Do you have any New Years resolutions for your job? When the holiday craziness is over, I like to do a little reflecting. What needs a little tweaking? How can I make things a little smoother for next semester.
In the picture above is a big time savers. Label each unit in your Teacher’s Edition with a different color. Label each chapter of the unit with the same color. You would be surprised at how much time you waste flipping through your T.E. looking for a specific chapter.
Students take pride when their work is displayed. Making seasonal bulletin boards is time consuming. If you don’t have a lot of extra time, I would recommend getting some of the greeting card display cords like in the picture above.
I found this set at Hobby Lobby at an after Christmas sale. Students can even hang their own work. Independent work display – what more could you ask for?
It seems like the management of centers was one of the areas that I reflected on each year. I have compiled a file full of tips, management ideas, printables, and other helpful tools that will help you if this is your area that needs tweaking.
