Organizing Construction Paper
I was eager to help the kids organize construction paper for our art area in the basement. We purchased large accordian-style folders and a big bin. Each colour of paper was sorted into its own folder. Similar to when we organized our writing materials, organizing paper in this way offers lots of choice for children when they are creating as they consider what shade of the needed colour to use. It also reinforces math concepts since papers are sorted by colour. There is plenty of paper in this bin to last for months yet it only takes up a fraction of the space it did before it was organized! A neat and easy way to help children be responsible when creating art and in charge of their own learning materials.
