Whether you are a new teacher or have been teaching for 25+ years, everyone needs organization to start the year off right! This pack is designed to help you make sure you have everything ready for the first day of school. Many of us walk into our rooms and feel a little overwhelmed when getting things ready for a new year. Questions such as “Should I change things up this year? Should I have a classroom theme? Where should I start?” I have created a checklist to help ease the “back to school nervous energy”. The first thing I recommend is to sit at your desk and take it all in. Just relax and look at your room. Depending on your personality, you choose where you want to start that feels most comfortable for you. Some people like to arrange their room with desk placement, bookshelves, teacher desk, centers, etc. before they jump in with other things. Other teachers like to work on the details that make their room run smoothly and leave the classroom layout for last. There is no specific order to the checklist, it is just there to help you remember what needs to be done!
