Ready for some major teacher organization help? Looking for tips on organizing your classroom? Start here!

We made it to summer! And while teachers are most excited for a little break from the stress of teaching, we also know you are all still thinking about your classroom!

Make sure you take that much needed break before heading back to your classroom. BUT… we also realize that a little time in the classroom organizing over the summer might help for a smoother start once school starts.

We don’t want you to spend your whole summer getting organized. To help you save time (and money) we’ve pulled together our favorite organizational resources.

We hope this collection will help you organize quickly so you can get back to relaxing.

This collection of planning binders, classroom decor and more will help you get started with your teacher organization projects.

Tips for Classroom Decor

Remember, your room needs to be what makes you happy. You don’t need to compete with the teacher next door.

It’s ok not to have a Pinterest perfect classroom – will your students even notice?

Also, it’s important that your classroom is not too busy. We don’t want the colors and decorations we love to make it difficult for students to focus.

Walls plastered with posters won’t add to the learning – instead of creating a whole wall of quotes, choose one that is meaningful and that you think will be meaningful to your students.

Hi Kim! It is on our "to do" list, but not quite sure when we might be able to get to it. Hopefully before the fall!
