And here are my new teach carry-alls! The one in the back has a wire frame that holds standard sized hanging file folders. This is my new lamination organizer. I can organize items to be laminated as well as items that have been laminated but need to be cut. Yes, letter sized laminated pouches fit easily in the file folders! The pouches on the side hold my scissors and other supplies.
The other carry-all will be used for circle time activities. Between the large interior and the pockets that go all the way around the exterior, I can easily tote all the essentials around with ease. I have already added our pointers, timers for the silence game, sitting spots and planning binder and I have ample room left. I used to tote my supplies around in a dishpan. It's not quite ideal because I'm always digging through it.
So there's the start of my organization for next year. Stay tuned as I share how I'm finally getting a handle on my book obsession.
