This summer I was inspired by MANY pictures all over Instagram of teachers using these project cases for holding their monthly files. SOOO I decided to tackle this project!
So I did what she suggested and began the purge and keep tasks.
I found those project boxes at Target back in June. They were on clearance so they were not too pricey at all. I like to have my monthly themes together so I knew that is how I wanted to organize each box.
Then OF COURSE, I had to create some super cute covers for the front of the box!
I decided that I wanted to have the themes I teach that month listed also. Just to make it easier for me.
This year I am going with a rainbow chevron theme so the covers had to match my alphabet and number posters I have made. :)
Til I move all my stuff into my new classroom, I am keeping the boxes in a crate. When they get to school I plan to put them into my file cabinet.
SOO much neater and more organized than my hanging files from years past! Just LOOK at the pile I threw away! Whew.
If you like these covers I made a set with just the month names on them.
I hope this post has given you a good idea of one way to keep your files organized and neat. I would love to hear about how your store your files in your classroom too! What works for you?
