--I always feel like I walk around like a chicken with her head cut off especially when I am not sure of what room or even what grade I am teaching! Grrrr!!!---
Well, getting back to my point, I went to IKEA to look for some less expensive versions of things I drool over in places like The Container Store and boxes to store centers that I plan to start working on this upcoming week for next year.
I have been scouring blogs and Teachers Pay Teachers for ideas and materials and trying to come up with some of my own which would again be much easier if I knew what grade I was teaching next year!!!!
Again I digress. I found a bunch of different things that I have put in my to buy list (which will again be on hold until I know what and where I am teaching, humphhhh).
|These blue bins are sturdy plastic and see through and would be great to put in my mentor texts and accompanying activities. (Once I get those up and running).|
|These black bins would be great to organize my math manipulatives so that I would not have them all out at once on the shelves and only shelve the manipulatives we are currectly using.|
|These big clear bins would be a great place for my students bookbags during the year and then at the end of the year as great storage for my classroom library books.|
Well I didn't buy any of these....YET, I will wait on the powers that be to decide my fate and then plan another trip to the IKEA. Sigh....
Though to make myself feel better I did buy these:
These lovely magazine organizers will be what I use to store some of the center games that I will start working on this week and I think I may even start putting in pics on this blog to keep me motivated and honest.
I will also decorate them and unleash my inner crafty girl. ;)
