Would you like to join us?
Here are the steps...
1. Write a blog post about one or both of the following:
An Organizational Idea
This can be something that you've used in the past that has worked well, or something you are developing this summer for next year. One idea is fine, as this will be a weekly linky party.
An Organizational Find
Share a find you scored when shopping this summer (binders, bins, folders, containers, magnetic boards, etc.) that will make a huge difference in your classroom organization and management.
2. Grab a button for your blog post:
3. Link on up! You can join the party on Kristen's blog or mine...it's all the same party so come on over!
4. The Fine Print! We do have a couple of rules for this linky, as shown below.
The purpose of this linky party is to provide new and veteran teachers a chance to come together and share ideas on how to get organized for a new school year. Please join us and share your advice and expertise, but not links to products please. Please share new posts in which you are participating in the party, not links to older posts or labels on your blog. Thanks so much for understanding!
Now on to my ideas for the week. These are simple again seeing as I was knee deep in "end of the year chaos" last week.
But, I found this:
Another organizational tool that I'm going to share is my love for Dropbox.
Have you heard of Dropbox? If not this is my "Organizational Find" of the day for you!
Basically it is a shared directory in the sky. You can share folders with other people, too. For example, I have two shared folders that I use all of the time. I have a "Fourth Grade" file where we keep all things related to all of us in 4th grade. Back to school files, end of the year files...basically anything that we share. Then, I have a "Fourth Grade Math" file where the two teachers who teach math (me and my math partner in crime) keep all files that we share for math: videos, my lapbook files, notes, all foldables, etc.
I started using Dropbox last summer and it has been a life saver. I can access all of the files where ever I go...my computer at school, my laptop at home, my iPad, my iPhone...it's awesome! You should check it out. Just click on the picture above and you can go through a tour to find out more. Just click on "Take a tour" once you get to the page.
So there you have it...two basic organizational ideas for this week. Next week, I hope to show you more since I'm officially on Summer Break!
