Throw It Away Instead of Packing
Packing Your Classroom with Intent and Label, Label, Label
Label everything is if your life depends on it. There are many ways to go about this, but I LOVE these Post-It Note Labels. (affiliate link) They are the bomb. (I am stuck in the 90s today, deal with it.) They come in a variety of colors and sizes and the whole back is sticky, BUT they are sticky like a Post-It so when you peel them off there is no residue. I use these bad boys and write out every last thing in each box so that there are no surprises or mysteries when it comes time to unpack.

I mean really this is the most important one by a landslide. You and your students are excited about summer. I know you are. You should be, BUT don’t wish away your time with the little people you have worked so hard for/with this year. Take this time to soak them in, every annoying moment, because you know you will miss them!
