How to Store Classroom Clipboards

Clipboards can be used for random classroom activities like group work on the floor, partner work around the room, recording observations, read the room activities, etc. Teachers have found some very creative ways to store them. Classroom clipboards can be stored in milk crates, large baskets, mailbox sorters, clipboard stands, wall mounted organizers, and wire racks. 

You can have a system for each student to have his or her own numbered clipboard that they can keep on their desks when they need to use them. Then after use, they return their clipboard to its numbered slot in the designated storage area. I love to find awesome classroom organization ideas.

How to Store Classroom Clipboards:


  • Use a large basket: Keep your classroom clipboards in a large basket while they are not in use.

  • Use seat sacks: For each student seated at a desk, individual clipboards can be stored in the desk, in a sack that hangs on the back of the chair or on the side of the desk. If their desks are metal, you can stick magnetic tape to the back of each clipboard to easily have them stick on. Every clipboard should have the teacher's name on the back in case it gets lost outside of the classroom, so that it can be returned.


How to Store Classroom Clipboards 
  • Use a mailbox sorter: Store your clipboards in a classroom mailbox sorter like the ones above. Just label the clipboards at the top and your students can easily pull out theirs.

  • Use Clipboard Stands: The first clipboard stand above, is used by a teacher to store her clipboards because it is easy for her to move it about in her classroom.  For a much larger set of clipboards, Really Good Stuff has this bigger stand.

  • Use wire racks: Wire racks that are used for storing baking trays are durable for storing clipboards. You may need more than one to suit your needs. These can be used horizontally or vertically.
There are even more options for storing clipboards using either standing or hanging wire mesh storage racks. I put together some examples of these racks in this blog post.

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!
