Organizing Seasonal Resources

I love anything seasonal. Pumpkin scented candles in the fall, pinecone wreaths at Christmastime, and big ole’ pots of fresh planted herbs in the summer. Same goes for my classroom and my students. Slap a holiday theme on an activity and it’s suddenly a hot commodity in my room. We have been growing quite the collection of seasonal goods in our room lately. Obviously this is just great news but the issue becomes – how the heck do we store all this stuff in a way that we can actually find it next year? That last part is key. There is one thing for things to be nicely stored away and a whole other thing for things to be nicely stored away that you can easily access. You all know what I mean 😉

3 Big Bins by Season

First off, I break everything into seasons. September – November go in Fall, December – February in Winter, and March – May in Spring. In theory, it’d be nice to have a bin for each monthly but honestly – I don’t have enough space and these big ole’ sturdy bins last and can be stored easily.

In each bin are individual binders, baggies of materials, and other seasonal goodies (file folders, games, nick-nacks).

Binder for Each Month

Each month has its own binder. This makes storing all worksheets and other flat materials a breeze.

First off in each binder goes our Vocabulary Unit for the month. {See all Vocabulary Units here}

  6. So glad to see this, I have a bin for each month, mostly I have seasonal counters and flashcard type items in them, (a few of them are somewhat empty), this will add to my monthly resources and help me keep things organized and consistent for each month.
