Getting Organized with Stickers!

The beginning of the school year (like always) has got me like whoa. I have SO many great ideas to share with you all and am finally finding the time to get caught up. 


One thing I always purchase every year are sticker labels to go with my theme. I feel like I use them EVERYWHERE. Oriental Trading has a roll of the paint chip labels for a great price AND you get 100 of them! I knew I'd have enough for everything I planned to use them for and everything else I thought of doing.

Another bonus for this roll is that you can fold and rip the labels off, keeping them on the paper backing.


I always label our cubbies with student names, usually just sticking their Letter Link sticker right on the bucket. I bought all new buckets this year and wanted to avoid putting sticker labels directly on them.

Since I was able to keep the backing on these sticker labels I knew I could add the students Letter Link to them, laminate them and then velcro them to our cubbie buckets.


I used only the colors that matched the buckets that I had. I used this same method to label their IEP buckets in our 1:1 work area too, but didn't snap a photo of those!


I love how they turned out! The lamination from my small scotch laminator makes them super sturdy to apply to their cubbies.

While I was checking out the "paint chip" products that Oriental Trading had available I also saw these folders. I still needed student folders for the school year and these are perfect! Not only do they go with theme of my classroom BUT they also correspond with color coding for my students too! I'd be remiss if I didn't also point out the  $3.97 price for 8 folders!


My only mistake-- I thought I ordered 2 packs and didn't realize I only ordered 1 until I opened them the day before open house. -hahah whoops. Teacher brain! I had to scramble last minute for color coded folders for my AM section and that's why they don't match. 😳

I may even have to scoop up some additional folder sets for next school year!
