Lisa: Just as the old Staples commercial sang, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” My classroom is almost ready and I want to share with you some of the uses for duct tape in my room:
When students are finished early with their work, they go to the Red Drawers/Shelf to find another activity to work on rather than wander the room!During the day the students might have papers for me to check. Rather than have them give them to me, they put them in these magazine boxes that are labeled according to the color of their tables! A name card will be slide down the front pocket so I can switch them around when I change their tables!
Even my cubby labels are now made with duct tape! In the past we made paper labels and covered them with clear tape only to have them come off during the year. Using duct tape with a permanent marker solved the issue of having to go back to fix these labels all year long!
Here’s a close up of the labels. I took this picture yesterday but these labels are from last year’s class! They endured a whole year of 5-year-olds!
Have fun setting up your classroom!
