Someone recently asked me how I store all the teaching resources I've been creating on TeachersPayTeachers. What a great question! I'm sure there are a lot of "right" answers, but here's what I've been doing:
I like to use small zippered baggies to store small pieces, as rubber bands become brittle over time and sometimes end up breaking. All the worksheets, pages, and even laminated games can slip right into the envelope! Extra copies that didn't get used? Put them in and they'll be ready for next year! Examples? In they go! Small craft supplies you need for the project? You guessed it, they slide right on in.
I like using envelopes like this because they take up so little space. You can slip them onto a bookshelf alongside the books you teach at the same time, tuck them into the pockets of your binders, pop them in your filing cabinet - however you organize and store your materials!
Do you have a storage suggestion or solution you'd like to share? I'd love to hear what you do - please leave me a comment!

I hope to provide parents with insight into what we are doing, and why, and to share ideas with other early childhood educators.
