Managing supplies

Now that school’s back in session, you may be noticing that your neatly arranged classroom supplies tend to fair better when students are at home.  After I noticed my scissors slowly dwindling in number, I began storing them in a 2x4.
I made some more holders like this for markers, and they worked pretty well.  The kids dubbed them “pen islands,” and the inappropriate name stuck.

Feeling more industrious, I came up with this industrial-sized tape dispenser.  The roll of tape was $5 at a hardware store and lasted at least 4 years.
