Backpacks on chairs

We do not have hooks or lockers. Students keep their backpacks on the back of their chairs. This drives me nuts. 🤪 Can you help me brainstorm ideas for backpack storage?

I bought two long, low plastic storage tubs. I think theyíre probably meant for under the bed. Put them on the floor under a (useless) shelf and thatís were the backpacks went.

I truly believe the people who design classrooms have no idea what goes on in there.

I've had my students line up their backpacks, standing straight up, under the front whiteboard. It was a dead space for me and because the packs had to be upright as best they could, I never tripped on them when using the whiteboard. At another school, I had the students line the backpacks up outside the room. No problems with others touching the packs either.

I actually do have the kids hang them on their chairs. However, I tell them to make sure their zipped up and ask them to hang them horizontally. In other words, put both straps down the back of the chair. This keeps them from falling off when people pass by. It also avoids the crowding of students at the backpack/coat rack during morning arrival and end of day.

Horizontal is a great tip! I hadnít thought about that. If I have to leave them on chairs, Iím using this!
