I am so excited about my cubby makeover I did last year!  

I like everything to be bright and colorful and let’s face it… the first picture is dull and drab!


I started by putting a regular old name tag label (with no student name) on a normal size construction paper. ¬†Then I laminated and cut them to size. ¬†I used clear box tape to tape just the front of the paper down to the cubby (it went under the cubby below.) ¬†Then when I get my student list I will print a 5160 set of classroom names and add those to the name tags. ¬†Now this year I will just place the tag right over last year’s name.
I color-coded them randomly for a purpose. ¬†I thought they would look nice if they were all colors on one row or column but realized that they would be more functional if I spread them around. ¬†So at the end of the day what I will say is… “If you have a red cubby please go get your things.” ¬†This spreads the kids out instead of them all clumping at one end of the cubbies. ¬†You can even color code them by tables if you wish. ¬†I move my kids too much to do that and I really like their cubbies being the same all year. ¬†You could easily reprint the 5160 labels though and color code them.
You also may notice the buckets above my cubbies. ¬†Here’s what’s in those buckets:
Blue – Dismissal Tags which you can click here to read about.
Green – First Aid Stuff so kids can help themselves.
Blue – Handy Wipes that come with our breakfast. We stockpile them!
Yellow – Class Wristbands which I use at recess so I can quickly ID my kids.
{I will post about those soon!  They are a must!}
My overall Central Management Bulletin Board is the hub of my classroom!
Hope everyone is enjoying the last days of summer if they have not gone back to work yet. ¬†I personally don’t look at my ‘report back’ date until August 1st. ¬†I just refuse to because it makes me sad. ¬†I know I report back sometime during the first week and it’s not the 1st. ¬†Call me weird. ¬†Plus I have Baby Brody’s first birthday on the 3rd so I really want to try to focus on him and his birthday instead of being sad that I don’t get to hang with him all day anymore.
