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.
