Use this small poster to display how students should organize supplies in their table supply holders (standard plastic supply holders found at target, lakeshore, etc). At the end of the day during clean up time, each table captain must check to make sure they have all the supplies they need. In my class, we also have a small bin labeled "extra supplies" in an accessible spot for students. If they are missing supplies (e.g. a glue stick because one dried out or ran out during the day), the captain picks up a new glue stick from the extra supplies. The same goes for if a pencil is broken- they may trade it for a sharp one from the extra supplies. Alternately, if they have too many glue sticks for some reason, they put the extra one in the extra supply basket. This helps students be in charge of their supplies, and facilitates sharing because the supplies belong to everyone in our class. When kids bring their own "special" pencil or crayons from home, it only leads to trouble, jealousy, and fighting. By sharing supplies, all students have equal access to the same materials. *Note- I use the medium elementary pencils and separate erasers because they break less frequently, stay sharp longer, and they don't have erasers to fall off! :) Enjoy!
