Ahhh...an organization linky! I am really striving to be organized but I have SO much work to do this summer in my storage closet and filing cabinets. I plan to take pictures of that mess and then show you before and after pictures after it is done this summer!
For now, I am linking up with two amazing ladies, Elizabeth at Fun in Room 4B and Kristen at Ladybug's Teacher Files for their Optimum Organization linky. All the ideas I am sharing with you below are new organization techniques that I implemented this year. Most of them have worked out great but I still need to tweak some too. :)

My biggest organization disappointment was one of my summer projects that I made to keep my writing and reading conferences for Daily 5 organized. I worked to make a divider in this binder for each student with pages to record notes for writing and reading conferences.
Why did it disappoint me? It was too large and cumbersome to carry everywhere and I found that the conferences needed to be fairly quick if I could get even close to fitting them in. My plan this summer is to get organized again and use some sticker labels for individual conferences like this idea by Jivey at Ideas by Jivey. I can carry around a clipboard and stick my notes from the label into my binder later! This will be so much easier to manage.
I can hardly wait until summer to begin organizing even more areas of my classroom!
It is in dire need!!
