Shelve Your Stuff!

My students need shelving to store their books and supplies while in my classroom to free up space for movement.

My Students

After 15 + years of teaching 5th grade Reading/Language Arts/Social Studies, I made a career change last year to 6th grade Science. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made! I loved my 5th graders and the subject areas, but I felt like I wasn't learning. I needed to make the change to make sure I stayed vital not only with the kids, but also with my career. I changed rooms and halls leaving behind a large storage closet. I gave away 18 boxes of books! Lucky for me, half of my students in 6th grade were also my students in 5th grade. This year I taught my two Gifted and Talented classes from the previous year along with my two new classes--an advanced class and an inclusion class.

Little did I realize how much more room a 6th grader takes up!

My room has 10 science tables that I group into 5 "tables" along with stools for the students. Storage for the students personal items is non-existent! I need a place for the students to store their books so we can easily move about the room during experiments and group work.

My Project

Unrestricted movement in a science class is necessary! With science tables, my students have nowhere to store their personal books, binders, and supplies. With wire shelving, my students will be able to "Shelve Your Stuff" to keep the area clear for movement. Top shelves will provide needed storage space for the multitude of supplies used in my science classroom.

With 6 Tier Wire Shelving Garage Shelving Storage Rack Metal Shelves that I have selected, I can easily move the shelving to make up additional space for activities that require more.

These shelves are a ready solution for my 6th grade science classes!
