Today I am excited to share with you an organizational tip for storing anchor charts and posters. I absolutely love using anchor charts in my classroom because I teach my students to use them as tools when they are working independently. What I don't like so much is what to do with them when we are done with them! I have discovered an inexpensive and easy way to store them!
Let me first say that I stumbled on this way because in my storage closet I have one section that is long with a bar - kinda like your clothes closet at home. One day I was walking through Home Depot and I found these awesome humongo zip-loc bags on clearance. Well, I knew I could use them somehow so I bought them. This is what they are:
You could use these too:
Then I filled the bag with posters and anchor charts. I chose to organize mine by subject matter. I wrote the name of the subject on the outside of the bag using a Sharpie.
Once I was done filing away all my posters and anchor charts, I hung them up in my storage closet. I hang them with the zipper facing out so I can easily open the bag without removing it from the closet.
|Here they are all nice and neat in my closet at school! The rest of the closet may get unorganized|
but these stay just like this!
I hope that you will come visit me at Teaching in Blue Jeans for more ideas for your classroom. Don't forget to stop by today to see Corrina's post in this blog swap!
