Recess bins are a big help. These bins are located on the sidewalk by the playground. Our students have recess after they eat lunch. The students leave the cafeteria and go straight out to play. We needed a system to keep up with all the lunch boxes, toys and jackets. Each teacher has their own bin. When the class lines up to go inside, they check the bin to make sure they have all their items. No more lost lunch boxes all over the playground! Genius...
car tags are free so if you are interested in them just help yourself.
The teacher binders are a big help and being used by all teachers. I love this too because we are all organized with lesson plans, meeting notes and schedules. I don't think I could ever not be organized or live without these now. If you are interested in downloading a copy, head over to my store on Teachers Pay Teachers.
I hope you are having a great start to 2014-15. If you have tips you want to share, I would love to hear from you.
