Without effective well-thought out ways of distributing classroom supplies, chaos is inevitable. This presentation is designed to provide you with various methods of providing students with the tools they need when they need them.
In allowing young learners to keep supplies at their area, many issues can occur. Glue can spill all over everything. Hair can be cut. Students can play with supplies instead of complete their projects. An argument can arise as to what item belongs to who. Therefore, it is recommended that tables space is free and clear of all supplies except when needed.
Have a container for glue and a container for scissors.
When it is time to use these items either grab the container and pass them out or create a container for every table and place a glue/scissors container at each table. Students can retrieve these supplies from the container given to them.
