Thanks for sharing your ideas. I too use magnets to take roll and lunch count in the morning. I have also made it a class job to return the magnets to a start position. This way I know if someone is absent. As for the books in bins based on genres, I chose to label each book with a different colored marker (stickers can fall off) on the top. This makes them easy to recognize even when they're not in the right place. Finally, another option for bulliten boards is material. It lasts for years and never shows staple damage. - if you plan to wash the cloth over summer, be sure to wash it before you cut it to fit.
