Classroom Storage Tips for Teachers
As the autumn months arrive, so does the school year. That means it’s time to prepare your classroom for the next round of students to grow and learn under your care.
But you can grow and learn, too, and we want to help you bring your classroom experience to the next level this year. Go Store It Self Storage has put together a list of teacher storage tips and school supply storage techniques so your classroom organization can be the best it can be.
Use Colors to Your Advantage
Whether it’s for folders, binders, bins, or some other application, employing color organization in your classroom is a fun way to make it look more interesting while also remaining intuitive. Especially useful for younger students, one way to take advantage of colors is to assign each to a subject: red for math, blue for English, etc.
Vertical Classroom Storage
Make the most of your space by using any built-in cabinets along with adding some of your own. If you have empty wall space, convert it into additional storage with your preference of vertical storage unit or multi-drawer cart for a mobile option.
Create Opportunities for Self-Expression
Give each student an opportunity to customize their belongings, their desk, their mailbox, or something else that they expect to use every day. Not only does this give them a much-needed creative outlet, but it also ensures no confusion about whose belongings are whose.
Make a “Check Out” List
Whenever your students “check out” anything they’re going to use to fill their spare time (like books or painting supplies), have them mark down their names, when they took those things out, and when they were returned. This may seem simple, but it can go a long way in ensuring you know the location of every item as well as fostering both responsibility and trust in your students.
