How to Organize and Store Student Supplies in the Classroom

Are you using tables or flexible seating in your classroom and wondering how or where to store the students' supplies? This blog post from The Clutter-Free Classroom will explain how to store books, pencils, journals and more.

I hesitated to pick this as today's Clever Idea simply because I lack all sewing talents (as evidenced by the fact that I made my classroom curtains with a glue gun and a stapler), but I decided that this needed to be shared for a few reasons:
  • I'm all anti-desk / pro-table and as such I feel it is my civic duty to pass along any tips that will help my cult table followers stay organized in their classrooms...and this is a good one.
  • I think this is one of the very best tutorials on how to make these that I have ever seen.
  • It's way cheaper than buying chair pockets.
  • I once had my mother make me a set of chair pockets...and although I'm not a sewer, I'm assuming many other non-sewers have connections too.
Don't you just love the dual pockets, the fabric choice and the poms at the bottom? Do you use tables or desks?
