If you are just joining us, you might want to start here to learn all about The Clutter-Free Classroom Project to get teachers organized.

We've been gathering large sorting bins.
We've been printing and glueing some {free} snazzy sorting labels to make decluttering fancy and fun.
And now it's time to collect some small sorting bins.


I know what you're thinking.

"If I already have big bins all the little stuff will fit into it."

I know, but these will be handy.

Trust me.

Small sorting bins are great because you can set them on counters and desktops to make sorting more compact areas like the teacher's desk, drawers, and manipulatives much easier.

My vote goes to clear plastic shoe boxes. I dig them for all the same reasons I dug the large, clear tubs.

Other ideas for small sorting bins include:
  • dishpans
  • good old cardboard shoeboxes
  • small baskets from the Dollar Store
  • baby wipe containers
