Homework Binder & Classroom Sneak Peek with a Tiki Hut

Hello bloggy friends! I wanted to follow up with one of the FREE products in my TPT store that I discussed here.  I actually "borrowed" this idea from another blogger {here}, but changed some things.  I am going to assign my students numbers at the beginning of the year, so I decided to use the number tabs so that students can't look at others. Also, I thought that it would help keep other student's information confidential at parent conferences. Parents obliviously won't know other student's numbers. Here is what my binder looks like. I am thinking about making the grey behind "The Dog Ate My Homework" a little bit lighter.

I worked in my classroom one day last week for a few hours. Here is a little sneak peek...ignore all of the clutter in the middle. I am dying to get up there this week to eliminate that and organize more! How do you like my Tiki Hut?! I am so excited about it and plan on using it for a shelf for student books, bell work folders, etc...) I am also going to set up a student work station with their own stapler, tape, pencil sharpener, etc... so that they don't have to use supplies from my desk. I am SUPER excited about this new edition to my classroom. Hopefully, I will have more pictures to post the weekend, if not definitely by the middle of next week. Can you believe that school is about to start?! We have registration this week and then a PBIS meeting after. So, basically school is starting!
