Supply Organization for Centers

I used to get so frustrated when my students would misplace their glue sticks, crayons, etc. during centers time. I decided to double up on supplies and make supply caddies for my centers! This is a perfect way to ensure your students have everything they need to complete their work, while still staying organized. 

I love how small these supply caddies are! They are perfect for supplying my students with the tools they need at centers. These tools here are perfect for my word work center. It has enough glue, scissors, and highlighters for the amount of students at the center. This is such a great way for you to organize centers around your classroom!

When we are not doing centers, I keep these center supply caddies on a shelf in my room. If a student runs out of a glue stick or other tool they need, this a quick easy way for me to grab what they need.

Happy Teaching!


  1. Thanks for sharing your great tip on small, center supply caddies. Where did you get your small containers?

    1. Hi Vicki! I found them at Taget in the dollar spot when you first walk in. They usually have awesome resources there!!
