Perhaps this is news to some of our readers, so let me explain the reason behind this office-in-a-box of mine: I accepted a part-time job as a remedial therapist(working with kids with learner difficulties). It is a dream job, except that I don’t have a office of my own, thus traveling between available offices.
I used this tool box when I did arts& craft classes at different schools, traveling a lot, a while back. Now it is useful again. It has wheels, and is sturdy enough to haul everything and anything around, not even to mention all the great little compartments for the small stuff!
Here I keep some highlighters, erasers, sharpener, my key, some post it notes(great little invention to use during teaching and to organize myself) and mini markers(useful for visual learners).
Removable compartment box:
I like to keep all the small things in here, like fasteners, staples, correction marker, white board markers, craft knife etc. You never know when you’ll need it!
First box, top:
Here I keep some scissors, stapler, paper punch, reading helper(coloured see-through page that helps with tracking), and some Popsicle sight words and Days of the Week popsicle sticks. This might change now and then…
Here I keep the motivational stickers, stamps, and sweets. And the stationery holder with different stationery, ready for taking it out at once when we need it.
Lower box, top:
I keep all kind of things here I might need- some water paint, tapes, blank Popsicle sticks, a magnetic spelling game and my beloved label maker.
I use this box to keep the props and items I need for a specific week. This week we will be using paper plate signs in our writing group, to explain punctuation(more on this in a later post), and using pom poms for a fine motor skills activity for the preschoolers. I have a small basket with record cards, which I use for quick notes on the students I see in therapy, to add into their files later.
I have a basket I keep in the car with the files that don’t fit into the tool box. These files I don’t need every day, but keep them in the car, just in case…
All ready to go!
I’m a sucker for organizing stuff ! See me drool…
Love the new look on your website by the way;)
