I am trying to be more organized this year for the supplies I use in my classroom to keep it clean and tidy. Additionally, I want my students to be more accountable for getting the work on days when they are absent without disrupting my lesson.

      I have seen many teachers use an over the door shoe rack to hold cleaning supplies. Not only can you store spray bottles but often times clorox wipes, paper towels, and rubber gloves can fit in those compartments. It would be most safe to keep this hanging on the inside of a locked storage closet in order to keep your classroom safe for your students.

        One great way to make students more responsible on what they missed, is having a daily folder of assignments that students can get their missed work. If you want to go more digital, you can always use a program like Google Classroom, where you can have all of your students join, and have access to all of your announcements, assignments, and handouts.
