Now, I know that we're all blissfully enjoying summer break.
But.....school is right around the corner! At least, it is for me.
So even though you might not quite be ready for all the back-to-school yet, its coming your way...ready or not!
When I was organizing my classroom for summer and packing up all my belongings, I ran across the decks of cards that we used this year. Cards can be such great learning tools, but can also be a pest to keep organized.
This year, I tried something a little different and it worked like a charm!
This is one of those oh-so-simple, why-didn't-I-think-of-this-years-ago ideas.
For each deck of cards, I used a different color Sharpie and made a little dot on the cards. Then I used the same color Sharpie to dot the bag they came in. Anytime the cards got mixed up, my kiddos could easily sort them out and put them in the right bag.
I think this year, I'll try to find some soap containers from the dollar store to store them in. I hear these little guys hold a deck of cards perfectly! And I could easily match the color of the Sharpie to the color of the container :)
