Lesson Materials Organization

As organized as I usually am, my classroom lesson materials have been in disarray over the last few years, especially as I’ve accumulated more and more items to use with classes. This year, I decided to create a new system for organizing my lesson materials that should save me some time and energy during the school year.

In the past, I would store all of my materials in various bins throughout my office that I would have to sift through whenever I pulled my current month’s materials. I still keep my current supplies in easy to access bins {see below}, but now it is a lot easier for me to find everything each month. Click here to see my original post on organizing my bookshelves.

I made space in my storage cabinet so that each grade level has a tray and a bin for lesson materials. Handouts and books fit perfectly in the trays, and I put all other supplies in the bins {trays and bins are all from the dollar store}.

The biggest change I implemented this year {that I think will save me a lot of time} is that I made copies of ALL handouts I need for lessons throughout the year, and I purchased ALL lesson materials for the whole year as well. Now, I don’t have to constantly think about whether or not I need to make a stop at the dollar store after school for a lesson the next day, and I don’t have to worry about copies for lessons!

I hope these organization tips are helpful! Cheers to the start of a new school year!
