Back-to-School Blog Hop

I'm linking up with some of my favorite 
3rd and 4th grade 
blogging buddies
Follow the blog hop all the way through, and there's
a Giveaway at the end!

Grab a cup of coffee or a cold one
and get ready for some Back-to-School
tips and FREEBIES!

Organization is paramount in my classroom.
To make things easier for me and for my students,
each student has a number.
They use these numbers for lining up, turning in work,
supplies, book baskets, etc.

It makes keeping track of things a LOT easier.
When I get a new student they get a new number or one that a former student had.
Instead of names for things like the Job Chart and my Student Sticks
I use numbers.
It works well for me!

Something new that I am trying this year is
instead of one turn in basket for completed work,
I am going to have two.
One for completed work, and one for those who need more time to work.

I made these cute little signs for my turn-in baskets.
I just ♥ them!
Graphics are by the amazing Nikki from Melonheadz
and the border is from one of my other faves Creative Clips.
Would you like copies too?
Click on the images below to grab yours.
Just insert them into a Word or PowerPoint document 
and you are ready to go!

I also have been working on this for the wall above my Classroom Library.
It took a lot of finagling, but I finally got it to work!
So here's another little goody for you.

  5. Your signs are really cute. I like the idea of turning in work, even when it's not quite finished. It's a good way to check in on progress.
