Organizing your teacher bag for preschool

I think I have hundreds teacher bags laying around. I get them from all sorts of places but mostly from conferences I attend.

Several months ago, I shared how we organize our teaching materials for the week. My main purpose in using a teacher bag is to make transitions between activities go smoothly and to keep essential tools at my fingertips…

I use it to keep things handy like scissors, a permanent marker, glue, and a few other items that are a must have.  I always keep a favorite book stashed away in my teacher bag too…

I often keep a stuffed animal or puppet in the bag too when I need a little helper to get the children’s attention…

I also may keep pieces of an activity we are going to do in the bag so I can easily pull them out when I am ready to use them…

The thing about a teacher bag is that it can get disorganized pretty quick so I clean my bag out just about every day so I am not spending time in front of the children digging around in the bottom of my bag trying to find my stuff.

For me, a teacher bag isn’t a way to organize my lesson plan materials for the week, as I have suggested in my previous post.  It is instead a way to carry the things I need on a daily basis to keep the classroom day and transitions throughout the day running smoothly.
