One of the things that I had ordered were these Universal Basket and Bin Label Holders with Labels:
I had made basket labels last year for my classroom library, but I had just taped them to the baskets. This worked great for awhile, but a few of my students weren't very easy with them and they kept falling off. Overtime, I got tired of taping them back. I was happy when I saw these in Really Good Stuff at the end of the school year.
One of my tasks on my Classroom To Do List yesterday was to get these holders on all of my baskets. My OCD kicked in when it came to writing the name of the baskets on the labels (I really don't like my own handwriting.), and I really wanted to somehow use what I had created last year. So, I measured the white space in the middle and resized my files from last year to fit in the area. I printed them off, cut them, and taped them in the middle. This not only gave my students a word description of each basket, but I also put a picture on each one for my nonreaders. Wouldn't you know that right as I was printing them, my colored ink ran out! I couldn't leave them this way, and I was lucky enough to find an extra ink cartridge in my office. So I had to reprint them.
I loved how they turned out!
They clipped right on my baskets and made them looked nice and organized.
What to you use for your Reading basket labels? What are your favorite products from Really Good Stuff?
Can't wait to show you in the upcoming week what else I bought to help me be organized during the upcoming year. :)
