Get Organized

1.Get more stuff organized so students can access it without my assistance.
I have lots of stuff, so I am weeding out, giving away, and finding new ways to put things away. I just got home from Target where I spent $200. Okay not all of it was for organizing. But I did buy ahead on a couple of items that I don't want to run out of like makeup:)

 2. To give back by helping the teachers on my floor. 
My best friend and aide for five years is moving across the hall with her own class of 4 year olds. Also, I have a brand new teacher moving in next door to teach kindergarten with me. It will be an adventure for sure.

The top picture was last year's attempt at getting my word work cards organized.  It was okay, but not very sturdy.  Also, I still had lots of card sets without a home.
 This year I purchased a bunch of clear pencil cases for binders.  Can you see the difference?

Get Well Freebie

Freebie Fridays

I don't know about your part of the country, but last year we had a lot of sick kids in our classroom.
I had more kids throwing up in the first month of school than I had in 10 years of teaching. It did not get much better as the year progressed, despite all the disinfectants.

So today freebie is some get well clipart.  There is a version for public and parochial schools.  
I just ask that you give me credit as such:

Fourth Freebie

I am celebrating the Fourth with a Freebie

Much of the clipart that I have found on the internet does not include all 50 stars and 13 stripes.  As a teacher, I believe it is important that clipart used in education reflect the important features of our country's symbols.  So here is a quick freebie to celebrate our freedom.
