Task Card Storage & Organization Part 2

I can't believe it has been over a year since my original task card organization blog post!  If you haven't seen it, stop by THIS post.  I still love this set up, but I've been exploring other options to share with you.  I love a little variety in my life, and I like to have options!

In addition to the few posts I have about organizing task cards, I am also compiling as many different task card storage and organization options as I can at my task card website HERE.  Check it out for even more ideas from other teachers and bloggers!  While you're at it, you can learn more about task cards and how to use them!

Without further ado, here are a few fun ways that are Teaching With a Mountain View Tried and True!  I went out and got the supplies to try these three methods to make sure they worked with my cards.

First up is a double-decker bathroom organizer from Target.  It is the PERFECT size for the folders from the Target Dollar Spot.  I love that the bottom drawer folds out for easy access!  A fan on my Facebook page shared this find, and I had to go out and grab it myself.  Brilliant!


Next up is another method that I am incredibly excited about.  I used an over-the-door shoe organizer, and both task cards and the file folders work perfectly.  It is totally out of the way but still easily accessible, and it makes use of otherwise wasted space!  If you go this route and don't already have the file folders, I really like it without the folders, too.  It looks just as nice, and you will probably be able to fit more cards without the folders.  Speaking of fit, I could stuff A LOT of task cards into each pocket.  After all, it is made for shoes, and shoes are bulky!
Have I mentioned that I love this?  I am going to get another shoe holder because I could very well fill an entire one with literacy and an entire one with math.

If I had more than one topic (especially in the literacy sections) in a holder, I put separate labels for each one.  A few of the sections have 3 labels because there are three different skills in it.

 I used this system as a reason to get a label maker.  I can't believe I have never had one before.  My family isn't going to know what hit this soon as I have time to start labeling things that aren't school related!

Here is a peek at what it looks like with the file folders.  Definitely works!

Here is the last thing I'm working on...  I love for my students to work with fluency task cards.  I always have students, though, who need even more practice.  I am making individual fluency task card booklets out of Dollar Store photo albums.  They are very thin, and they fit 32 cards perfectly.  They will keep them in their desks and practice at different times throughout the day.  This would also work well for center task card storage and organization.  I have seen it done by many people including Rachel Lynette at Minds in Bloom!

I would love to hear how you organize and store your task cards!  Shoot me an email at or leave a comment here if you would like me to share your tips and tricks on my web page.
