Monday Minute - Organizing! August 24 2009
Everyone involved with kids at any level knows that school is about to start. Every year, the last week of August for me is a kind of "spring cleaning," a time to get cleaned up from summer fun, put stuff back where it belongs, to get organized.
I found this quote on getting organized, and I thought it was perfect, especially considering my other post today on organizing school supplies:
Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up. --A. A. Milne
I have two kids - ages 7 and 4 - and we deal with ADHD in our household, so life can tend to feel chaotic. Therefore, I find it incredibly peaceful about being able to actually find something where I thought I put it, undisturbed. Such a small comfort in a busy teacher's life. :)
