Teacher Tip Linky Party!

Hi Friends!!!I am linking up with Miss Kindergarten for a teaching tip linky party. Even though I've been teaching for 12 years, I still love reading everyone's tips. I've found so many really amazing ideas that I will definitely try out in my classroom... it's so important to change things up every once in a while! =)

My teaching tips are pretty simple, but they took a few years to actually figure out.

Tip 1. A label maker is your best friend! I love to get fancy and make super cute labels on the computer just as much as anyone else, but for time's sake, I use my handy dandy label maker!! I think I may need to buy a new one because it's pretty old and I've used it so much!

Tip 2. Use a crate and hanging file folders to save your student's work for the week. Grade their work as it comes in and send it home on Friday all in one neat and easy stack! As you can see, my label maker came in handy here too. =) When I first started teaching, it took me so long to pass papers back to my kids. This is such a simple trick, but a HUGE time saver!

Tip 3. Use a crate and hanging file folders to save all of your reading strategy/skill posters all in one spot. I also have writing posters, CAFE cards, and scales(rubrics) filed away here too. This crate is sitting right next to my rocking chair for super easy access. I used the label maker here too...I'm slightly totally obsessed!

I hope you enjoyed my teaching tips!! Be sure to link up with Miss Kindergarten to share your tips of the trade! Click on this link to link up: Miss Kindergarten

    I love the idea of filing your posters and keeping them nearby for easy! I currently have all of mine in my 'poster drawer'. It's NOT very organized and I've been telling myself I need to find a better way of storing them :) Thanks for the great idea!
