Well, it's that time of year again, and I thought I might help out by sharing some classroom storage and decor items and where you can actually get them.
First off here is what I use to house my student mailbox and extra supplies: I set the first shelf lower so that my mailbox would fit. The other two shelves house my extra supplies which are in plastic shoe boxes and large clear, see through plastic containers.
This is a baker's rack that I purchased 12 years ago. You can get one at Target for $59.99. It might seem like a lot of money, but it is very durable and should last a long time.
You can purchase plastic shoe boxes at the Dollar Tree for $1 each ~ not a bad price!
Walmart has the larger storage boxes that come 4 to a set for $17.88
The next items I want to show you are for center storage. I am going to use the multi-color tall one for math centers and the other blue one with baskets and hanging pockets for my Daily 5 Stations.
You can get a similar one at Walmart for $50.04 online. I purchased mine at Big Lots last year, but doesn't look like they are carrying them this year.
This Hone Can-Do All-purpose Teacher Caddy came from Staples online. I got a great deal. They had it on sale for $59.99, regular price $199.99. Just checked, and it is back to regular price :( Target has it for $114..39, though.
I just ordered these matching magazine holders and baskets from Really Good Stuff for my Guided Reading groups!
The magazine boxes were $18.99 for a set of 4 and the baskets were the same price for a set of 4. You can get a coupon for $5 off a purchase of $50 or more if you sign up using your email.
Well that's all for now. I hope you picked up a few ideas for your classroom this year. Check back soon to see some ideas for storage and decor in your classroom library!
Happy Back to School!
