Usually at this time of the year, I am already printing things off, laminating, and creating things for next school year. This year, I took a different approach. I haven’t done anything for next year. Instead, I’m taking the time to really organize my classroom, sift through unneeded items, sort files, and organize binders, so that the behind-the-scenes part of my classroom can be as effective as possible next year. I already feel so much better about my room.
