Optimum Organization 6.16.13

We just wrapped our school year this week and boy were we busy!!  We cleaned out a whole bunch of stuff!  It is going to feel so good going back in August to a clean, organized classroom!  One of our big projects was to get ready for word work next year.  We spent time before the last days getting our Word Work Resource Packet prepped....printed, laminated, cut.  It was time to get it all organized in one place.  Tamra made us some great labels for file folders and envelopes to hold all the pieces by spelling pattern.  We are going to LOVE having this ready to go next year!

Word Sort

Write/Read the Room

Recording Sheets, Journal Pages, Word Sorts, Making Words

All Organized Into a File Bin and ...

.... Stored Away for Next Year!

Here is our BIG Word Work Packet!!  It is on sale this weekend!!

Here's one more organizational tool we found on Pinterest for next year.  We love this handy communication resource!


  1. Great job, ladies! I must head over to that linky to check out the organization going on. Love your file tub tip. I have a couple of those here at home that I can use in just that way... :0)

    1. They are wonderful. We use them for all kinds of things. The great thing is that you don't always have to use hanging folders, you can just use file folders. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Wow! You guys have been busy! I love how you organized all of your word work. It's giving me inspiration to head up to school and seriously organize my math stations. Thanks for linking up :)

    1. Organization is definitely helpful during the crazy school year!

  3. The Parent Communication Log is the handiest I've seen. It took me a while to track it down but it's originally from Confessions of a Primary Teacher and is a freebie in herTPT store (Mrs. Kilby ). Thanks for sharing.

  4. I agree in 100%. You have put it all together.
