Tippy Tuesday~Cubby Names

I tried so hard to come up with an exciting title for this post, however, I am at a loss.  Luckily for me, the idea is a really good one.  Most primary classrooms these days usually have some sort of cubbies, giving each child a space to call their own.  In my previous classrooms, students had lockers to put their personal belongings, so cubbies were used to hold any paperwork that needed to go home.  I love the idea of cubbies.  However, I never quite figured out how to label them properly.  I like to use thematic stickers, like monsters, to go along with the classroom theme.  But then, the end of the year comes and I am left with the stickers.  Yeppers.  Still stuck! 

Pinterest to the rescue!  While perusing recently, I came across the most brilliant idea to solve this sticky problem.  Instead of using stickers, use binders clips with the students number on them.  To make them a bit more personal, I would probably add the student's names to the sticker and maybe some sort of little graphic.  Then at the end of the year, I would probably give them to the students, and voila, next year make new ones with new students.  A relatively cheap solution to a major pain!

    I am a new blogger and just found your wonderful blog! Thanks for sharing this great idea!! I hate having to deal with the stickers every year! And mine don't even stick that well so I end up having to add tape on top of them! Will definitely be using these next year!
