Kids need to have access to their school supplies and it's one of our many jobs to facilitate that so we don't waste precious learning time looking for what they need. I've revamped this system so that you won't hear "I need a red" ever again. I use these drawers as a lost and found in my room. If you find something extra then put it in the drawers at the supply station...if you are in need, look at the supply station. It quickly becomes automatic. My hope is that this will help keep those "extras" organized, tidy, and save your class learning time.
