Lifesaver Start-Up Box
Idea by Shelly, 2nd Grade Teacher, Parachute, CO
As I’m closing up my classroom for the year, I create a “first of the year” box that contains everything I want and need for those first few days. This box is a lifesaver for me. In it I stash labels, files, folders, name cards, tongue depressors, items for specific activities/games/assessments, magnets—the list goes on and on and changes every year as I change. This box also contains a wish list of new purchases I want to make for the beginning of the year.
