I could use some suggestions for how to store the books & CDs that are available for the kids to use in the listening center. I have this cute listening pod in my library. I just introduced it this week, so the kids are LOVING it because it is new. However, my system for storing the books & CDs from last year is not working with the new pod. Right now, I have the CD in a paper sleeve, along with one or two matching books and a laminated picture of the set each in a gallon-sized plastic storage bag. All of these sets were stored in the bins in the bottom of the pod (most of my listening books are too large to fit in the nice hanging bags that would fit on the hooks). The children are not putting them back properly - even after explaining the rules and modeling the process multiple times and working with the children while they are using it. As soon as I walk away, I come back to books & CDs all over the floor being stepped on. Some of my fours are doing ok, but I want the system to make sense to more of the kids. So presently we are only checking out one story package at a time and the children have to return it before taking another one. The two major problems with doing it this way are that it is very time consuming for the teachers and the kids keep having to take off the headphones, walk over to the teacher/bin, yell at another kid who is trying to take his/her seat and then take the new story back (tripping over the headphone cables stretched from pod to chairs). I really don't want to have to remove it - they love hearing the stories! How could I arrange the books & CDs so that they can be more independent without having to leave the pod until they are completely done with that activity? Do you think that larger bags might help (the books aren't terribly easy to get into the bags)? Or separate the CDs from the books like they show in the picture of the pod? Do you think changing the storage system will help, or do you think it will just take time for them to learn?
