I am currently at the NEA conference, but have scheduled a few posts for while I am away :)
I fell in love with these desk baskets from Dollar Tree... Oh Dollar Tree, how do I love thee!!!
We are projected to have 17-20 in our classes this year, so I will most likely have either 5 groups of 4 or 4 groups of 5 desks in my room. Went ahead and bought 5 baskets just in case. Here are some pics- they were taken at night, so the color is a little off.
As I was debating between green and blue (should I do just one color or a mix was my debate), my hubby walked up and was like "you know you are going to get the blue". Gosh, he knows me!
So, now I am trying to figure out what to put in them and what labels to use. I need your help!
1. What all should I put in these? I had group baskets several years ago, but my memory is kind of fuzzy on what I included. My students are switching classes this year and I will be teaching reading.
Here is my list so far: hand sanitizer, highlighters, pens, colored pencils or markers (need to check my supplies back at school). What are your suggestions?
2. Here are the labels I am playing with so far...
