  1. I like the last picture, with the green buckets on the teal bookcase. I love the colors blue and green. I am fortunate to have a classroom where two walls are painted a nice calming shade of blue and the wall around the door is painted a nice shade of light green. I just finished organizing my math cabinet. All of the manipulatives are in clear plastic shoeboxes with blue lids. The labels are all white index cards with a picture of the items inside and the name of the item in black sharpie. All of the levels are taped to the container with clear packing tape so they are protected from splatters (we do many hands-on projects and experiments that can get quite messy. It is a thing of beauty. Next up, organizing my science cabinet the same way.

  2. I am eagerly awaiting my mid-winter break at the end of February and these pictures have given me even more inspiration! My plan for that week is to finally label and coordinate my storage containers in my reading and math areas! Is it weird that I am excited for a break so that I can go into work and organize? :)

  5. I love the last picture, the blue shelf with the green buckets. I would love to do something like this in my classroom that is beach themed. So cute!

  6. I love the first one, because I bet my bottom dollar those are just xerox box tops guzzied up. I love black and white, and the electrical conduit clamp as a drawer pull is just genious. Kudos to the poster.
