This poster card was given to me by my great aunt who retired after teaching Kindergarten for many years. I found this so helpful that I had a friend build me another one so I could keep adding to my collection. This is a really simple idea so hubby's should have no problem making you one:) All you need is a few sheets of plywood some screws and some wheels!
To organize your poster cart cut out strips of poster board to stand up above the top of the cart and label them with your unit titles such as Geography, Immigration, Sound, Magnets, etc. Then behind each label you can put all the posters you need for that unit so you can easily find them when you're ready to teach that unit. My aunt who taught Kindergarten organized her poster cart according to the months of the year. She had all the resources she needed for the month of January behind the "January" label (for example) and so on. I think that is a great way to organize for the younger grades where so many of their teaching resources are themed based and go along with the different seasons. I taught 4th grade so I liked to organize my cart(s) according to units but I also had a few "theme" labels such as Christmas and Valentine's since I had posters/decorations for my room that I'd put up during those times.
I bought a roll of clear plastic from the hardware store and cut a piece to fit over the top of one of my carts to store it for the summer (in pics above). It was a great way to keep dust off my posters. A crib sheet also works nicely (as seen below)! I used a crib sheet on my larger cart which is now being stored in my messy basement:)
