Student Supplies

Happy Monday! I am in the process of planning out a new classroom. This terrifies me and excites me to no end! I recently moved from Idaho to Colorado. The biggest thing I have taken away from the move did I get all this stuff? I am pretty sure Jason almost died on the spot when he saw all of my teaching supplies that I just could not live without. OF COURSE....even plastic straws, cotton balls, and used crayons are important. :)

Anyway, on Friday I got to see my new classroom and I am beyond myself. (Allow me to brag for a half sec.) It is a brand new classroom in a brand new building. I have brand new furniture and brand new technology. Did I mention I was excited?

After seeing my room, I of course got to planning right away. I'm not able to work in my room yet since they still need to set up the technology but I have brought home the curriculum and am making room maps and drafting ideas galore.

The first thing I want to figure out is how to store student supplies. I have tables in my new room and I have always had desks in the past. How do I store all of their stuff while making it organized and easily accessible?

Well, I found some pictures that I think will put me on the right track. Let me know what you think and please visit these fabulous ladies.

Now this I get. Every table has their supplies and everyone shares the general supplies. I love the way that Tiffani over at Time for Organization has separated the supplies into cups and I am currently seeing visions of scrapbooked cans. By the way, Tiffani is also giving you those cute little polka dot labels for free!

Here is another table top organization idea from Mrs. Shannon at Mrs. Shannon's First Grade Class. I like the idea of every table having a small garbage can and also a small basket of books for fast finishers. I'm also think having writing notebooks, math journals, or poem folders at the table as well.

Well I am off to do some shopping. I'll let you know what I find. :)

Ta-ta for now! :)
