Get the clutter off your desk by having a place for all of your prepped materials.
I try to plan ahead as much as possible and I don’t want to store all the stuff on my desk so I have made a place to put everything.
I use one folder for each day of the week and this is where I keep all my prep stuff.
I prefer the magazine folders over the file folders because they can hold more things. Here is a link to folders I recommend (aff. link) .
Last year I had just the file folders on my desk and they would get knocked off and everything would be all over. I also didn’t like that they took up so much room on my desk.
I put my magazine folders on the shelf behind my desk so my desk is not cluttered.
These are great for if you have a guest teacher in your classroom or if you are unexpectedly away. It is easy for other people to find the materials you had planned.
Here are the labels I made and you can get them for FREE by clicking here! I hope you can use them.
