Creative Crates

One of my favorite teacher tools is the file/milk crate.


Milk Mate Mailboxes

I use expanding hanging folders for each class period and file folders with each student's name. This is how I return papers to students and I even place handouts in their "mailbox" if they are absent so they can collect all their work with they return.



Crate Seat

Another idea I'm working on I got from http://whattheteacherwants.blogspot.com/2011/07/i-gave-in.html. A crate seat.


Book Box

Place the crate on it's side and use it to hold classroom books.

Tech Trunk

Use a crate to store a class set of iPads and easily take them where you are working.

Wipe Desk

Secure a white board to the top of the crate and use it as a writing desk.

  1. Extra curricular activities like these are highly useful to encourage children to think creatively and outside the box. They also provide a refreshing break from the routine.
