Classroom organization is a constant battle! Searching through other teachers' classroom organization ideas on Instagram is a top hobby of mine! As a special education teacher, I had curriculum and resources for multiple grade levels. I needed to be able to easily find and use all the things that I had, so I was constantly re-organizing. Here are some of my favorite organization supplies that I used in my classroom!

5 favorite ideas for classroom organization with picture of classroom


1. Rolling cart

These rolling carts are awesome for storing materials for small groups or your morning meeting/ circle time. I kept mine in the front of my classroom by the whiteboard with all of my markers, lesson targets that I switched out each month, and letters for our letter board that we used to write the date each day. I also have one that I use for a prep cart in my office.

2. Teacher Toolbox

As a SPED teacher, I used my teacher toolbox to store extra visuals and schedule icons. But they are also great for school supplies. If you need some cute labels, I have tons of designs here.

Ok, I might have a slight obsession with these task boxes, but they are amazing! I love using task boxes to store all of my independent work tasks. They are also great for individual sets of manipulatives.

4. Pencil pouches

Pencil pouches are my go-to every year when the school supply sales hit! I Velcro them to the back of my student's chairs so they can keep their supplies organized. They are also great for storing manipulatives or work tasks.
