Hey Teachers, What's The Coolest Or Most Useful Thing In Your Classroom?

What do you do that makes all the difference?

Teachers, what do you set up or keep in your classroom that is incredibly useful and cool, either for you or your students?

Do you hang over-door organizers to make a cell phone daycare, where students can charge their phones AND not be distracted by them?

Maybe you have a prompt corner, where you keep dice and popsicle sticks with journaling prompts and ideas.

From here.

Do you have a specific way you like to set up your bulletin board (or your whiteboard/chalkboard), so it's functional, looks good, *and* doesn't cost too much $$?

Maybe you help kids stay more organized by tying inexpensive canvas work aprons to each of the chairs.

But it could be as simple as using two clean cans as a spot for students to grab sharp pencils.

Or keeping colorful dollar-store bracelets that students can draw from a pouch to break into small groups.

If your tip's on personal organization, that's great too — how do *you* stay organized, and do you have any little tips, like using binder clips to label trays, like this?

Or sorting all the workbooks on your shelf by subject, using magazine organizers from the dollar store?

Or something completely different that's not listed here?
