I am excited to start being a part of a linky party with Farley, which means I can post an item from TpT that I LOVE at the beginning of each month. So, here's my Currently for August:
This is the first year in four years of teaching that I know more than two weeks before the beginning of the school year that I have a job. So, I actually have time to organize in my brain what my classroom will look like, think about procedures, and lesson plan before the school year starts. I am getting a little overwhelmed with all of the ideas running through my head, and can't wait to start designing my classroom!
I have already posted some ideas I have adapted from Pinterest in previous posts, and there will definitely be more to come once I am finished decorating my classroom. So, let's jump down to B2S must haves:
1) Magazine Files - This is my attempt to organize all of the papers I will use on a daily/weekly basis. My goal this year is to be more organized so I don't spend the first two months of the school year trying to figure out where I put everything!
2) New SHOES - Every year I go through my closet, throw out the clothes I have exhausted throughout the previous school year, and spend a few hundred dollars on new work clothes! This is my gift to myself to "feel" like this year is going to be the best yet.
3) Teacher Toolbox - I have seen these all over Pinterest and just HAVE to have one! This is the must-have that I have yet to get, but I have already found the labels I am going to use once I get the toolbox. My classroom will be a jungle theme this year, so I decided to go with these from Hedrich's Hive:

I can't wait to get them printed out so I can find everything I need in one place without having to spend forever digging through my desk drawers!
