Poster storage

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I am trying to find ways to store my posters and other decorations for the classroom. I change the room often and am finding that rolling the posters and putting them in clear plastic containers ends up wasting so much space. I need ideas from other teachers about how they store their posters! Thanks in advance

I always put my posters inside the boxes that our poster board comes in. They are large, flat and very sturdy (plus it doesn't cost me anything). I then label them according to theme. For supplies that go with each theme, I store them inside the boxes our copy machine paper comes in. Once again, it's free and I can label them and they stack perfectly.

During the year I store them on a garment rack I bought at ikea. i can clip a few of them together on a pants hanger with the 2 clips and they hang there so I can find them. if/when I have to pack them up completely, I put them in wrapping paper boxes or other flat storage with WHEELS so I can fit it pretty much anywhere, so I DONT have to roll them because I dont like having to flatten them out, and so I can avoid lifting if possible because of the wheels

Would an art portfolio work?

I would roll them and put them into a cardboard tube, such as what wrapping paper comes on. I guess that method isn't working for you, though?

handy for those charts you use frequently
http://www.snaptab.com/

I have poster stored at home in wine/liguor boxes with the divided sections. Covered the sides with contact paper. Two rolled posters fit in each section.

I use an art portfolio. I didn't have a lot of space for large posters and I had to use of these for college. I was then able to keep it right in between my desk and a table, out of the way.

Scholastic boxes-Yes!

These boxes work for me. too. I label the sections-READING, MATH, SCIENCE, SOCIAL STUDIES. Key to using them is to replace the posters to the correct section immediately. This is a great way to work smarter, not harder.

By the way, in one new school where I taught, built in cabinets provided thin, wide drawers especially designed for such purposes. I heard teacher input went into the claasroom designs. Heaven!

Looks like a good solution

The SnapTab looks like it would work for our basement, actually. Since we both teach we have a couple of decades' worth of materials amassed so far, and are *always* looking for ways to better organize the stuff we keep at home.

I doubt we'd be alloed to fasten this to the walls at school; the building is new, and the district is still pretty firm about making structural changes...

Thanks for sharing!!

Rubbermaid

I found some rubbermaid boxes (they actually might be sterilite now that I think about it) at Target. My posters fit in almost perfectly. I bought three of them in May and moved my poster storage to those boxes. When I get back in August I plan on reorganzing and labeling those boxes so that I can find my posters easier.

I have mine in two boxes I bought at my local teacher supply store. But I looked at the brand name on them and found the company's website. www.trendenterprises.com

Then click on "Product category." It's about 12 products down, and is actually called "chart storage" but I use them for all my posters.

mhugs if I could hug you I would! That is such an awesome poster holder! I've been looking for something I could just stick in a room at home and hide all my teacher-y things without them getting banged/curled up and that, my friend, is it! Thank you! I'm really excited I no longer have to battle with rolled up posters and the whole flattening process!)
