I wholeheartedly believe we should be creating classrooms that are welcoming, safe, and yes, even cute for our kiddos. But before we even step foot into our classroom, we have to have a plan on how to create an organized elementary classroom.

I often get asked, “how do I plan for the new year.” You don’t just show up and start putting up bulletin boards and printing off welcome packets, you need a plan!
Well Teacher Friend…Here is your plan!
The Components of an Organized Elementary Classroom
There are four components when it comes to creating an organized classroom. I want you to think of these components as a wedding or tiered cake- you have the plate that it sits on, then the layers going up. I specifically structure the components, and the framework course, this way because I believe you need the things on the base to support the things on the top.
The Organized Teacher Framework lays out the “cake method” in great detail as well as walks you through how to set up each of the “cake layers”
First, you have time management and self-care, that is your plate or surface that your whole cake sits on. Next, you need your classroom management plan, third is classroom organization, and then lastly is your decorating.
Listen in to the podcast to get all the details on each of the layers! Or, join The Organized Teacher Framework and get started on creating your classroom organization plan.
