Target Tabletop Pocket Charts

Okay, so I know someone posted a couple of weeks ago about how they changed the pocket charts up a little using clear plastic and some type of glue.

I picked up some of the pocket charts (knowing full well that they didn't have see through pockets and that I was going to have to change that.

Went to Michaels today and came across Zebra Duck Tape (YEAH!). So, I put 2 and 2 together and here's what I came up with.... Any feedback is appreciated.

I think it looks awesome! You can't even tell that it's not one big pocket chart.

I just bought a bunch of the Target pocket charts myself and I was trying to come up with a way to make two look like one. Did they have any other designs for the duct tape? The zebra prints will clash with the rest of my pocket chart bulletin boards and that will drive me insane.

It looks GREAT! Can you tell us more about how you did it? What did you use for the clear part? Did you tape down the existing pockets?

Michael's had basic & bright coleonors (red, yellow, blue, npink, neon green). They also had tie dyed type print.

Thanks for the positive words! I've got 4 more to get done....Not too time consuming but I wanted some feedback before I finished doing them.

Happy Shopping!

Here's how I did it....

Okay, so went to JoAnn's and got some of the clear tablecloth material. Its $3.49 a yard (I got 1/2 a yard and had a coupon, so it only cost me 94 cents). Then, I traveled on to Michaels. Picked up the tape ($3.99 and a 50% coupon made it only $2.00).

So, I layed out everything on the table. Just took and cut the material down to the a little less deep than the pockets on the pocket chart. Cut a piece of tape and then tore it in half (lengthwise). I taped down the bottom of the pockets (showing a bit of the tape for pretty looks).

Once all of the pockets were taped down along the bottom, I ran a piece of tape down the sides (and working it down). Then, I did the other side.

Not sure if these directions are clear enough. Just let me know if you need some more directions.

It was fun (just finished pocket chart number 2. Now, to go out and buy more at Target??

missvicki77, That was me who posted about using clear vinyl and E-6000 glue. After doing 2 charts, I considered using duck tape. I already have blue and red. Then I thought, "How do I cut the tape?" What did you use to cut the tape?

Your zebra print is WILD! (in a good way)

Start with a little cut.....

AND TEAR IT! I was really amazed. It tore pretty much straight (I cut a little crooked, so it tore a little crooked).

I've just finished up my last pocket chart and I'm definitely pleased with them!

Hope I helped someone....

I saw those table top pocket charts at Target and passed them by thinking, "How will I use those anyway?" Your idea makes them more usable to me, but I still wonder how you will use them...What grade do you teach? I teach 4th and don't do a whole lot of center-type activities, so I'm not sure where I would put the table top organizers...

What are your ideas?

I'm going to be starting Daily 5 this year. I'm figuring I can use them during word work time. Also, early finishing students can use them to play pocket chart-type games (math facts, etc.).
