Crayon and Color Pencil Classroom Storage Organization

How to store and organize crayons and color pencils

There are many creative ways to store the crayons and color pencils in your classroom. The most practical ways would allow for the crayons to be sorted in a system that allows students to easily find the colors they need and to be able to return them to their allotted storage spaces. I know that depending on where you are, your students may not be allowed to share crayons or any tools. With all of the hand washing and sanitizing that is going on now, do your students share resources at all? I would like to know. For these situations, each student would need to have his/her own supplies.

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
