|Sorry for the terrible glare on this picture!|
Please remember to link back to Tara's Monday Made It post to check out what other creative teachers have been up to this summer!
This Monday Made It was pinspired! I saw all of these wonderful drawers that said Grade, Copy, File. I LOVED them, but wanted to fancy up my drawers I use for guided reading. These drawers sit on a shelf behind my guided reading table and hold all of the books and forms for each group, as well as various word work and reading supplies.
|Again, sorry for the glare!|
Sweet, sweet, sweet Rachel provided the traditional Grade, Copy, File options in three different designs, as well as a blank template for each design, all in a PowerPoint file! YIPPY! All I had to do was insert a text box on top of the design and PRESTO... customized drawer labels! Then, I printed, laminated and cut to size! Easy peasy!
At first, I was going to Mod Podge the labels to the inside of each drawer. I tried one drawer, but quickly realized that the laminate was preventing the Mod Podge from drying. SOOOO.... I resorted to packing tape. I taped all along the inside on the top and bottom of the drawer. I even wedged some tape into each corner, which was a tad tricky! These drawers are a teacher's dream! They not only hide all of my guided reading materials, but keep them within hands' reach! I. LOVE. THEM. Plus, they match my new color scheme in my classroom!
