And here we are just a few short hours (more like 150!) later...
The scary part is I got rid of my teacher desk completely! I was a little nervous about that, but I actually feel much more organized than before.
I bought a couple things to put behind my desk that Fletch helped me showcase a week or so ago...
I'm using the black drawers for the things I used to keep in the drawers in my desk. The hanging files replace the hanging file drawer in my old desk, the one I call The Black Hole. Among other things I keep items in these files that I take away from students...only to be returned on the last day of school.
The tall cart I labeled with the days of the week. I am going to use this for my copies for the week.
And I just had to have one of those toolboxes that you see all over Pinterest!
I am already loving this! My desk drawers were never this organized!
You can find my Editable Toolbox Labels at my TPT Store!
I also made a new Late Work board for my desk. I bought an inexpensive picture frame and covered the picture that came in it with a leftover scrap of fabric from my bulletin boards and attached my sign to the frame. Voila!
When students have a late assignment, I write it on a little sticky note and stick it on the glass. When they turn it in, I take the sticky note off and attach it to their paper.
I have added the Late Work sign along with the days of the week I used on my cart to my Classroom Labels Set which is free in my TPT Store!
I'll share more of my room in the days to come, hopefully after I have gotten over my back-to-school jitters! I am always so anxious up until that moment when my kids walk in the door. I think I am more nervous than the students, even after all these years! Do you still get those butterflies before your first day?
