Yes, that does say toothbrush storage, and yes, this is a classroom post. Depending on the "level" if you will, of special ed. that you teach/work with you may or may not be working on brushing your teeth in the classroom setting.
Up until this year this is not something that I have done. However, I worked with a student of mine over the summer on this skill and I want to continue it in the classroom and make it part of the routine for all students.
BUT how on Earth am I going to organize it? I don't have one of those nifty classroom toothbrush storage boxes (nor do I really want one) and I want a way to store them so that each student can find his or hers items easily.
I brainstormed this idea for a while, always checking out various storage options in Target, Walmart, Marshalls, you get the idea.
Then, VOILA! I was struck by a stroke of genius while in the Dollar Tree.
SNAP. SLIDE. PENCIL. BOXES.
They are PERFECT! And I can label them with each student's name! Not to mention they were only $1, a perfect price in my book!
I may or may not be keeping them in the basket shown, but that's where they are for now. And as you can see, my students haven't started school yet so they haven't picked their toothbrushes. And, that is a "normal" size tube of toothpaste that fits inside the box!
Do you work on tooth brushing with your students in the classroom? How do you store yours and what tips/advice can you offer me?
