Supply box for the whole table or individual boxes? Thoughts?

I’ve tried both ways and it really depends on your students and how responsible they are and whether they can share or not. This year we are using community boxes and it’s working well...I could not have done it with my students last year.

I believe in teaching community, so my supplies are for the table.

Supplies shared by the whole table provides students opportunities to learn to work together and build community.

I’ve had supply boxes for the whole table for quite a few years now. I think it does teach sharing & working together. If I need to restock items during the year, I do, and at the start of a new year I take what’s left in last year’s box and keep it for fill ins or if someone really needs the same item that’s currently being used. It works great and saves me a ton of money from my classroom budget. I teach 5th graders.

I love community boxes because they provide natural opportunities for problem solving.

I've used both but prefer a box for the table. Reached the students to work together and share.

Table supplies, with individual crayon boxes. I am somewhat committed to this, but have run into serious problems during illnesses. I had Hand, Foot, and Mouth in my class, and was I in trouble! Germs everywhere!

We have community boxes. As someone else mentioned, figuring out as a group how they’re going to care for and share materials does provide some great problem solving opportunities!

I had table supplies last year and my kids did not take care of the supplies. This year I gave them one box of crayons to last till December and they have pencil pouches containing 2 pencils. When they’re dull they make a trade with me for a sharpened one. They take a lot more responsibility than last year. I teach 2nd grade and most of them I taught last year in 1st grade

I teach K and I have individual supplies but only pencils and crayons. Seems there’s always one in the class who enjoys breaking the groups supplies. The scissors and glue are for each table group.

I’m seeing a Front end developer position for financial services lab on McK’s website. Does anyone know how much of that role is coding vs consulting? I’d prefer more of consulting while requiring a deep understanding of code but can’t tell if that’s the case here.

Has anyone seen or discussed this Petition for SHRM must support Black Lives Matter & the LGBTQ community? I’ve grown increasingly concerned and disappointed in SHRM’s lack of vocal support for employment protections for LGBTQ+ and black and brown workers, especially as a black woman in HR. It seems like SHRM is overly focused on what is absolutely “legal” and not what is right. I’m of the opinion HR professionals must not only be “legal” but have a relevant and compassionate stance

This week's tech mention is Piktochart. I came across these guys yesterday and I am stoked about it. If you look they help you build professional infographics. I like to use infographics as a leave-behind from my sales presentation. The flyers help my customers sell the solution up to management. The problem I have is I am not artistic. This service looks like it will allow me to take my ideas and put them in a format worth sharing. Go give them a look.
