http://clutterfreeclassroom.blogspot.com/p/classroom-themes.html - great ideas!!!!!
I also found an idea that involves scrapbook paper, certificate size picture frames that can be purchased from the dollar stores, and ribbon. A teacher used this to list her objectives for each subject. She had the subject on the scrapbook paper, such as MATH or SCIENCE but then used a dry erase marker to write the objectives on the glass part of the frame! She then used the ribbon to hang it up! When I start this project, I will post pictures!
Idea of the day-Get a LARGE binder and divide it into the months of the year. As you find ideas on the internet or Pinterest or my favorite, Mailbox magazines (I get mine from the library!), print or photocopy the idea/lesson and place it into the correct month of the binder. I started to do this because I went from having a very large filing cabinet to having one with only 2 drawers that barely opened before you put stuff in. As you plan your weeks, you can go through and find centers, worksheets, homework, or other cool classroom ideas! My binder has ideas for K-2 and I hope to get it more organized before it is time to go back.
We also have used FUNDATIONS in 2 of the districts I have worked in so I have a binder of lesson templates and also ideas that I have found to add as a Word Work center or to add to a lesson.
I am also working on my back to school letter and as soon as it is finalized, I will post it in both English and Spanish.
