PECS Storage System & Giveaway!


Hi friends! I'm dropping in briefly today to show you how I organize my PECS using a toolbox from my local hardware store...AND to offer you a giveaway opportunity!
 This is the toolbox that I use. It is a 39-drawer toolbox and you can find it from Ace Hardware here. Other sizes could work too, but I like this one due to it having both large and small sized drawers. Some of our more frequently used PECS require larger drawers, and this toolbox is very deep, so even the small drawers store alot of pictures and also have a divider in each allowing you two sections if needed.

I then organize my PECS into categories. So some examples of the categories I have are:
nouns
verbs
people
toys
clothing
school supplies
colors
attributes
snacks
sentence starters....and so on.
The PECS you see in the picture above are from this set. I highly recommend this purchase if you are just starting PECS. You will have just about every symbol you could imagine right at your fingertips without the stress of having to create symbols you find you need as you go or worrying about what program you will need to create them. While I do occasionally still need to make a symbol from "Smarty Symbols" or "Symbol Stix," this set has been a major timesaver and is worth every penny. The symbols are all pre-cut and ready to use!

You can find this symbol set here and it is currently $15 off!!

Here is a close up look. I just love this system and I know you will too! I've tried binders with trading card pockets, hanging plastic shoe pockets, and cigar boxes even! This is the first system that has worked well and lets me easily retrieve my PECS easily and quickly as I need them!

If you're interested in the PECS Toolbox labels they are available here, but don't go anywhere just yet! 

I'm giving away one 39-drawer toolbox just like this one, to one lucky winner and I'm even throwing in a bonus! You'll also receive a set of my labels for FREE!

To enter, just pin the image below or pin from here and leave your pin URL in the comments! I'll choose a winner this weekend!

 Good Luck!

WINNER ANNOUNCED: Mrs. Bloemer

  9. Entry on behalf of Elizabeth Sparr:
    First of all, thank you for keeping me motivated during the summer for my precious students. I was reading your blog post about the giveaway but I could not enter because I don’t have a blog or Google Account. I tried to list my Pinterest link but it would let me complete it. Can you email me with suggestions at beth_squirt@hotmail.com ?

    I did this from my phone so I hope it works! I pinned to the board called activities for autism. I think this is a great way to store pecs for the classroom! I have mine in a tub currently but I like the idea of sorting them out by categories and having a place to neatly store them so they are always easy to find. Thank you for the great idea! And thank you for the opportunity! :)

  61. OMG, This is amazing! Thank you for giving it away. I have a similar system for my schedule pieces, but really need to do this for my pecs as well. I have so many and feel like they are all over the place. Summer Organization Project!

I LOVE reading your comments, and replying! But the only way you'll get my reply is if you are a blogger and have that set up on your Blogger account, or if you come back to your comment to see if I've replied,(which is unlikely to happen). So please leave your email when you comment so that I can be sure you get my response!
