Art teacher schedules can get crazy. “You mean I only see the second graders every third Tuesday of the month, but I see all the kindergarten classes every Monday?

Watch the video to see how it’s done.

    Brilliant! Just rearranged my drawers by day!! Now I just have to color code the grade levels. Thank you!

    • Awesome, Kathy! Don’t you just love to color code? :)

    Amanda where did you get your plastic “tubs”? Were they pricy?

    • Hi Catherine- Just saw your comment! I got them at Walmart about 5 years ago. They were maybe $7-10 dollars each.

    Hi! I love this idea. Where did you get your plastic storage bins to hold the student’s artwork?
