I have to admit Organization kind of makes my head spin. I see ah-mazing pins of data binders, teacher organizers and color-coded plastic bins and I get a little light headed.
So, last year my goal was not to be the Clutter Queen (it's much cuter than Hoarder Chick or Pile Girl).
I give myself a B- on last year's project. I've learned that "IF" I have a system set up or "home" for supplies, it's much easier to stay organized.
So, this year's goal...
Since, I finally have an organization tip -
I'm going to link up with two amazing bloggers and their Optimum Organization Linky Party.
Topic # 1: RtI
A.K.A. Response to Intervention.
I've been thinking about this since
January May. I have 3 classes that I see throughout the day and I keep track of Reading RtI for 67ish Kiddos at all times. I also give fluency assessments every 3 weeks.
Last year, I did an
almost average job at RtI. Sometime in January, I realized that I needed a schedule for RtI (that will be later in the post) and I better organization system for paperwork. Our school does have a decent system for tracking data.
I do small grouping at my teacher table and I have a ton of stuff in my bookshelf.
When SmileMakers contacted me and said I could pick (almost) anything to review, I knew I was headed straight for organization! What did I find?
Look at this...it has 3 compartments, drawers and it even matched my classroom color scheme. SCORE.
This big, flat box arrived the day I returned from vacation...perfect timing! I opened the box and decided I had to get off vacation time to put it together. It only took me around 20 min. to put it together.
I've found a few pins that will give you more insight as to how I plan to use the Classroom Keepers Management Center.
I love, love, love the first pin. I can so do this! We have to turn in progress reports every 2 week and this will help me keep up with paperwork. Each class period, I see 2 groups of RtI students. Each student has a folder. It holds their guided reading book, a graphic organizer, comprehension questions, a vocabulary worksheet, sight word flashcards and a fluency passage. The Classroom Keepers Management Center will easily organize me!
