I am so sorry I am late with this! I have had one of those 24 hour viruses this weekend and on top of that, we are heading in to our last week of school so it has been paperwork galore for me.
So, because of the paperwork mentioned above, this is going to be a very quick one for me this week!
And it’s all about baskets.
Because baskets have really helped me keep things in order this school year. These baskets in particular…
(from Really Good Stuff)
I’ve had them for years and have loved them so much, I picked up new colors to add to my blue last year…
What I love most about them (besides the fact they are rugged and the colors are great!) is that I can use them in all aspects of my classroom organization…baskets for my paperwork, baskets for my students’ paperwork. As long as I have a basket for every aspect of paperwork I can think of, things seem to stay so much more organized (speaking as a somewhat-reformed-paper-stacker…is there ever a true cure for that??)
Here are the ways I have used them this year:
(so I had a place for homework assignments as I ran them off)
(where I stored the students’ work to be passed out during the week)
(this is the place where my students passed in their assignments)
I don’t have a photo for this one, I’m sorry (hate when that happens!). I use any extra baskets for organizational needs that may come up during the year.
Most recently, I have set up baskets to help manage the end of the year madness: Assessments, Permission Slips, and End of the Year paperwork. This has helped me keep everything in order during that last rush of paperwork frenzy 🙂
