Organization Tips: Hook Rack

Have you heard of a hook rack?  I bought this one at the Dollar Tree.  If you watched t.v. shows in the 70's, you might have spotted this hanging in the kitchen above the counter.  Moms hung coffee mugs on it to save cabinet space. This hook rack is just as useful in the classroom as it is in the kitchen.

Hang it near your computer center.  It is a great way to keep your headphones organized.

Use it to organize your restroom passes or keep your ID handy.

Hang it near the door.  Put a class list, dry erase marker, in a dry erase pocket.  I bought this one at the Target Dollar Spot.  You can use this to take attendance at fire drills.  If you have a challenging class this year, take it to specials and lunch.  It is an easy way for the teachers to document who had a hard time following rules.  All they need to do is put a tally mark on the chart with the marker.  At the end of the week, you can add the tally marks to your documentation folders and then erase it so you're ready to go for the next week.

I've never thought of using one of those, but I do remember one being in my granny's kitchen! ha! What a great idea - and cheaper than a bunch of command hooks. Thanks!! :)

I love the idea of giving a class list to the specials' teacher to mark those having a hard time. Thanks!

I have been looking for a way to store headphones for my laptops! How cheap and awesome! I originally thought about purchasing the command hooks and hanging the headphones there, but this way seems so much better! Thanks for sharing!
