Figure Out Your Storage:
Where is your pile in your classroom? You know - the pile of paperwork that hasn't found a home yet - either student work, stuff that needs to be filed or the tons of stuff your get from administration. Look at your piles this year and make a plan to deal with them from the start next year. Over the summer you can shop for a storage system that will work so just jot down a note of what you want to look for.

My school is going with the very general theme of "Animals" next year. I love it, because we'll all be able to put our own spin on it! I'm going with Creative Teaching Press' Woodland Friends theme:
My over-arching theme will be "A Forest Of Knowledge" and all of the Woodland Friend characters and pieces will go with that! The Woodland Friends Welcome Bulletin Board set has so many fun pieces!
These 9"x12" library pockets are going to be great for organization!
How sweet will these Woodland Friends Reward Badges be for the first day of school or as an award for good behavior during the first week?
Patterned Pine Trees Border, the colorful Toadstools Border will be great for around my Writing Center blackboard, and of course the Woodland Friends Border is too cute with those adorable character faces!
Who doesn't like stickers?! Use these Woodland Whimsy Hot Spot Stickers on student papers, to reward good behavior or to add a positive touch to a note home - there's 880 to a pack!
Need an individualized behavior plan? These Woodland Friends Student Incentive Charts can be used in so many ways!
These 6" Toadstool Cut Outs are great for adding students' names throughout the room, labeling shelves or drawers or even better - use them to create fun Math games!
