Teacher Toolbox and a B2S Freebie!!!

As I wait to get into my classroom, I find myself keeping busy with project after project. My latest project is My Teacher Toolbox...
{Terrible iPhone pic, I know}

I saw one of these tool boxes on Pinterest and found mine at Lowes. I added paper and borders to match my classroom colors. I can't wait to fill it up with supplies! I'm excited to have one place to go to get everything I need!!!

We go back to school on August 24th and are not {officially} allowed back into our rooms until the 15th. But, I am already putting together all of my B2S activities. These include an auto-bio poem, a letter students write to themselves, a scavenger hunt, etc. This year I created one more to add to my collection:

Just a little something for my kiddos to get to know each other!

Happy B2S!!!

  15. Nice toolbox. If I didn't already use totes & tubs for my supplies, I might be tempted to rush out and get a toolbox (or steal one from my husband's shop!).

  25. I love the tool box! Yours looks so wonderful and organized. It would be very helpful for me since I am a co teach classroom and have other teachers in my room and this would be a very way to help them locate materials as needed. Would you be willing to share to share these labels? Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Brittany,

      Unfortunately, I don't have that one saved on my computer. I do have a hard copy in my classroom. When I finally get back in there in the next couple of weeks I can scan and share. Good luck with your first year!!
