USING THE REALLY GOOD STUFF BASKET AND BIN LABEL HOLDERS


If you love to label all your baskets and bins in your classroom these label holders from Really Good Stuff are great! 
Really Good Stuff Label Holders
They clip on to almost anything and have a clear plastic cover that will protect your labels.  Another great thing is you can easily move the label clips around to update/ reorganize your classroom year after year.

Here is a picture of what the front and back of the clips look like:

I purchased my clips off of Amazon so I wouldn’t have to pay shipping.
The only thing I’m not a fan of is the cardstock rainbow label that comes with it.  I wanted to keep with the black, white, and red polka dot theme in my classroom so I made these labels that fit in the clip holders.

Here is what my classroom library book bins look like with the label clips on.

They turned out so cute!

Due to popular demand I have added these editable labels to my TpT store!  There are 26 color choices to choose from in different black and white designs.  You can grab them HERE.

Here are some other ideas on how you can use the label clips in your classroom:

The clips fit perfectly on caddy supply bins.

I wish I would have discovered these clips long ago!  They work so well on each of my student's book baskets! 
Individual Student Book Baskets
Their baskets are filled with books from my classroom library on their individual reading level.  They get their book basket off of the shelf and read whenever they have free time.  For example, when they finish their work early, at center time, etc.
Student Book Bins
I used to have each student’s book basket labeled with their name with a laminated cut out that had a book ring attached to the basket.  They did not hold up very well.  The hole punch for the book ring would always break.

Using these basket clips work so much better!

 To make these labels I just inserted a clipart picture on the labels.  I used the kid clipart from EduClips.

I love coming up with new ideas each year on how I can improve my classroom organization.  One of my favorite organization bins I use are these Sterilite 3 drawer storage containers.  You can find them in white or black.



You can also find them in different sizes which makes them so versatile in the classroom!


 

You can use these drawers for storing classroom supplies, teacher supplies, paper supplies, teacher copies, use them as student cubby boxes….the ideas are endless!
