For my first post, I wanted to write about a DIY project I made because I love, love, LOVE doing craft projects. This summer has been dedicated to getting ready for my new classroom this since this is the first year in four years of teaching I know I have a job in the fall more than two weeks before school starts! YIKES!!!
With all of the time I have this summer (yeah, right) I decided to spend more time organizing my classroom so I can start the year off right! The first DIY project I did was inspired by the Clutter Free Classroom, which I altered by making my own labels for magazine files that I bought from Target for approximately $2.39 each. She bought the magazine files from Ikea for cheaper, which were made from cardboard, but I wanted something I could use from year to year and easily change out the labels if I moved to a different grade level.
Teaching preschool this year, I don't need labels for each day of the week, so I created labels to easily access materials I use often. The labels are from 3AM Teacher on TpT and are FREE.
After creating the labels, I printed and laminated them, and glued them on with hot glue. The labels can be easily removed and changed out if necessary. Not bad for my first DIY project!
