I like labeling things. I like to know what's inside a container when I look at it. This not only saves me a headache, but it also allows my students to be more independent! They can locate items in a jiffy!
Notice obsessive use of labels.
I also like labels because it makes containers more adorable! I'm all about more adorable. And so, here's a freebie--Days of the week labels (seen in use below)!
Last summer, the Monday through Friday carts were all the rave on PT. I couldn't find one and I wasn't too fond of the setup anyways (too wide and unstable) so I bought some sterilite containers instead. I stacked them (attached them with velcro! I love velcro!), added these labels, and now I TOO have a great Monday through Friday cart. I even have a drawer for extras!
