Nothing makes me crazier than picking up markers and pencil crayons that have been left on the classroom floor. With so many children coming in and out of my classroom, I need a way to keep student supplies like markers, pencil crayons, scissors etc., under control. Check out my student supply shelf.

I will be putting all my students into Music Groups. Each member will be assigned a specific job that will make our class run smoothly (more on that later). The baskets I bought a few years ago from The Superstore, however, Dollarama has similar ones. In each basket I placed 6 paper cups (from Walmart). I divided the materials into each cup so that if we need markers for an activity the "Materials Manager" from each group can come to the supply shelf, grab a cup, and return to their group. I'm hoping this will make the groups accountable for each tool they use and will cut down on missing/damaged supplies.
