1. Write a blog post about one or both of the following:
can be something that you’ve used in the past that has worked well, or
something you are developing this summer for next year. One idea is
fine, as this will be a weekly linky party.
a find you scored when out and about shopping during the summer. Bins,
binders, folders, containers…any of those items that make a huge
difference in our classroom organization and management.
2. Grab a button for your blog post:
Link on up! You can join the party on Elizabeth’s blog or mine…it’s
all the same party so come on over. We’ll be hosting each Saturday this

I know I’ve blogged and blogged about cleaning out and decluttering over the years. Every June, I feel a sense of achievement…like I’ve finally overcome the clutter for good and that’s that.
Then I come back at the end of the summer wondering, “how do I still have SO much stuff?”
I think I’m finally figuring it out and getting down to the bare essentials. And I want to share a few things that have worked for me in really streamlining my classroom.
I have a small shelf for my teaching books now and all of my files are being saved on my iPad and computer.
Instead of storing tons of little game cards for activities I only use once a year during a particular unit, I just print out exactly
what I need for a particular lesson and then recycle it when finished. It’s stored on my computer and doesn’t need to be in my classroom eating up space.
