I'm back in the classroom. I haven't been able to post for a while due to not being allowed in my classroom. Now that we are in there working and preparing for our students I can once again share my quick organizing tips with all my readers. I have a parent volunteer system that I've been using for 20 years now. It is so simple. I use large manila envelopes that have been laminated. I place the prep work, directions and a sample, if necessary inside the envelope. The envelopes are placed in a box outside my classroom door. Parents can sign-out an envelope and return it by the due date. Usually I have prep work that involves cutting, tracing or stapling. Below is what my envelopes look like. I've also included some free decorate labels to attach to the front of your container. Just click the polka dot label to get your freebie.
