As a teacher, you know that organization is the key to working efficiently. Tracking and managing student paperwork, keeping track of instructional materials and maintaining your inventory of classroom supplies can be a daunting task in and of itself. But when you’re a teacher with a mobile classroom, this process can be even more overwhelming.
Some teachers have dedicated instructional space. Others are in a variety of different environments and group settings throughout the day. This constant movement requires extra planning and specific equipment. When adapting your organization tactics for mobility, think ease of use (or in this case, ease of movement):
- Do you need to move copious amount of learning materials from classroom to classroom? Try a Cascade Mobile Tot-Tray Tower. This organization option allows you to easily move your materials from room to room, and individual storage trays make it easy to separate and organize materials. Cascade units are completely customizable with the ability to mix and match different tray sizes, option to add doors or a whiteboard back, and several color options to choose from. The clear trays are removable, which make distributing student’s school work easy, and can even be housed in some Smith System desks to be used as a bookbox. The Cascade Series Mobile Tote Tray Tower from Smith System offers style, organization and flexibility for the classroom.
- If you are moving teaching supplies and a few bulkier items, the Memorystor® Universal Rolling Cart & Organizer Bag may be a better option. A truly all-purpose, collapsible cart with extra wide, rubber wheels and telescoping handle that extends to 23″ from the cart. Includes patent-pending canvas saddlebag-style cover for accessories/supplies that can be easily added or removed from the classroom cart. It also features a built-in tabbed, accordion file that holds documents and receipts (accommodates letter or legal size folders, hanging files or binders).
- Maybe you have audio visual materials that require constant on-the-go access. Find the right AV cart, and your transitions throughout the day will be so much easier. The Double Wide Sit-stand Presentation Station With Security Cabinet by Balt, for example, has a whole lot of storage in one compact cart. This doublewide presentation cart comes with three sturdy shelves for accommodating the projector, laptop, stationery and supplies. It also includes two additional side shelves that are removable. The four casters allow easy movement, providing flexibility to move from room to room as needed. This model features a locking security cabinet with a ventilated back to keep your electronics secure and cool.
- Perhaps you’re a librarian or a reading specialist, and you’re sharing your love of reading to students throughout your school. In that case, a book truck would come in handy, which we have several sizes, styles and colors to choose from.
