I promise I'm not going to be a Monday only blogger all summer. I will blog about other things and ideas.
But I do love me some Monday Made It!
This week I revamped something from last year.
This is one of my favorite things in my classroom. I was pleasantly surprise at how much it helps me stay organized.
I have a tray for each of the five days of the week plus one for next week.
When I have made my copies for the upcoming lessons I simply binder clip them and put in the appropriate tray.
I always know where my papers are now whereas before I could never remember where I sat them. They were constantly getting buried under other papers on my desk.
It also makes it very easy for a sub. There is no question about which stack of papers my lesson plans are referring to. I simply tell my sub which tray they are in.
Anyway. I used scrapbook stickers to add the days to each tray. While they worked pretty well, a few letters kept falling off.
I decided to change it up and add some chevron. My classroom this next year is going to be on chevron overload. I can't wait!
I hadn't planned on repainting them, but they had gotten scratched up in the move. I used regular spray paint last time. This time I used spray paint designed for plastic surfaces.
I love the blue! I just printed the days of the week on scrapbook paper and taped them to the inside of each drawer.
I love them so much more now!
