Organizing for Next Year Part 2

This year it's not just my room I need to organize! The classroom next to me has a storage closet and we decided to purge the old materials, clean it all up, and let each of the four classrooms that share a common area have one of the big metal shelves to store things. I'm so excited to have a place to put some of my science materials! Here's what it looks like right now:



Of course, as team leader I'm going to end up doing most of the cleaning :) I'm trying to get to school early at least once a week with a goal of hauling out two or three trash bags. The goal is to have it ready the last week of school for the teachers to utilize as we pack away some of our things. We'll see how close we can come to the goal!

I made these cute little signs to go on each of the shelves. Right now, we don't know who will be in two of the classrooms so I just went with the room numbers.

 

 


Do you have shared spaces like this? How do you keep them organized?

  1. What a mess! Good luck! It doesn't look like most of that stuff could be being used because it probably can't be found. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

    1. Two complete shelves and lots of stuff on the floor belong to just one person -- I don't know how she ever finds anything!

  2. That is quite a mess, but mostly I'm SO jealous of your closet space! Love the signs you made!

    1. Some of us have been jealous of that space too! We are looking forward to being able to share it. So far I've thrown away 10 trash bags full!

  3. The only shared space we have is building wide. It gets messy like that too! At least in your grade level you can lead the cleaning effort. In a building no one wants to lead the cleaning. :)
    Good luck cleaning!

    1. We have a shared resource room that is going to be converted to a computer lab. God bless our media specialist, as she has to figure out how to get rid of lots of old stuff there!
