I use the Mother Goose Time Curriculum in my day care. Each month a subscription box arrives and it needs to be sorted through and prepped. Finally I think I’ve come up with a good way to organize it.
I found this 10-drawer cart (on clearance for $28 – sometimes I’ve seen them for about $70, like at Michael’s – good thing to use a 40% off coupon on!) I labeled the drawers with vinyl cut on my Silhouette.
When the box comes, I open the bags and prep the kits (punch out pieces, tape/lace/fold, laminate, etc.) and put them in the drawers by day. I put two weeks in Mon-Fri and then put another pack in under those for the following two weeks. I can put anything else in the drawers I want to use on those days as well. A basket on top holds anything too big to go in the drawers and extra supplies.
I also make an activity calendar each month so I know what days we’re doing way and add in other things I want to do.
This is working great and saves me a lot of time each day!
