Today I just have a quick one. I wish I would have remembered to post about it when the gals started the linky because many people were still in school and I use it mostly at the end of the year. I am fortunate for the most part that I do not have to put everything I own into boxes when I leave my classroom, but I do have to label all of my chairs, book boxes etc. Instead of writing my name on everything, I simply write my name and room number on paper, copy and cut. My teammate taught me this one when I started working with her like 10 years ago.
I tape these sheets to my classroom chair, desk, computer chairs etc. so when our custodians clean all the classrooms in our hallway, they know what goes back in my room.
Something else that I do is print my name and room number on labels. I usually end up getting these for free from Vistaprint if I can. I put the labels on all of my staplers, and tape dispensers etc. That way when my smarties take them to study hall or out into the hallway to work, and of course leave then there, they get returned. Also, I have a teammate that often will send his students over for things, and then they get left in the wrong classroom. Using the labels just simply saves me from having to sharpie marker everything to death.Ladybug's Teacher Files or Elizabeth at Fun in Room 4B
