I hope you’re enjoy the Bright Ideas Linky Party and are loading up on bright ideas!
If you’re like me, you’re a basket hoarder. I can’t help it. Everytime I’m at the Dollar Tree or Deals or Wal-Mart I buy some more baskets. Hey…as I tell the mister…you know I need every.single.one.of.these.baskets. Well, today I am showing you a great way to use those baskets!
One of my favorite activities is Walking, Reading and Writing The Room and Walking, Reading and Counting/Adding/Subtracting The Room! The problem is that it’s hard to keep it organized and easily accessed by my differentiated groups. I tried sitting on the floor. No go. Basket death by little feet. I tried keeping folders behind my desk. Too much time for Mr. Greg. And then it hit me. BAM! It was like a glitter explosion! USE THE WALL!
I placed 1 command hook on the wall and placed the basket on hook. That allowed me to place the second hook in the correct place.
Then I attached basket to the hooks. BAM!
Each basket coordinates with the colors of my literacy groups and math groups. I put the sheets for writing the room in the basket. They can just grab one and go. No more stress!
Howdy, I am Mr. Greg. I have been teaching for 11 years. I spent a year teaching fifth grade, two years in second grade and am now in my 9th year in Kindergarten. Kindergarten is my passion and my calling but honestly, that wasn’t how it started. Read the whole story >
