Welcome to our first Classroom Organization Challenge. Keeping organized is always a challenge for any teacher. Over the next four weeks we will be challenging ourselves to conquer the clutter and get our classrooms in tip top shape.
Get Prepared We will be beginning the challenge on Thursday January 12th. If you want to get the ball rolling ahead of time print out the free schedule and note section. Begin by stocking up on trash bags and boxes to get this party going.
Find a partner. Everything is better when shared with a friend. Ask a teacher friend at your school that would like to take the challenge with you, to conquer the clutter together.
I'm teaming up with two other Pre-K teacher bloggers to bring you the classroom organization challenge. If you have a blog, please join us and invite your readers too!
Share your progress. Need some extra encouragement to keep going? We will be participating together so, share your photos before, during and after. If you're on Instagram, our challenge hashtag is #2017tptprekchallenge. If you’re sharing on social media, tag us so we can see your accomplishments.
We will also be sharing on Facebook so join the conversation and share your progress along the way.
