Throwback Thursday...Don't Mind if I do!

How stinkin' cute is Cara Carroll and her genius ideas!? I love her idea of a "throwback Thursday" linky because it's fun to reflect on old blog posts, and let's face it, super easy to do {and I can barely keep my eyes open as I just finished school for the year so easy takes top priority}! You can click on this button to check out her blog and join in too!


This post as on *oldie* but definitely a goodie! It's actually my most viewed post on my blog, so you've probably seen it, but in case you haven't, here it is! A great way to get organized for a new school year!

Tabletop Organizer

Inspiration for the day: Tabletop Organizer!

I saw this post on A Bowl Full of Lemons and absolutely loved the idea of reorganizing my "go to" section on my teacher desk.


I got the filing basket at Target and it came with super cute file dividers!


I labeled the dividers with the 5 different piles that always seemed to be on my desk!
1. To Copy
2. To Do
3. To File
4. To Send Home
5. Next week

On the front, I added my weekly plans. I attached the plans to rings so that I can easily access future weeks and then clipped the plans onto the front of the filing basket so that I can easily remove it for planning days or when I need to add or change something. {Easily seems to be my theme here!}


Then I printed out the adorable Teacher To Do list that Michelle at Fabulous in First shared, glued it onto pink polka dot paper and laminated it. I wrote on it with a wet erase marker (vis-a-vis) so that I can easily erase my to-do list when it's to-done!

I am so excited about my new organization tool! I've already put it to use! Now I just have to figure out how to get it from the files to the proper place...

  3. Hi Hadar! I remember seeing this when you first posted it! I loved the idea but didn't have the time to do it while school was going on. That was also before I knew what blogging was all about! I am definitely going to do that this summer! I love that you have your lesson plans hooked to it for easy access! Great idea! Thanks!
