Ah... What is my plan exactly?

- What do you plan to do with your "stuff" that you no longer want?
- What are your rules for purging?
- What have you gathered to make your decluttering task easier?
A lot of my problem is that I have a lot of stuff that no one will need. Why do I need to keep file folders that already have student names on both sides. What on earth can I still do with it all?
- ::Throw away:: old file folders, the previous teacher's bag of junk (I'm sorry, but I found a bag of his old socks. Gross.) and paper files that I no longer need.
- ::File:: Any original copies, example projects, student copies, etc. I tend to throw all my original copies into a file basket and keep them there until it overflows. I have several groups of these papers. Problem... thanks to my double move, I have no clue where some of them are! Home? School? Garage?
- ::Organize:: My teacher books and teaching materials. I need to get bins or tubs for Languages Arts/Social Studies and Math/Science. I'll admit that I'm a teaching book hoarder. I have a box for just Language Arts and Social Studies sitting in my garage. I went to the Teacher Created Resources Sale today about bought 10 more math practice books. However, I know a lot of you have been teaching the same subject for years and can purge the unnecessary subjects. I can't... These were been my last four assignments...
- 2011-2012: 7th Grade Language Arts/ Social Studies - then transfered to 7th grade Math/Science
- 2010-2011: 7th Grade Language Arts/ Social Studies
- 2009-2010: 6th, 7th, 8th Grade Math Intervention
- 2008-2009: 6th Grade Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, Science
- Yeah, I have no clue what I'll be up to next year!
- ::Bring to Work:: There is about half my classroom that's being stored in my garage. You'd cry if I took a picture of my garage. I did take a picture of what's in my office at home. It all needs to be reunited!
|Reunited and it feels so good!|
So that's the grand plan for now!
