Day Three of CTP!

Wow, today was a whirlwind. How is it that any of us make it through the last month of school without loosing our minds? We honestly have something special happening during the month of May except one. Today we had an evacuation drill. Thank goodness the weather was decent as we marched the children down the street to the local Civic Center. All went well and we got on with our day...

So are you wondering what our Day Three CTP product will be? Well, wait no longer! 

These are the BW Collection Jumbo Library Pockets. They fit my classroom decor perfectly! 

They are also available in other designs. Check out the funky chevron pattern below. How cute would these be in a classroom?! 

 The pockets measure 6 1/2 x 9 inches. They are awesome for storing miscellaneous items around the room. I use them to store bulletin board items that need frequent changing. Inside of this pocket I am storing the months and other pieces for our birthday board. I do the same for other classroom displays. They are so amazingly handy. One helpful hint - I laminate them and then slice along the top opening. This makes it even more sturdy and I don't have to worry about the edges tearing as I take items out each day. 

What could you use these pockets for in your classroom? I'd love to hear your ideas!

  1. I love to use pockets next to student writing on the hallway bulletin board so that people can put positive comments on the writing. My students absolutely love this!

    1. That is an awesome idea. I am going to pass that idea along to some of my co-workers! :) Thanks for sharing!

  2. Oh gosh, doing so many things with the pockets comes to mind..I would definitely use some for behavior chart sticks!

    1. They are great for storing just about anything! I have them all over my classroom. And I like that they are decorative so they don't stand out. They just blend into my decor! :)
