Back view of "The Apprentice". I will have more acrylic frames next year :o)
Excuse my messy table...eek! The primary colored book bins is where I store my non AR books. I wish I had my labels on my home computer to share. Anyway, these are by theme. For example, I have a few ocean bins & the books in the bin all contain the same label as the label placed on the front of the bin. I use these when I do different units & with Science.
This isn't necessarily storage but this is where the kids put their homework. It's great because I can see at a glance who didn't turn in their homework for the day. One of the classroom jobs is "morning homework checker". Their job is to make sure everyone handed in their homework & they make sure names are on every paper BY THE BELL. I also have an "afternoon homework checker". Morning & afternoon "checkers" take out the homework & place a sticker on their homework charts. I duct-taped these on & they have been on for five years!
This is actually a "before" picture of all my file folder games & how I store them. I bought some cardboard bins from Ikea that I like better & also made new labels using Letting Delights fonts. Anyway, this is where I store all my games. I have different labels for each one..for example: "long vowels", "digraphs", "comprehension", "R-controlled vowels", etc. I simply take out the games & place them into their center tubs when we get to the skill.
This is from my favorite store.....Lakeshore Learning! This is also before I made new labels. The top bin is where all my notes, book order money, etc. goes. The red basket is where my "homework checkers" neatly place all homework. The green basket is where my RTI homework goes. Finally, the blue basket is where I store extra sheets from the office.
The containers next to this is for my marker storage.
