The organization frenzy continues! Today I'm going to show you what I do with the papers I need to give my students and/or use in lessons.
If you are just joining in on the series you can get your organization on here: part 1, part 2, and part 3.
There are two parts to this system: a 3-drawer box and a hanging file organizer.
We'll start out with the 3-drawer box. This is where I store papers until I'm ready to use them with my students. As soon as I copy something I put it in the corresponding subject drawer. I used my Silhouette Cameo and some vinyl to create some fun labels for each of the drawers.
The other part of the system involves this hanging file folder chart.
Every afternoon before I leave school I open my lesson plans and check to see what papers I'll need for the next day's lessons. I pull them out of the 3-drawer box and put them in the pockets in the order I'll use them (nerdy I know, but that's just how I roll).
This chart is really sturdy and can hold a lot of papers. You can see in this picture it even has room for our Studies Weekly newspapers. I also use it to keep foldable examples and lesson pages I might need throughout the day. Just like last week, the whole goal here is to keep the papers off my desk!
It keeps all my papers out of the way and helps me to stay on track with what we will be doing next.
What paper "tricks" do you use in your classroom?
