How to Organize with PinHooks and Giveaway!

They are also a great price! You can get a 20 pack for $6 or a 40 pack for $8. You can purchase them directly from their website I am so lucky to receive this amazing product to review. I have used them all over my classroom and I am sure that I will continue to find more and more ways to use them throughout the school year.
The first project I did was organizing my center supplies. I have always used caddies and paper baskets, but after all the supplies my students did not have a lot of room to work! With PinHooks I was able to remove the table clutter and put in on the wall! I will use the clipboards to attach a sample of the work the students are to complete at that time. All items (excluding PinHooks) were found at the Dollar Tree or Dollar General and many came in multiple packets. The supply labels are from the awesome Susan Dow and you can find them here
I used them at my writing center also! The table is so small that I have there and they helped so much to give the students more room to work. I originally saw the hanging baskets when Mr. Greg from Kindergarten Smorgasboard posted them. I put cards and envelopes in the basket for students to write letters during center time.

Students love doing calendar time! At the beginning of the year we do it all together, but eventually students will lead the class with a partner. Using PinHooks I hung the buckets where students were able to get the items they needed. The last thing I did was put a clipboard outside the classroom door where people can put notes or anything I might need. 

Needless to say, I LOVE them! I do not think I will buy thumbtacks every again. I am so excited and grateful that the amazing people at Pinhooks are giving away 10 (20 pack) of PinHooks away on my blog. Thank you so much! Just enter below, I will be checking to verify entries : )
Good Luck Everyone!

  7. I'd hang buckets for supplies behind my small group table and by calendar math!

  8. I would use pin hooks in my classroom to hang baskets and to hang my birthday crowns. I always have a hard time finding a good place to store the birthday crowns. I use a binder clip, but a pin hook would work so well with a binder clip!

  9. Wow! Where do I start? Where could you not use pin hooks? :) I would use them to help hold cords. Our Pro board is ridiculously far from the plug ins, and I am always trying to find a way to hang and organize them. I have a traveling word wall board, and they would work great for my word packs. I wish I had known about these little hooks a long time ago!!

  10. I have a few things on binder rings that I have hanging up on my boards, but the regular push pins just aren't doing the job too well. Pinhooks would work great!
