Ahhh….New Year’s…the time for new beginnings. Time for reflecting on the year soon to pass and look at the year ahead with hope and excitement! As teachers, we are ALWAYS looking for ways to be more organized! How can we leave at the end of the day and not have a pile or multiple piles, on our desk, on our small group table, wherever we can pile them really?!
I think that we start with GREAT intentions, but then life happens and we get distracted. We go into our classroom after a long break and start tossing, piling, and then we end up with a bigger mess than when we started. Eeeeekkk!! If you read my blog or follow my Facebook page and Instagram, then you know that I am also on a weight loss journey. I kind of look at this the same way. I can’t go into this making extreme changes. I need to be realistic and set myself up for success and not doom myself for failure.
So, I have decided that in 2015, I will take one area and completely overhaul and organize myself. I will FINISH this BEFORE I start on another. I can do that in one month, right?! lol! We don’t want too many things happening at once. I hope that you will follow along and join me on this organizing journey!! I LOVE looking at other classrooms. We can share ideas and support each through blogs, Facebook, Instagram and even Pinterest!
On Facebook, we can discuss with each other our ideas…what is working, what isn’t working, where did you find THAT?! I can always post there what each month’s challenge will be.
On Instagram, we can share photos…before photos, during, after, etc! As teachers, we never have enough time to visit other teacher’s classrooms…well, we can do it through Instagram! On Instagram, use the hashtag #TeachersGetOrganized2015 and tag me so I can follow you. You can tag me by typing @LiveLoveLaughKindergarten.
On Pinterest, we can share products that we love to help us organize!!
Here is what I am thinking so far. This is definitely not set in stone 🙂
I hope you will join me on my organization quest!! 🙂
