The boxes of 20 new iPads!!!!
I decided that since we are a First Grade classroom, the iPads would need to be protected, so I bought 20 covers from Solidmate for about $8.00 apiece. They are really good for the money and pretty solid without being too heavy. Then I numbered each iPad both on the device itself and on the cover. My intention is to have each kid use the same one each time so they can keep any of their work or projects housed on their "own" iPad.
I needed to figure out how to store them while I wait for the sinking trays to arrive. The boxes that they were sent in from Apple had these slotted trays that each iPad fit in. I took these trays, numbered them and then cleaned off my shelf in the classroom closet so they would fit.
The final thing to figure out was how to charge the iPads. I couldn't charge them in the closet because there isn't any power in there and it would get really hot for them anyway. I went out and found some power strips and bought a heavy duty extension cord. I set up several stations that allowed space for the iPads to charge and not have them be in our way.
