Now let's get ready for part 2 - MORE ways to stay organized with containers in the classroom!
TIP: Keep out only the things you really use. If you use something only one or two times a year, store it out of sight in a closet or somewhere so you can declutter and make room for what you truly use!
TIP: If you have a place for everything, it makes it easier to put it BACK when you are done, rather than leaving it in a pile to put away later.
HERE.) This is truly a must for a classroom without desks. I tried having containers around the room for each type of folder/notebook, but I just don't have the counter space in my room to do that. I inherited the storage case, but I purchased the bins a few years ago (link here) when the old ones I had were too cracked and falling apart to be used any more. Having a place for things we use everyday helps with organization and still gives students a place of their own to store things.
TIP: Take a few minutes at the end of each day to do a "sweep" around the room and straighten and put things back. Taking 10 minutes each day can really make a difference!
