Rack and Roll Your Center Supplies
Idea by KT, a Teacher, in Mossville, IL.
To keep my learning centers organized, I bought a garment rack on wheels (less than $20) along with several trouser hangers (the kind with the clips). I use the rack to hang self-sealing plastic bags full of index cards, manila envelopes of worksheets and entire pocket charts of information. I flag the hangers with squares of different-colored tape to keep them in order. I use a different color for every month of school year.
Each time I change out a center, I return the completed station items to their respective folders or bags and back onto the rack until next year. The wheels allow me to easily move and store the rack itself. Convenient and easy!
