As I mentioned in my last post, The Clutter Free Classroom is having a "Get Organized Challenge" and I'm on board! One of the things asked was "Why do you want to get organized?" Well, I "borrowed" her thought board and added some reasons of my own below.
2. Find things quickly. See reason #1.
3. Student self-efficacy. This also ties into "find things quickly." If students know where to look, they will do so more often on their own.
#4, #5, #6: "Create a calming space" leads to "less stress" leads to "more time to relax."
I'm serious about this, and I have it scheduled to start taking and sharing my "before" pics tomorrow.
I would love any and all suggestions you have for me once you see the pics!
