BACK TO SCHOOL RESOURCES: taking classrooms from drab to fab!
I am about to head off to a Food Festival today (Yep….. FOOD!!! – I can’t wait) but before I head off I wanted to share with you 2 resources I have recently created and have put out into the world! They’ll be ideal back to school resources for you to kick start the new school year with!
Maths Equipment Labels
As you may know, I am heading back to school soon (on Wednesday in fact) so this week I have spent some time cleaning and organising my new GRADE 2 room. One of the things I had to do was organise my Maths Resource Trolley. So I created this cute labels for all my tubs that are on my trolley. I haven’t finished yet as I am going back on
Tuesday, but this is what I’ve done so far….
**I will post pics of my complete classroom next week!**
This was the BEFORE shot of my Numeracy Resource Trolley
This is after I began labelling each item.
So, I decided to share this pack with you all so that you can organise your Maths Equipment too!
It just makes things so much easier throughout the year – the children will know where things go too and you won’t get all those random bits and pieces piling up in places around the classroom. Not to mention, they look pretty! ;)
There are 42 Various Labels included – for a full list of what’s included – click on the link.
I like to make sure my classroom library is neat and organised throughout the year and that can’t happen unless each basket is labelled and organised WITH the kids! They need to take ownership over it in order to make sure they keep it tidy. So I created these library labels and as a class, we chose the various categories to label our book baskets. They turned out great!
They come with editable spares for you to add in your own text. (You will need Powerpoint installed on your computer to do this).
On Thursday when the children come in to school, they will bring in their book packs and we will go through each item as a grade and allocate certain books for each subject etc.
I like to keep the children’s books in labelled tubs in a central part of the grade and to make things easier (for myself and the children) I put a large front cover on each of their books so they can determine which book is which immediately!
I created these little front covers for my students books – Each has a cute black and white picture on them for the kids to colour in and make their own. Then they (or you) can write their name on them and stick them on the front of their books with either glue or sticky tape around the edges. Otherwise, you can print them onto colour paper and voila! They’re ready to be glued to your students’ books!
These print in A3, but if your kids books are A5, just print them 2 to a page :) They’re some of my favourite back to school resources, especially when I get to see my students add their own personal touch to their books!
Ok, that’s it from me with back to school resources folks! I’m off to eat and drink and enjoy the long weekend!
(Eeek! Last few days of freedom before BACK TO SCHOOL!!!!)
