Organizing Guided Reading Using a Thirty-One Round-About Caddy {Tried it Tuesday}

Anybody else think it should be Friday already?!  

We are expecting 2-6 inches of snow tonight, so it looks like I may get a little nap in tomorrow! Anyway, I wanted to stop in and link up with Holly from Fourth Grade Flipper for an organizing tip. 

I recently bought a Round About Caddy from Thirty-One. As soon as I saw it in the catalog I knew it would be perfect for using in the classroom. 

I decided to use it to add a little extra organization to my guided reading area. There never seems to be enough room for all the supplies we need and sometimes those supplies need to be portable, so this was the perfect solution! 

There are two of these narrow pockets on each side of the tote. They are perfect for holding a couple pairs of scissors each!

The bigger mesh pocket on the outside is perfect for highlighters. 

The inside is perfect for holding glue bottoms and collecting trash during cutting and gluing activities. 

Do you have a round about caddy? How do you use yours? 


  1. It's so cute!!! Love it! Another teacher I work with has one and I fell in love with it when I saw hers! It seams pretty steady, like it won't tip or anything! I love Thirty-One!! If you get a snow day, take a nap for me! ;O)

  2. I always want one of everything in the Thirty One catalog. Unfortunately, my wallet yells at me every time I go on a spree. I never wait until Saturdays to nap. I believe in napping....every day. It's my favorite thing to do after school.

  3. I love to see pictures of how other people are using different bags! This looks like it works great! I have a similar tote that I use for scrapbooking essentials and I love it. Thanks for linking up and my fingers are crossed for your snow day tomorrow! :)

  4. That is a great little caddy, and I hope you get to enjoy some snow! We got a little this morning, but of course it's already melted now...I just want some pretty snow to play in!
