This week’s Workspace of the Week is MinsyMins’ kindergarten classroom:
As the school year comes to an end for most children here in the United States, we’ve decided to showcase this wonderfully organized kindergarten classroom. In particular, we were struck by the use of photographs as labels. As MinsyMins explains:
I took a digital photo of each group of manipulatives and then printed it out, laminated, and taped to the shelf. Now as the children replace the bins they look for the correct space. If you’re carrying bears you look for the bear photo. The best way to keep our items organized is for the kids to learn to do it themselves!
Want to have your own workspace featured in Workspace of the Week? Submit a picture to the Unclutterer flickr pool. Check it out because we have a nice little community brewing there. Also, don’t forget that workspaces aren’t just desks. If you’re a cook, it’s a kitchen; if you’re a carpenter, it’s your workbench.
