Sorry...but I've been busy, I know you know what I'm talking about. It is a little hectic right before the holiday break, and then you get this GLORIOUS vacation when you don't have to work...right?
No, that is when you have to work on your home, because that is what you neglect the other 9 months of the year.
OK...so I'm really excited to participate in the Clutter-Free Classroom's Clutter-free Classroom Project
I am a fairly new teacher, so I don't have a lot of "stuff". This is both a blessing and an expensive hardship. I also don't have my own children yet, so I still care that all my classroom things look nice and match. I'm told that problem will be cured when I have my own children to worry about.
Anyway...here is my clutter-FUL cabinets and cubbies.
I use the large doors for my word wall. I had to expand it a little, however, and now the right is RLA, left is Math, and the two little cabinets to the right is Science and Social Studies.
|Random Boxes, Bag of Class TShirts, and a lot of old teaching resources that "We still use".|
|Paint and chemicals that I'm not really supposed to have...I mean you know how dangerous LYSOL is right! and the health text books that "We Still Use"|
|This is probably the most used area in my classroom. Bandaides and all types of bags on the left,|
Glue Gun, Label Maker, Clothespins, various envelopes, and extension cord on the right.
|Sorry it is a little blurry...student cubbies are the bottom 2 rows. We clean everything out of our desks every 2 weeks or so. This keeps us very clean and I have so many less bugs than everyone else...|
|This is more student supplies, with my junk on top|
|The Command Center...i.e. My Poor Desk. It is more organized than it looks.|
|Student files on left, random daily files on right|
|top desk drawer|
Ok...now I'm ready to go...I'm going to declutter and simplify my space. I love it! Join the Linky Party if you haven't yet and check out everyone else's clutter!
