Organization Is My Love

Hey my fab peeps! I'm so thrilled to be sharing with you some of my organizational options that I use in my classroom.

This piece of awesomeness is my teacher toolbox. This organizes anything my heart desires. The fab thing about this is that you can edit each drawer to your liking. Just click the photo and it will take you to these labels. You kind find the toolbox here  and you can see my Youtube video by clicking here. This toolbox will definitely change your life! This eliminates junk on or inside your desk. Winner, Winner, Chicken dinner!

Now all of my kiddos have their own crayon box full of their own personal supplies. However, they may need a certain color crayon that they may not have anymore. So they come here and grab what they need, but they MUST return, because we are sharing these.

You talk about wanting to eliminate kids always saying, "My pencil is broke." Well here you go. I keep plenty of pencils in the sharp drawer. So when my kiddos need a new pencil they put their broken one in the broken drawer and grab a short one. It's FABULOUS!!!! Click the picture for the free download. All I ask is that you show LOVE in the review section.

This magenta crate houses all of our math bags. The kids just come here and grab a baggie when they're playing math games, or when they are working on math work. When finished, they just place everything back into the baggie and put the baggie back into the crate.

Our math bags hold our math tools; snapcubes, number lines, number bonds, and ten frames. Tools that help my Firsties explore math.

I place individual math games inside each math tub.

These math manipulatives are placed inside these plastic bins. Each bin is labeled nice and neatly. The labels were created by the fabulous Amy Groesbeck The Animated Teacher.

This is my math shelf as a whole.

I use these drawers to house my different types of writing paper that the kiddos can choose from. Simple and to the point. 

 I did the same thing with my word work drawers and other activities.

So as you can see Miss May LOVE, LOVES, LOVES being organized. We have fun in first with our learning and make messes but we know that everything has a home when it's time to clean up. I've also came across an AWESOME company called MakeSpace. It's a self-storage company. They have options for your organizational storage needs. Check them out! ((HUGS))

Today's Goals

Good morning my FAB PEEPS!!! I pray that you all had a BLESSED Labor Day weekend! I definitely did. I spent time with family and had some rest and relaxation time as well. However, you know us teachers. We always have something we can be working on. I'm very happy and excited that I'm down to just carrying one bag back and forth from home and work. Praise the Good Lord! I wanted to start the week with this quote. No matter what your going through try your best to stay positive. If you have to keep saying it to yourself please do. Never stop praying because God hears and sees all. ((Hugs)) and Blessings to you all!

OCD with Organization

Hello love bugs! Tomorrow I officially report back to my campus for some PD (professional development) and getting my classroom finished before school starts on the 22nd. I know many teachers are all about that organization! I know I am!! An organized classroom that is run on happy, love, and kindness is my kind of room. I have found many great tools throughout the years that have helped me out so much. Not only me, but for my students too. They have the freedom of being independent learners and I LOVE that! Check out the video below if you're in need of some organizational ideas. LOVE you bunches!

A Teacher's Serenity Prayer

Oh my crayons! The 2016-2017 school year is fast approaching for many of us. As you know, I try to do as many things as I can to keep myself upbeat and positive. Yes, I have rough days. However, I can't just sit in the doom and gloom. :) Below you will find the Teacher's Prayer as a FREE and yes FREE download in my teacher store. It comes in a variety colors for your choosing pleasure. I feel this is a FAB prayer to print, place in a frame and sit on your desk. I can't do NOTHING without GOD! Have a FAB day!

Be Inspired...Don't Emulate

Hello my FAB peeps! Hope all is well on this beautiful Wednesday. Today I wanted to spread light on my first year teachers out there. As a first year teacher you can and will find yourself inspired by other teachers and professionals in your school. That's a FAB thing! I was so inspired 13 years ago my first year by my mentor teacher. THANK YOU NELL MUEHLBRAD! However, don't get caught up in trying to become them. BE YOURSELF, BUT BE YOUR BEST SELF. It will take your education career so far. Just click on the video and see what I mean. Spread the word to other new teachers out there too. ((HUGS)) and Blessings to you all!

What's In Miss May's Teacher Bag?

Hey teacher love bugs! My summer of chillaxin' is shortly coming to an end. NOOOOOOOO!!!! I feel like I just caught my breath like 5 minutes ago. LOL Every summer I LOVE to reflect and jot down my thoughts and ideas. I decided this year I am NO LONGER going to be the bag lady. I've decided what I need is going into my teacher bag. 

This teacher bag is so me! It just screams Miss May's personality!! :) I just posted a YouTube video about what's in my teacher bag. If you're curious about my FABULOUS bag it's from Consuela. It's based in Austin, Texas. Check out my video and remember to keep taking good care of YOU!
