Organizational Tips & Tools: A Linky Party!

Hi everyone!
I hope you are enjoying the first days of summer! If you're still in school, then bless your heart :) I have been out of school for a couple of weeks now, and I'm enjoying every minute of it...I already have TONS of ideas swirling around in my head for next year {thanks, Pinterest}!


One of the biggest issues I have in my classroom every.single.year is organization. I do everything that I possibly can to make sure that my classroom stays neat and organized, but MAN is it a job! I'm linking up with The Primary Peach to share one of my most favorite organizational tips! Be sure to head over to link up {after you read my post, of course ;)}!


You can usually find at least 5 stacks of papers on my desk at any given time. Most days, I feel like I'm swimming in a sea of paperwork! One thing that I have always done is keep drawers on the bookshelf behind my desk to hold my materials for each week.


I have 2 sets of these drawers, and I label them with the days of the week. I keep all materials for each day inside the drawer - read alouds, copies, assessments, etc. Everything needed to teach on Monday is in the Monday drawer. That way, if for some reason I am ever out unexpectedly {we all know it happens!}, I don't have to worry about a sub scrambling for something to do. Before I leave on Friday afternoon, I make sure that my drawers are full for the next week. I have used this system for the last 7 years, and it definitely helps me stay more organized! I love that the drawers are the perfect size to hold papers as well as books and any other materials that I need.


For making it through my entire post, I've got a little *freebie* to share :) I revamped my drawer labels and am sharing them with you today! Just click on the image below to head over to my TPT store to download the labels. I hope that this idea will help you be more organized in your classroom!
