Getting Organized for School With Avery CanadaTuesday, October 04, 2016
Back-to-school has come and gone but when it comes to organization, it's a year-long challenge. If you haven't already figured it out, an essential organizational tip is to label everything, especially your kids' belongings. This year, I'm using Avery No-Iron Clothing Labels to make sure their jackets, hats and other accessories make it back home. They're easy to use and come in assorted sizes. Simply write directly on the label with a permanent marker allow the ink to dry and place it on the garment. And yes, they are washer and dryer safe!
For school supplies, I am using Avery Kids Self Laminating Labels. These are available in neon and primary colours, and are smear proof and dishwasher safe. All you need to do is lift the self laminating seal and write using a permanent marker or pen, remove the white backer and press the laminated seal down before applying to a dry clean surface. These extra durable labels are also great for lunch box items, bottles, sports gear, electronic devices and more.
Avery Labels are great to help keep teachers organized at school, too. My favourite set of labels are the versatile Avery Address Labels, now available in Easy Peel. I use these every year to create name labels for the nearly 150 students I teach so they can easily find their French folders and notebooks. This year, I tested out the Avery Design & Print Online templates and found some really cute graphics and design ideas. I probably spent more time than I should have personalizing these labels but it was definitely worth it. Aren't they adorable?
Can I just say how much I loved designing these name labels with #Avery Design & Print Online? #socute pic.twitter.com/lW9GZ8SXvy— Diana Mancuso, OCT (@TeacherMomOfTwo) September 10, 2016
And to save me some time, I used Avery Eco-Friendly Address Labels this year to print out a shortened URL that students and parents can access from home.
The link directs them to my FSL Symbaloo webmix that has a variety of cute videos, handy websites and various Quizlets that I have curated over the past year. By using these labels, I can quickly and easily adhere them to the inside cover of student agenda books and not have to fuss over cutting and pasting or having my youngest students copy down the URL incorrectly.
Because when it comes to French class, I need to maximize every minute while helping my students stay organized. Thanks, Avery Canada!
