So I should state I'm a real stationary nerd. I looooove buying things for my classroom for both myself and my students and I don't mind spending my own money to do it (within reason). What has angered me this week though is that I spent about £70 on my classroom tables stocking them with scissors, glue, pencil colours, spare pen, whiteboards, etc etc and stuff has gone missing. This has even happened when I check them every lesson and although I'm in a really good school as I've just started I don't think I've established myself enough at the moment to be able to have stationary that won't get taken. At the moment my stationary is kept in boxes, with lids, and inside of those are smaller boxes to section them off. TO THE POINT: How do you store your stationary? I teach a subject that involves a lot of sketching so pupils need access to equipment and I don't believe they should have to spend extra money to provide equipment for a subject, we have a lot of Pupil Premium and it's not fair for them to have to spend even more money or experience a disadvantage. I have access to a laser cutter/workshop if anyone has made their own holders, it would be great to see pics if anyone has any available. I want something where I can literally walk past the table at the end of the lesson and spot if even one thing is missing, so nothing in boxes basically. Thanks, sorry for such a long post for such a small issue!
