Train Wreck and a MOOSE!


Friends~I feel like I have been hit by a train!  I have spent the last 2 days in my classroom cleaning out and organizing.  This is what I saw when I walked up to the door. The custodians love to play little jokes on me.  This is their way of saying I have too much stuff!


I really thinned out my walls today by pulling down old posters and signs.  I moved things around and hopefully made a dent in my files.  I did make these cute sheets for the cover of my MOOSE Folder.  I really wanted to change it up but I couldn't get MOOSE-Management of Organizational Skills Everyday out of my head.  I can't remember where I found the MOOSE idea from exactly.  I know it was on the internet somewhere.  I did peace it up a bit so that it fit in my classroom.  Check it out below!


I am really happy with how they came out!  I added the peace signs for the OO's and their classroom number so that I don't have to label them with stickers!  

I also got my OOPS Book put together!  I made it this year and laminated the cards.  I am planning on using visa vis markers so maybe it will last me a year or 2.  If not, I will add some index cards between the covers.  


You can read more about my OOPS Book by clicking the image above.  

I also grabbed these carts for the end of my table groups.  I am hoping that they will be able to move them around because they have wheels and also grab their supplies from them easily.  

Once I get them all set up I will get you a picture.  They take up much less space than the extra desks I used in the past.  I really am trying to streamline things in the classroom to help with traffic flow.  And so people will stop saying I have soooooo much stuff.  I am starting to get a complex about it.
