How to hang pocket charts?

I was wondering how you hang your pocket charts. I don't have one of those rolling stands to put any on, so I am looking for alternatives. I have a wall full of closets for student coats and bags. I was wondering if perhaps there was a way to put them on the doors somehow? Or perhaps on the bottoms of bulletin boards or chalkboards?

Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks!

this is probably not the best idea but...

I staple mine up and it works great. You can't even see the staple holes when they come out. If this is an option for you by your closets, I'd try it.

Oh! If you have lots of doors, what I did once was get a couple of those door hook things.... you know, the kind that slip over the top edge of the door? Then I just put little binder rings on the pocket chart and slipped those on the hooks.

Another thing (that I saw mentioned on the PT board) was to get one of those laundry racks that you can get from Wal-Mart or Target for pretty cheap, and then use the binder rings or shower curtain rings or zip-ties or twist-ties!

I've also stapled mine to a bulletin board like the pp mentioned.

Hot glue

Some schools won't allow this so ask first but I hot glue mine to the wall. I run a strip of hot glue along the top and stick it where it needs to go. When you want to remove it, just peel it off. The excess glue on the chart will peel right off too.

I have stapled mine, taped mine, and used the removable hooks. The removable hooks do not work as well.

I was thinking about buying those portable clothing hangers. I ;ve seen them at linen and things, dollar store, and Walmart for about $10. Is this a silly suggestion/idea?

Coat Hanger

I use those pants/skirts coat hangers that have the clips made into them and I hang them on the cabinet doors, doors, etc. Also I have used those 3-M plastic hooks that you put up but can be removed easily.

I hot glue magnetic strips onto mine so that they stick onto my whiteboards. The ones on the walls I just stick up with tacks.

I hang mine in my window using a tension curtain rod. Works great.

I bought a clothes hanger from Wal-Mart and I hang things from it! A pocket chart would work easily.
It works great!

You can use a skirt hanger or two with over the door hooks (for towels) or with wreath hangers. If you're allowed, you could hang some hooks on the walls too to use with your skirt hangers. The skirt hangers also work well with a garment rack as someone else mentioned.

You can use those command strip hooks (by 3M) - they don't ruin surfaces and come off easily. They also come in different sizes.

Our walls are cinderblock so I tied yarn between two pipes and hung the pocket chart from the yarn with clothespins.

Big push pins--these work pretty well.

help and ideas! I think I might use a combination of a few suggestions, including staples on my doors and hot glue magnet strips for the board. Thanks!

Hanging Pocket Charts or Flip Charts
Old 07-24-2008, 05:08 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #16

I used a hook that screws into the wall (or wherever) - I don't know what this hook is called - it is all one piece. Then I put book rings into the holes at the top of the pocket chart or flip charts and hang them on the hooks. Really sturdy and I can hang more than one chart at a time.

Clothing Rack from W-M
Old 08-05-2008, 03:30 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #18

I bought one of the rolling clothing racks for $10.00 at a Family Dollar store. The rings came from Carson Dellosa (sp?), and were inexpensive. For about $15.00 I have the same thing others would have paid over $50.00 for! It works great, but would suggest you buy two packs of the rings as the grommets in different charts may not be aligned perfectly. Love the idea of hot glue--did not consider that, but will try it this year.
