Organizing Your at Home Supplies for Remote Teaching (or your Teacher Table)

Teaching remotely is tough, whether you are doing it from your classroom or home, so this blog post has some advice for you when you're getting organized for remote teaching! 

Keeping Papers and Supplies Under Control

Bins, Bins, and More Bins

Plastic or other bins are super handy for holding anything and everything you need - base ten blocks, Fundations cards, or handy Bitmoji signs like these:

These bins on Amazon are affordable and sturdy (clicking on any image will take you to Amazon to learn more)!

Stacking trays are not just for student work - they can also hold supplies for different subjects if you teach elementary or sorting supplies but keeping them handy for "today" and "tomorrow".

Wheeled Cart - I have one of these but from Office Depot. It has been invaluable for taking things to and from school. Also 2 days a week at school I work out of a room upstairs so I bring all my supplies and reading group bins up and down with it. Well worth the investment!

3 tier cart on wheels - I have one at home and at school. This is so useful! At school, the bottom shelf hold individual student folders, the top shelf holds manipulatives and the middle shelf is for whatever I need!

Tech Organization

Monitor Riser/Laptop Stand - I am not going to lie but I use cardboard box! haha! Many of my fellow teachers though ordered risers like this affordable one.

Cord minder -Tangled cords and cords everywhere is a pet peeve of mine so I bought something similar to corral mine!


Keep Practical Supplies Handy

White boards: I always keep a white board right next to my laptop and chrome book. I use it to write vocabulary or quickly address an error or question without having to use technology.


Markers: Expo markers are a teacher favorite and I always keep one or more right by me, too! I prefer the fine tip or ultra fine print.
Pencils cups and small supply containers - also, it's annoying when a pen or pencil I need rolls off the table or I can't find it when I need. I love traditional pencil cases, plus check out this cute expandable, zip up pencil cup! How cute!       

So do you have any additional advice for getting organized for remote teaching from school or home? Let us know and I may add it!
