Classroom Organization Blog Hop!

 Welcome to Creative Lesson Cafe Friends! I'm really excited to be part of this blog hop with my friends at Primary Powers. We are here to save the day with some SUPER ideas for organization! Be sure to complete the entire hop for some special surprises along the way! I'm here to share ideas for organizing your teaching resources and important papers.

My classroom appears very organized. I try to manage the great paper shuffle as best I can with plenty of storage containers, plastic drawers, files, labels and bins.

 But...what is inside some closed drawers is a problem. One disastrous area is my file cabinet. My cabinet is completely stuffed with unit files and favorite teaching resources that I want to save, but that I don't use on a regular basis. It's REALLY frustrating to file new things away or browse through files when they are so packed in together. My cabinet is in good condition, but still it's an eyesore I want to eventually hide away in my storage closet.

If you are looking for a great way to easily organize your favorite and most-used masters and resources, you may want to invest in a few hanging file tubs. I did!

 I am getting ORGANIZED one subject at a time! 

Each subject area will eventually have its own file tub. 
 One is going to be my assessment bin.

Target carries these fantastic clear containers with lids.
{Room Essentials Box File} I ordered six of them.

Because they are see-through boxes, I wanted some pretty hanging folders. The Container Store sells bright folders in a rainbow of colors and I ordered a set of each to coordinate with the tub signs. Inside, I have decided to organize by skills and units.

I made some square signs that fit perfectly on the front of the box! If you want to get organized with some tubs too, you can download a set of the signs {here}! They should look great on any size file box you happen to have or purchase. 

 Just imagine how cute these new handy tubs- set up in a rainbow of organization- will look in my teacher corner! I can't wait to get them all done and finally put an END to the file cabinet frustrations!

Hopefully this post has given you some cute inspiration to continue to work at being as organized as possible with the great paper shuffle too! 

Your next stop in the hop is to see my friend Sarah at A Sunny Day in First Grade!

  7. I love these tub signs and have printed and laminated them already. I am on maternity leave at the moment and sorting through my endless supply of resources. Just wondering though if you would have an editable one (I would even pay for it lol) because I have a few other boxes I sort things into and really want them to match :)
