Let's Get Organized: Plus a Vera Bradley Agenda Giveaway

It is day three of Blog Hoppin's Back to School Link up and today's topic is "Why"!!!


Keep reading for a quick and fun little giveaway!!!  Let me just start off by saying that I am by no means the most organized person in the whole world, for that fact not even the most organized in my hall, or probably even in my grade.  But I do like to have some structure to my materials and stuff.  It does make for a much easier day and transitioning with the kiddos if I can find things easily!  I would probably have to say my best organizing effort is labeling.  I label almost everything in my classroom.  Even the candy jar has a label on it, as if candy needs a label to be identified.




I even put labels on all of my notebooks as well as the students.  I number all of their notebooks, supplies, back pack racks, and etc…  I don't know why but I feel like I just function better with everything having a place and me knowing were it is.  It also helps to be able to tell a seven year old the basket that says, "Turn papers in here"!

If you want to grab some cute free labels just click on the images below!   They will print on Avery's 2X4 label size too if you are wanting a sticky back!  These were some of the labels I used in my class this year!!  



Another little item that helps me keep my sanity is my Vera Bradley Planner!!  I love, love, love it!!!  I am a little old fashion in the sense that I still have to write down what is going on during the week.  Trying to keep up with two girls who are in dance, gymnastics, cheer, and not to mention at another school besides mine…  well, you get the idea,  it can get a little hectic!  Usually on Sundays I sit down and just go over the upcoming week and write down who has what and needs to be where.   I also keep up with all of their and my school events as well in this little planner.  I tried switching over to my iPhone {going digital}, but that was a big no go!!!

Would you like a chance to win a Vera Bradley Agenda for the 2014-2015 school year?  My mom owns a local gift shop {Chinaberries} and she has donated a Vera Bradley Agenda/Planner for me to giveaway on my blog.  She knows how much I love mine and knew that there were probably other teachers out there who would love one too!  


Just enter in the Rafflecopter and I will let the winner know by email this Sunday!  It is that easy!!!



Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!   I can't wait to see how you girls {and guys too} stay organized!  I {heart} comments and followers!!!

  3. My planning is on paper for the most part. I make templates on the computer but like filling things in by hand.

  5. I definitely use a planner - usually the free one from Laskeshore Learning. I never knew Vera Bradley had a planner.

  7. I have always used a hard copy planner. This year I bought a digital one (lots of toner...is the only down side).

  8. Useful writing - my assistant earlier today happened across http://pdf.ac/6ZUTdKto merge pdf . It's notably convenient to learn and it's cheaper than others - I was informed they are giving a 7 day trial currently
