Organize It Tuesday!
Being organized is a difficult task. One minute everything is in its place, and then in a blink of an eye you cannot find your desk. One of the hardest things for me to keep organized in my classroom is my learning centers. I have found a wonderful way to keep everything in its place, and give students some of the responsibility! I created center cards for each area. I took pictures of how I wanted the centers to look at clean up time. I put them in a file folder, laminated the folders, and placed them in the corresponding centers. At clean up time, students pull out the cards and check to make sure things are put away correctly! This has been FABULOUS for my classroom! If you have trouble with students putting things away correctly, creating task cards for them to use may be the answer to your troubles! Happy Organizing! :)
