As part of the Astrobrights Papers Colorize Your Classroom Challenge, Astrobrights is hosting four classroom challenges: classroom decor, classroom organization, differentiated instruction and memorization. ColorizeYourClassroom.com also gives teachers a go-to source for inspiration and ideas on how color can help transfrom your classrooms.
As the second classroom challenge, Astrobrights has asked me to share with you all how I use color to organize my classroom. At first, I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to share and then remembered that organizing is my jam and this wouldn’t be difficult at all 😉 #teacherproblems
also store the books we will use for read alouds and any tubs for
manipulatives. I made colorful labels to help us keep our daily work organized! Of course I had to add a cute ribbon to attach each label onto the
shelves. I just hole punched the label and wrapped the ribbon around the
materials for the day, but stacks of lost papers were still a problem!
So I figured out a way to use the color to help us stay organized! Colored paperclips!
As I’m sorting our work for the week, I match the paperclips to the labels on the shelves. As you can see below, the blue paperclip stack is for Friday, and the yellow paperclip stack is for Wednesday!
Do you have any bright ideas?
Astrobrights may even feature your bright idea as the pick of the week on Facebook to help other teachers colorize their learning!
Are you looking for a way to print with endless colored ink on a budget?
This printing trick is one of the best things that ever happened to me
as a teacher!
My good friend Lauren from A Teachable Teacher has this AWESOME blog post that explains Instant Ink in detail! Check it out by clicking the image below…you won’t regret it!
