Back to school

Last year, my first full year in the art room, was a learning experience; one of the main issues I saw in every class at one point or another, art caddies.  The art caddy is a place to store all the art supplies for each individual table. Even though the caddies were supposed to look clean and the same for every class, some classes were better at cleaning and organizing than others.  Here is an example of a clean, fresh, sharpened, art caddy; all the supplies are in their place and (in theory) they will all look like this at the beginning and end of each class.

By having this example for my students at the start of the year, and assigning students to check each table; the disappearing pencils, erasers, and messy art caddy problems will vanish!
I also was sure to show how chairs are pushed in and the art caddy is in the middle of the table (below)
