Organization is the Key!

The Description

With these funds I will make my now disorganized classroom every teacher's envy!  I have a very large class of students, 35 to be exact, that's a whole lot of Fifth graders in one classroom!  In order to keep everything organized with that many students, I constantly need to stay on top of all my papers, classwork, homework, and notes from parents. It is so tedious because it's incredibly time consuming and there is so little time in one day. I plan to purchase many things that are not costly, but can go a long way in the world of organization! Many of the students are on daily reports to keep open communication between school and home and color coding some of that (different color ink for different subjects) is something small that can go a long way! I hope to purchase the following items to help bring order to the chaos!


Two packs of pens with different colored ink @ $8.79 each

One pack of Sheet protectors @ $8.99

A Letter File Storage Box @ $9.88

6 Multi-pocket plastic folders @ $6.47 each

Highlighters! @ $3.89

Two packs of colored copy paper to make my notes home STAND OUT! @ $5.99 each

Back Up Plan

If I do not meet my goal I will purchase some combination of the things I would like. For instance, in lieu of purchasing two packs of pens, I will buy just one or find cheaper pens. I will purchase 50 sheet protectors instead of 100, I will still buy the folders, and I will try to find a different storage box or improvise with what I have and use the funds for the other items.
