So happy to have Palma from KFundamentals guest blogging about Classroom Organization today! Please give her a warm welcome and don’t forget to show her some love on FB, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram, or on her TPT store!
I’m so excited to be guest-blogging today here on Kindergarten Chaos! I have some great tips, project ideas, and even a FREEBIE for you!
- Outline all of the little parts at your centers on construction paper.
- Laminate it and your centers will stay organized and you will know immediately if any pieces are missing.
|Students can practice writing letters, numbers, their name, sight words, etc.|
Or write a word or phrase to help complete their monthly writing page.

- Attach lined dry-erase contact paper to a piece of laminated construction paper.
- Add a strip of numbers or a set of alphabet letters to the top.
- Add dry-erase pens & small erasers and you’re done.
Cover your easel with a flannel-backed plastic tablecloth. It can be washed or tossed when it gets covered with paint.Bonus Tips:
- Tired of washing paint brushes? Each night, cover your paints with wet sponges that have a hole poked in the center for the brush handles. The moisture will evaporate, but your paints will stay fresh and won’t dry out.
- Place paint sample cards on a shelf and place matching bottles of paint just above each paint sample card. Just a glance, and you will know which color you’re out of.
- Place a plastic sandwich bag inside each paint cup before filling with paint. They are easy to discard and your paint cups will stay clean. Add a little petroleum jelly to the plastic tops to help make clean-up easier.
