Storing Student Community Supplies

Storing student community supplies

Are you looking for ideas about Storing Student Community Supplies in your classroom? Teachers used caddies on group tables and pocket charts on the walls and over doors to store community supplies. These supplies can be classroom stationery items like textbooks, color pencils, crayons, markers, pencils, and pens. Some supplies are kept in pocket charts, closer to the teacher desk. These are for suplies that are expensive, important, or possibly dangerous, like scissors, calculators, laptops, tablets, and headphones or earbuds.

Rotating cup caddies with removable cups: This caddy is perfect for any classroom. The best feature is that the sections are removable, which is a feature that is hard to find among other caddies like it. I love that it can be used in any part of the classroom: at the art center, on student small group tables or the teacher desk, to have easy access to any supply you may need. It is durable and is ready for the wear and tear of a classroom full of students.
