Centers Management, Organization, Work Habits and More!

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?
Hanging on the line is:  Morning Message  and Winter vs. Christmas 

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.

Here are some of the things included:

Late work tips and sign
