It's a Random Monday Post

This post includes 3 different things: an organizational suggestion, a blogger feature, and a new product feature for 1st grade teachers. 


During the week, I am writing my lesson plans and gathering resources and centers activities for my kids. I put all of my paperwork that I'll use in a basket. On Thursday, I have one of my old room moms from my very first year come in to help me with copies. Then I sort them out. 

After they are sorted, I stick them back into the organizers and all stacks of paper are out of the way for the entire week. 
Stacks of copies for:
Morning work, centers, spelling list, newsletter, math practice, early finishers packets, Language practice etc. 

I look at my lesson plans, and according to my day's plans, I put those copies into the planned day. 

Blogger Feature: 
Ashley Hughes at School Supply Addict has featured me on her blog today. 
She has become my newest favorite clip artist, so this is truly an honor for her to feature me.
She is a fellow Kentucky girl, so you should definitely check her blog and TPT store out!! 

Check out Ashley's blog and TPT!
