Clutter Free Classroom Challenge

So I am not even going to lie....I feel like I stalk Clutter Free Classroom. Others teachers walk into my classroom and call me organized while in my head I am screaming "This place is a mess." So I decided to post a few pictures of my classroom.

Here is my forbidden zone. My desk area that the kids sit in more than I do since my classroom computer count is limited.

Here is one side of my classroom when the kids are grouped together. Their "Goal Tracker Binder" If any of you know about Marzano and his scales we have a complete book that we were forced to make scales based on our state standards.

Here is a view from my small groups table of the kiddies in their "testing spots." I used two folders  and stapled them together to make their personal "house"- dividers.

So here is my challenge #1. I have posted a few pictures of my classroom. I am behind a few weeks but I hope i catch up.

  1. How do those folders work for you? I have been wanting to get privacy shields for a while but your idea is probably a lot more affordable!

    Marvelous Multiagers!

  2. I have had the folders for two years. They work very well for my students. They are easy to clean up and repair with just another staple. I did not laminate them so I always inform my students not to write on them because I love them so much.

    1. Thanks for the info! I might try those out! I have a lot of wandering eyes in my class.... ay yi yi.
