Keeping the Classroom Organized

Do you feel a constant need to keep your classroom and teaching materials organized and neat? I NEED to be organized in my classroom. If I am not I feel physically awful. 

Recently, I wrote two very detailed guest posts at Charity Preston's The Organized Classroom Blog about keeping your classroom resources organized.

It has taken me a few years of trial and error methods to finally create a system to organize my units. Click on the curriculum units link to see photos of how I keep things in order.

Wondering how to organize your literature circle sets and guided reading sets? Click on the link literature circle/guided reading novels to see how I keep organized.

Click on the photos in this post to check out my thoughts on how to organize your classroom. 

Happy Reading,


  1. I cannot function unless I'm organized. Drives me bonkers if I can't find something, so to save myself the stress of that, I am constantly organizing. Everything has a home and has to go back to its home after use. :)

    1. I love that saying everything has a home. I am going to use it in my classroom!

  2. Hi Kristy! I'm an organization nut as well! I spent the first hour of my PA Day today reorganizing my closet! Ha! Report cards are looming and THAT is what I spend the time on?! That's me!

    Hope you're having a great year! We haven't chatted in a while...

    Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Thanks for the organizational tips. I am currently getting my masters for teaching middle school and I love reading your blog to get helpful hints. It is great to know that someone else out there feels compelled to organize
