This year our PTO supplied each class with a class set of ear bud headphones. I am so thankful but I cannot be the only teacher out there who kind of despises these little things. HA! They get tangled, the kids can’t keep them in their ears, and then there was the argument over who was taking care of them and who wasn’t. Now while all of these problems haven’t been solved, I have finally found a storage solution that works for me. Did you know that they make pocket charts for cell phones?? I didn’t even know this was a thing. Apparently, they are used in upper grades for teachers to store student phones during class. Who would have thought right? lol Now back to my point…

I purchased this pocket chart off of Amazon that has been absolutely perfect. It came already labeled with numbers so that was an even bigger bonus since all of my kids are already assigned to a number for other classroom things.
Now each student keeps their set of headphones in their pocket and I have no more mess with plastic bags. Each set of headphones is also labeled with a sharpie so I know who they belong too if some friend decides not to put the back properly.
I do have a set of regular sized headphones from Lakeshore. These do fit in the pockets but you have to bend them some. You can click here to grab this pocket chart on Amazon.
Now this has solved my storage solution. If anyone has any ideas on how to keep these things untangled, you let me know!
