Hope you have had a great Sunday! After church today I was
L-A-Z-Y...lazy, like 3 hour nap lazy!!! What in the world? Many thanks to my sweet husband for wrangling the kiddoes so that I could catch up on a few zzzzzzz's. He is the B-E-S-T!
A summer Sunday means more than just rest time for me...it also means it's time for another organizational link up with the Peaches over at the Primary Peach, and this week I am sharing a few of my favorite teacher must-haves for labeling a cute and organized classroom!
Ready for the countdown...here we go...
Invest in a label maker! No doubt, this is one of the best teacher gifts I have ever received! When sweet Erika gave it to me a few years ago, I wondered if I would ever use it...boy, did I ever! My label maker is perfect for quick labels on files, student materials, notes home, etc.! My husband even loves using it to organize his home office materials.
Use scrapbook paper in addition to construction paper to back your classroom labels! Scrapbook paper is so inexpensive, yet has a million uses in the classroom. Very often our local Michaels runs individual scrapbook sheets on sale, which is a great opportunity to stock up. I also love the books of paper sheets that are also available! An example is pictured here, and when books/paper pads like this are 50% off, you can really get a lot of bang for your buck!
How about using a classroom camera to include photos on your classroom labels?! This makes classroom clean up a snap for students, as well as adds a bit of pizzazz and personalization to otherwise boring labels.
Last but not least, home laminators are the B-E-S-T! I used Christmas money from my dad to buy this larger model in December, and literally have already used it a hundred times already! Laminated labels last so much longer than un-laminated ones, and I have also found the thickness to be better when I laminate on my home machine!
Have a great week, and remember to stop by the Primary Peach so see all of the posts in this organizational linky!
