A while ago there was a discussion on the Boardmaker listserv about storing picture symbol cards. Many, many ideas were shared.
I happen to currently store my 1.5x1.5 symbols in a 100 pocket counting chart, which works out so-so. Which means I can fund the symbols I want, but no one else bothers to look. Thus, like every other special needs teacher in this branch of the field I am constantly on the search for better ways to store my picture symbol cards. Right now I am thinking about finding a better way to store the 1.5 by 1.5 symbols and my 3x3 inch symbols. Here is what I am considering for now:
- Hardware drawer organizers (above)
- Cardstock Organizer
- Picture Container
- Portable Adjustable Organizer
- Photo Storage System
What do you do?
Some other storage I am considering is:
- Notions organizer six tray (pictured above) which allows you to put pictures into the lids, I am thinking about using this to organize sensory integration/oral motor items and make them more self-serve for some of my students
