The Recycled Classroom

Organizing a classroom can be sooooo expensive.  Many organizers can cost $8 or more, plus one organizer is usually not enough.  This blog post is devoted to money saving organizing tips from recycled goodies that you might already have.

To create a paper organizer you will need cereal boxes, duct tape, and paper to cover the boxes.  Ask students to bring in their cereal boxes.  (This would make an excellent recycling unit!  I would encourage asking students to  brainstorm creative ways to recycle in the classroom.)

Cut the top part off of the boxes.  Using duct tape, tape only the sides together.

Cover with paper and enjoy.  

Create book organizers by cutting some cereal boxes at an angle.
