Listening station

I use a listening station in my classroom, but the cords for the headphones are always tangled. What can I do to keep them from getting tangled up?
Thanks

I make my kids hang their headphones on their chairs. Before they put the headphones on they must follow the cord to make sure it has crossed the neighbors cord. Not perfect but much better. No more tangles but occasionally criss crossed.

I don't know what the setup is in your room, but have you considered not using headphones? I just have the kids sit close to the cd player. I usually have two students at a time and they often share the same book. It's kind of like buddy reading: elbow to elbow, knee to knee. The volume is at a preset level and they are not allowed to touch it. No more playing with the headphones!

We store each headphone in its own gallon zip lock. It started as a rule to try to keep head lice at bay (as if..) but worked well for keeping each cord separated.

I do the same as readerleader. No headphones (My reason is actually that I worry about lice and other germs on them). I have my listening area combined with my housekeeping area so its kind of sectioned off by my desk on one side and a bookcase on the other. I never have a circumstance where I need to do listening and housekeeping at the same time so it's worked out. The kids just sit on the floor and share one book (two kids at a time).
