Storing Laminated Posters and Resources

Hi friends!

If you're anything like me, you're a printing and laminating addict!

I have SO many resources that I can't possibly use them all at once or my classroom walls would look like a collage of posters!

 So, what do you do with all of your unused posters and resources?

How do you store them?

I have several forms of storage but here are two of my favourites:

1. File folders!

In my first year of teaching I printed and laminated a bunch of resources. I had nowhere to store them! I found some file folders which ended up being perfect! The folders are alphabetised which means you are able to pop smaller resources under sections that fit certain learning areas. For example, I can store old maths resources under 'M'...

 ...and literacy resources under 'L'!
(sorry for the upside down label!)

File folders make it very easy to move old resources around and very easy to find when you want them again. However, they don't fit larger laminated resources, which brings me to...

2. Large display folders

I have many A3 sized (almost double letter size paper) posters that I've enlarged from a smaller size print. I moved from first to second grade a few years ago and found I no longer needed some of those posters.

These large display folders fit laminated A3 size posters perfectly!
 I'd love to hear how you store your laminated posters and resources!

  2. I never thought to use the display folders for storage, I use them for class big books, now I have another use for them, thanks!
