Here are some super affordable IKEA finds that I use in my classroom!
Cheap Organization Idea # 1: Frames
|Tolsby 2-Sided Picture Frames with Center Stand...99 cents each.|
|Here is the entrance routine that I would like my students to learn in September. I plan to post these mini signs on my student tables.|
Ok...not 6th grade classroom-related but I can't resist...
(I also used them for my son's Very Hungry Caterpillar birthday party....It was so stink'n cute.)
Cheap Organization Idea # 2: Shoe Storage Boxes
Ikea shoe storage boxes have (very strong) velcro and one see-through side. I used these to organize colored paper and magazines. One box can hold A LOT of stuff and they are a very sturdy nylon material. They come in a 4 pack for $7.99 and can fold flat for storage in-between uses and they are sturdy enough to stack on top of each other.
Cheap Organization Idea # 3: Cardboard File Folders
These sturdy cardboard magazine files are 5 for $1.49. I wasn't sure how well they would hold up, but I've had these for 2 years. The edges are getting a little beat up, but I think they will last at least one more round with my 6th graders.
I couldn't make up my mind about how I wanted to label these, so I got crafty and painted a stripe across the top using chalkboard paint. It worked out well because I've changed the labels numerous times with ease!
