WOW! I can’t believe it is that time of year again! We went back to school for our professional development and teacher workdays this week. I still have several things to do in my classroom before the big day on Monday! I know it will all get done, but the process can be so stressful! This weekend I will be labeling folders, making BEE Binders, and sorting school supplies. I thought I would share with you my favorite way to store all of those extra school supplies that will be used throughout the year. A few years ago I was on a teacher site (I can’t remember which one), and I saw a picture of how she stored her materials. I thought this would be great for storing my students’ supplies, and it turned out to be perfect. I found these 3-drawer containers at Walmart, and I still see them all of the time. I used apple nametags from our local school supply store and wrote numbers on each drawer. After I get my roll, I assign a number to every student. All of their extra supplies go in their numbered drawer. I love this system because I can quickly check to see what students need extra supplies when I send a supplies reminder home.
