Made It Monday: Organizer

Today is my first day back in my classroom. I will be busy busy busy getting this room back in order. After today, there will be many meetings and getting prepped for Kindergarten Open House & Meet the Teacher later this week! Here is what it looked like when I entered my classroom:

This is from the main door.

This is also from the main door.

This is the view from the planning room door. On the counter is my first rounnd of stuff brought back to school from home.

Since everyone has been making these great organizers, I was inspired to make my own. I really like the ones with the larger drawers, but it stood taller than what my cabinet would hold. So I went with the one that would fit in my cabinet. I got mine at Lowe's. When I went to Joann Fabric's the next day, I saw similiar containers doubled the price!! My organizer labels are not quite done. I have to figure out what will fit in my organizer box.

I also created one of these for my How We Go Home chart! I love it!! I got it from Beg, Borrow, & Steal's site.

I velcroed the going home circles to my ribbon. I will use clothespins with names to show how children go home. Since some go home different ways on different days, I will keep my own schedule in my teacher binder. Each morning, I will move the clips that need to change.

I am looking forward to getting my room set up, especially with all the inspiration from my bloggy friends! Click below to see more creations by others.

Have a wonderful day!
