Fingers Crossed!

As I go through this whole interview and waiting process, my mind keeps spinning with all these ideas that I could use within any grade level classroom.  I have lists of things that my mentor teachers did that I absolutely loved and want to implement within my future classroom.

One thing I really loved was having book boxes for each student to house their current reads, reader's response notebooks, and post-it notes for quick thoughts.  So I found cardboard book boxes that are 4-inches wide, come in a 6-pack, and in an assortment of colors.  Instead of putting names on them, I figured I would make labels that have numbers and students would know their corresponding numbers.

I made them so that they could print on Avery labels (6874) so that they will already have adhesive on them.

Next post I will share the substitute binder that I've been making to get me prepared for any absences I could have over the school year.

**fingers crossed for my latest interview for a Kindergarten position!!**


  1. Thank you for stopping by and visiting me! I tried becoming a follower but I don't see a follower widget here.

    I hope you get that position!

    Can't wait to see your future projects!

    1. Mrs. Sheehan,
      Thank you for stopping by! I have fixed the follower widget and it is now added on my page!

      And thank you for the positive vibes about the job! I should know something late next week!

      Ms. W

  2. I like to use numbers instead of names too! That way I'm not having to relabel things every year and I can spend more time preparing curriculum and finding cute ideas on pinterest.

    Good luck with the job!

  4. I used baskets this year and the kids loved having a place for their books and notebook. As an added bonus it was a great way to give them a break by asking them to go to their book baskets and get what they needed. We had ELA from 8:30 - 12:00 without breaks so it was just another little way to get them moving. Hoping your interview went well.
