If cleanliness is next to godliness, then being organized is, well, great for your sanity. Teacher organization is also what makes a classroom run well and allows youngsters independence. How can you do it?
Stack Papers in Trays
Trays can be your best friends. Gratnells antimicrobial trays come in deep or shallow models. For starters, they are stackable. Secondly, they have smooth edges, which means that you can pass them around the room for kids to take or deposit paper in it. Finally, the deeper trays let you store your carefully binder-clipped stacks of printables, coloring pages, and handouts.
Cubbies are Excellent Game, Art, and Electronics Storage Devices
Do your kids play games? Most teachers have several games on hand for after-school, half-day, and special seasonal events. Organize them by season with classroom storage units. Choose one with ten or 12 trays. Also, these cubbies are big enough to store your outside game items, the go-bag for fire drills, and anything else you need to keep handy.
If you keep art supplies on hand, group them by genre and place them in color-coded cubby bins. A storage center that accommodates file folders on top lets you put out the construction paper by color, too. Cleaning up and keeping inventory has never been easier. When you prefer labeling your bins for use and reuse, a sectional cabinet could be a better option.
For electronics and their accessories, you need something a little larger. A stylish tray storage cabinet with a backboard is an excellent method for keeping unsightly wire tangles hidden and all devices stored in the respective spaces.
Protect Sensitive Files with Mobile File Drawers
The spelling tests, classroom operations notes for the substitute teacher, student files, and disciplinary actions securely lock in mobile pedestal file drawers. If you share classrooms with other teachers or have to move rooms every so often, these are excellent for staying organized.
