May is National Inventor’s Month, which is a perfect time to stress collaborative learning, science, innovation, technology and creative thinking. Educators can also use the opportunity to spotlight historical figures, events and math concepts connected to the world’s best inventions. Of course getting through a month’s worth of special activities will require the right school furniture and supplies to be readily available. So, why not get together with educators and parents to ensure that your institution is fully equipped to join in on the auspicious, annual occasion? Here are a few school furnishings that you might want to mention:

You’re far into the school year and thought you finally had your classroom organized; but now the math manipulatives you ordered back in December are starting to arrive. You’re excited to begin teaching with them, but first, you need to find storage room for the learning materials and make them easily accessible to you, your students and other teachers. Worthington Direct has a variety of portable storage carts that are easy to share with other classrooms, easy to move within your own classroom and roomy enough to hold all your manipulatives.
The average day for a teacher is far from ordinary and can get pretty hectic. Although there is no recipe to eliminate the chaos completely, there are ways to alleviate it. Everything runs better with a little organization. When teachers are organized, and help their students be organized, the day will always go much smoother. Teacher organization systems that are flexible and require little floor space are a good way to make that happen.
School budgets around the country are tight and one of the first things to suffer financial cuts is the music department. If buying new instruments is not in the fiscal future, then you have to take care of the ones you have. Instruments should not be stored on the floor, kicked around, dropped, and generally abused because there isn’t a decent storage solution. A Marco instrument storage system for the band room is an investment that will save money in the long run.
The Band-Stor system is a great product that will organize and protect all the instruments in your school. Choose from small compartments to hold flutes, clarinets, and trumpets and large shelving to hold instruments such as trombones or bassoons. Medium shelves will hold everything in-between. Storage compartments for rolling instruments like xylophones, timpani drums, or chimes are available too. For music programs with uniforms, there are even storage systems for keeping them well-protected while not in use.
