#103: 7 Classroom Organization Tips That Will Save You Time All Year

organization Jul 07, 2022

You don’t need to build your own binder, create cute labels, do elaborate décor,  or spend hours creating or tons of money purchasing décor for your classroom to be organized and ready for the school year.



Don’t get me wrong, I love decorating a classroom. I do. Having a space I enjoy being in makes going to school just that little bit more enjoyable. But it’s not the most important thing!

Today, let’s take a hot second to talk about some essential pieces I do first(like planning routines for an organized classroom), before all that fun décor, that will make your year so much easier.

Listen in to the full episode to find out:

  • What you should be planning long before you plan your classroom layout and decor.
  • Why you need a plan and a routine for things like unfinished work.
  • Which spaces in my classroom I fully set up FIRST.
  • 3 essential routines that can make or break your day.
  • My 7 classroom organization tips that will save you time (and stress) all year.
