If you are just joining us, you'll want to start here or check out my Clutter-Free Guide to Organizing and Managing Your Classroom .This week's Clutter-Free Classroom Project Challenge has you organizing your math materials.
Heidi (from Swampfrog's First Graders) stores her math games in hanging file boxes. Here's what I like about that:
- The bin is transparent so she was able to label it without risking the the label falling off.
- The containers are uniform.
- The games are sorted by skill. Storing items this way allows you to quickly access resources to target individual needs.
- She uses hanging file folders to further sort like items within a container.
