It's the first week of the summer holiday and what am I doing? Yeah, I'm bust prepping for next year.
So, I'm super late to the Teacher Toolkit train... by about 5 years LOL, but I kept seeing them on people's Instagram and decided that one would be useful in my attempt to keep my classroom organised and my desk tidy next. I had a look at some different labels on TPT but I wanted it to match my classroom décor so I made my own, which you can buy from TPT.
I purchased the toolbox from Amazon. There are different types/sizes but I chose this particular one because I liked the colour - it's bright which will fit in better with my classroom.
Then I printed and laminated my labels. Yes, I keep a laminator on hand at home for little projects like this! I definitely recommend getting one if you don't have one. When they labels were finally laminated they colours looked really bright!
Once that was all done, I cut them out and used double sided tape - a lifeline for any teacher! - to attach them to the outside of the drawers. I did try them on the inside but because the drawers aren't 100% see through it dulled the colours. They're laminated and stuck on well enough that they shouldn't come off.
Actually really excited to get this in my room and fill it up, but I'll need to sort out all the furniture and stuff currently piled in the middle of it first!
