A Few Organizational Bits

As I spend this week setting up my classroom, I just wanted to update you guys on some of the stuff I've created.

I wanted to partake in the tool box > supply organizer that I saw on Pinterest. When I bought it, it was grey, so I spray painted it purple, cut up some argyle and zebra black and white scrapbook paper and got to crafting! 

I also saw this idea on Pinterest...
I took paint chips for the students usernames and passwords for computer logins, then put a 3M hook on the computer and they'll have near them for their independent time. 

And this is my very best friend!!
I made this last year and it was the best help that I could ever imagine. 
Copies made and binder clipped, games and centers laminated, cut, and put in Ziploc baggies- all ready and prepared before I come to school on Monday for the week!! 


  1. I am hoping to go purchase the Lowes' toolbox tomorrow! How much is it!?
    I'm new to blogging and am glad I found yours! Check mine out :)

  2. The toolbox was under $20, I believe it was around $16-$17 and thanks!!

  3. I like the bins you are using for your weekly work. I will have to keep that in mind (if I have space in my classroom. I was thinking of using a folder, but this allows so much more room.
    Great idea. Thank you.
