Organization is almost as important as having work tasks. If you can’t find any of your tasks or activities than making the task was a waste of time anyways. You have got to figure out ways to keep all of these loads of work tasks organized in a way that you can actually find them when you need them. There is nothing worse than not being able to find the task you need when you want it. Ugh!
I have a bunch of big work tasks that are too big for my work tasks system. I put them in a station called Factory. We have two desk each with one task and I switch out the tasks about every week (or two weeks if life gets crazy…). I was having a major problem finding the next tasks when I was switching them out. Monday morning time crunch and I am spastically grabbing through boxes trying to find something. I have a bunch of tasks but it was such a mess I just kept grabbing the same ole’ ones. And you know that bored kiddos = naughty kiddos. I knew I had to do something!
The key to organization of tasks like this is photos! I took photos of each task and labeled the bins with the photos. Now I can easily glance at my bins, find the next task, and put the old tasks away in the right spot! SO. MUCH. EASIER.
Want to check out all my fun tasks? These are tasks that are too big or have too many pieces to put in my regular work tasks system. Most of the tasks are basic assembly or sorting tasks. It’s nice to have an additional independent work center in my class for those busy bee kiddos!
Organization is my jam.
