Classroom Binder storage Ideas

Teachers use binders for subject notes, school forms, lesson plans, and student records. You can never have too many binders in your classroom. Binders can fall over, especially if they are only half full of pages. It reminds me of toppling dominoes. I'm sure you have experienced pulling out one binder from your shelf and the others lean in.  All of the following ideas can help to keep your binders upright, even if you pull out one from the line up. They will keep the space with placeholders for when you return the binder in its place.

I love to find awesome classroom storage ideas. As an Amazon affiliate, I may earn a commission for purchases using my links. Learn more. The ideas and paid links below are based on Amazon finds that are great for keeping classroom binders upright.

How to Keep Binders Upright

  • Keep binders in a bakeware sorting rack: This teacher keeps her binders in wire racks (#ad). Each slot holds two 1" binders. The racks are made of steel and each one has nine compartment spaces.

  • Use a free standing wire rod magazine rackThis wood base rack (#ad) can hold five binders and keep them upright. When it is full, it seems invisible because all you will see is just the neat binders.

  • Get stylish with classy wire racks for binders: This brass stand (#ad) has eight slots. That's the benefit of wire racks. They tend to have more slots. It also comes in black.

  • Use collapsible binder holders: Did you know that there are collapsible binder holders? Each compartment can be shrunk if you you not need it. Just press two panels together to shrink, and pull them apart to expand.

  • Get binder holders with wide compartments are large 3" binders: If you have large binders, then you'll need wider slot spaces to fit them. These binder holders have 3" compartments for the wide binders. They are available in two sizes: three compartments and four compartments.

If you are looking for a new teacher planner template, I have a black and white one and colorful one in my TpT collection. See them here. They are updated for you each year.

More ideas will be added soon.

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!
