Teaching Math to three different classes along with a Social Studies and a Science class, makes having an organized turn in station, pretty important. I decided this year I needed one central location for all the baskets and trays I have for collecting homework, as well as the fact that it needed to be on a table that sat lower to the ground, in order for the shelf I have to be an appropriate height. So what better table to use then a coffee table! I actually had this old drab wooden table in my basement, but it was orginially purchased from a resale shop for $10.
Now I have the perfect turn in station where my kids can hand in their homework and daily math folders, as well as see if they might be "Missing Something"!
