getting in shape (or not moving as much stuff). I will be placing things where I want it from the start.  I have conferred with her on class arrangement (as I always do-she just will not be here to see in person-I will have to describe and take pics.)
Oh- I made this freebie circles that spell out WELCOME. I am going to use this somewhere either in the hallway or in my classroom.

Stay tuned for more pics and progress!
