Hey everyone!! How have my New England friends weathered the storm? We saw quite a bit of snow in my town...
Back to storage!
Remember these drawers I talked about this past summer?
Well, they've been a godsend this year! They turned out to be the perfect size for binders, books, writing materials...all of the essential supplies we need to store creatively, since we don't have desks in our class.
There was only one little issue with these lovely drawers...constant traffic jams! Even when I separated the stacks of drawers, I still had nine students traveling to one place.
So (and if you know me well, this won't come as a surprise at all) I bought some more!
For two reasons really.
The drawers are PERFECT and I wanted to store even more with them. So we now have a drawer for books and writing materials (just as before) and also a new drawer...one to store papers going home and student binders:
I could not be happier with this setup! Each student has two drawers and can keep track of which materials to store where with the labels, as shown below:
(does that picture make you feel dizzy? I debated on whether or not to include it. I was trying to be all photographerish, sorry!)
I LOVE them! They are neat, organized, and take up very little space.
I've made some other refinements to our room (which is really just a fancy way of saying I've bought some more things) and I promise to share these very soon. I think I do this every year...it's almost like a second wave of classroom setup--setup, take two!
So. Did you get a lot of snow? Or is it really hot and sunny where you are? (don't tell me if so, joking!) Do you evolve your organizational system as the year progresses? (also a fancy way of saying you shop as much as I do) Thanks for stopping by!
