When I am consulting with or presenting to teachers about How to Organize a Classroom, I always put lots of emphasis on the importance of creating effective classroom storage solutions.
Having a designated space for every type of paper and every object combined with labels will make it easy to maintain an organized classroom.
Some things are a bit trickier than others. While my greatest storage struggle was finding the perfect way to store oversized construction paper (click that link to see the solution I happily found), I found rubber stamps and stickers to be a close second.
Do you use rubber stamps when grading papers? They certainly are a more cost effective option than stickers but can be tricky to store.
Once upon a time in what feels like a lifetime ago, I was a scrapbooker...a real live scissors and paper scrapbooker. And then ironically when I had actual worthwhile subjects to scrapbook (aka my 3 kids) I didn't have a spare moment to work on it. I also had to give up my "studio" to a playroom. Ultimately, I lost interest and started making digital hardcover albums which I actually love more so my tale has a happy ending.
But, long story short, back in the scrapbooking day, I had to organize and manage a lot of stickers.
And found this system to work great.
It's an easy-peasy clear page protector and a binder. I love that you can easily see them all and can move the pages around to meet your needs.
One thing I found super useful was to first slide a piece of card stock into each sleeve. This prevents the plastic page protects from being floppy and makes the binder easier to flip through.
