Texas Size Link-Up {Organization Tips}

Good morning y'all!  It's Friday ... that totally has a different meaning during the summer doesn't it?!?!  Anyways...this fantastical Friday I'm linking up with The Little Ladybug Shop and Planet Happy Smiles for their Texas Size Link-Up.  This week I'm sharing some organizational tips with you guys.

Tip #1

Do you have to post your daily objectives every day?  I do and I was so so tired of having to write the subject areas over and over again.  I printed out these polka dot labels and then I laminated them.  After they were cut out and ready to go, I attached magnets to the back and then placed them on my dry-erase board.  Now, I have an area to write my objectives for each day.

Tip #2

I love math manipulatives but I NEED them to be organized.  I do love the plastic sectioned containers that some teachers store their base ten blocks in but I decided to do something a little different.  I just use ziploc baggies and when they get yucky looking, they are super easy to replace.

We store them in these green tubs that I got at 99 Cents Only Store.  Do they have those anywhere else besides Houston?  The kids have a number and at the beginning of math class, they can easily grab their math tub.

Tip #3

My last tip will help you organize dismissal.  I love my ribbon display chart because the kids can easily move their name when their transportation changes.  And...we all know that transportation changes happen often!

I have them in 8 different color options to match your classroom decor.

Ready for the best part?!?!  You can win your very own set of these turquoise labels.  I have them printed out and ready to go for the winner!  I'll also send you the file, so you can type in your students' names on the labels.
