How to Store Classroom Earphones and Earbuds

Teachers need to have organized storage systems in place for storing and keeping track of classroom headphones and earbuds. Each earphone must have a number assigned to it for it to be used only by the student that is rostered for that number. The earphones can be stored in a large classroom pocket chart, mesh bags, or an earphone storage unit. See how teachers are finding affordable ways to store their classroom headphones below.

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!
