This SINGING TIME ORGANIZATION SERIES post focuses on how to stay organized when teaching!  This is one of my favorite posts in this series if I’m being biased!  Maybe it’s because I’m in love with this adorable caddy!

Camille's Primary Ideas: SINGING TIME ORGANIZATION SERIES Part 7 - When Teaching

Occasionally I stumble into Primary a tad late (I’ve got 6 kids – enough said!).  Primary is ready start but I needed to hit the library for some chalk, grab my magnets from my bag and set out the choosing sticks!

Lately my issue is I just want to start singing immediately after walking into the primary room.  I like to take advantage of singing during transition time!

Well, I’ve FINALLY figured out how to solve all these {well, my} issues with one cool product!

A caddy when teaching…

I thought it was perfect when I stumbled upon it on Amazon! This is an affiliate link below where I make a small commission at no cost to you if you purchase.  But know that I only suggest what I love!:

This is what’s inside:

It holds all our choosing sticks (see mine that I made HERE), chalk and eraser (which is not pictured, but it will fit perfectly in that back slot!), magnets (see the ones I bought HERE) and push-pins (just got some at Wal-Mart) or Amazon sells them too:

I also added some pens (mostly for the presidency member conducting so she can pass one out with the week’s random sign-up sheets!).  There’s even a slot to spare (it’s killing me – what can I put in there??).

Never lose your pens:

These little primary-kids-pencil-toppers are to attach to the pen-lid.  Now the pens don’t mysteriously make their way out of the primary room:

Have I ever mentioned I LOVE Susan Fitch’s artwork?  You can find her originals of these cute kids HERE.

My document pictured above is available in my Resource Library.  Instructions for accessing my Resource Library can be found at the bottom of this post.

I printed mine on white card stock, cut out each one, glued them back-to-back, laminated them, cut them out again and shoved a small wooden dowel in between everything.  I had to do a little ripping and re-gluing but they came together.  Then I had some decorative masking tape and taped the dowel to the pen lid.  Here’s a close-up of how they turned out:

 

Easy storage after teaching:

Our caddy is stored in the primary closet.  We bring it out when the room is set up then put it away when we clean up.  Super easy, organized and pretty dang cute!  Oh, how I love a good caddy and this one is no different!  It helps me stay organized when teaching singing time SO SO much!

One day I might find more items to store.  Since the caddy is metal, the magnets will stick to the outside, freeing up the bottom drawer for whatever else we find useful!

Random, but I also picked up a red tablecloth on Amazon to add a little more color to the primary room just because:
