Organize your big book pointers so students will read more and ENJOY exploring large print! This is part 4 of the DIY series on easy and inexpensive pointer ideas: how to keep them organized for your kindergarten, first or second grade classroom!
I’ve kept big book pointers behind my easel and near to the year long big book literacy center – both which you’ll see pictures of. I’ve tried each of these organization ideas in my classroom and highly recommend choosing what works for you and what you have on hand.

Organizing Big Book Pointers
Use a canister or container that has a wide base for stability and multiple inside inserts to help pointers to stay upright and easy to grab when teaching.
A summer utensil caddy organizer is a perfect way to keep pointers safe when not in use and make them easily accessible for students too! This option works great if you have shelf space to spare.
Organizing Tall Pointers
Use a tall canister that has a wide base for stability or wall-mounted item with a mid-size opening to best hold and organize your tall pointers.
Try a plastic shopping bag wall-mounted caddy if you have wall space. Use a tall plant container (or umbrella holder) or inexpensive non-glass vase if you have shelf or floor space. These will work great for the giant fly swatters!
