So, now you might want to know what I intend on using these for.
- The medium sized one is holding my receipts for work related expenses. There is a pocket for each month.
- The small pink folder is holding sight word flash cards I use with my class.
- The large folder I'm using to separate some of my games and their pieces.
I have several of the small types in solid blue and purple left over from my scrapbooking days. I had bought them to sort and hold photos. Rather than tossing them out I took them to school and use them to sort and store flash cards and small card games.
Center & Game StorageI have tried several different ways over the years to sort and store my centers. BUT as my centers grew, I found a simple manila envelope or a file folder just wouldn't work. Now, I use the Large Sterilite Clip Containers. (I hope this is the FINAL method). These are the same containers that I use for my Math and Literacy Work Stations. I LOVE these. containers. They are sturdy, stackable and kid friendly. When I ordered these from Target they were supposed to be clear with green handles I'm so happy that they weren't. I love these.
I separated out my centers by the month that I wanted to use them. Most of my centers are thematic. For those that could be used anytime-meaning they didn't have a specific theme like gingerbread men or hearts- I stored those in the plastic envelopes and expandable file folders. Within in container I have each specify center either in plastic baggies or clipped together.
These are the boxes. I also have them with red handles and black handles. They come in a box of 6 for under $24. 00 Click image to see at Target. I should really be getting a commission on these, I have convinced so many people to buy them.
