Teacher Week '15: Sanity Savers

I swear I could conquer my whole To-Do list if I had more hours in the day! I am linking back up with Blog Hoppin' for Teacher Week '15 for Sanity Saving Tips

One thing I wanted to share with you all that I started doing a few years ago is using washi tape as labels! Y'all. You can write on them and they peel right off. No sticky stuff left over that you have to break your arm trying to get off. It's like Label Heaven. 

Here is a picture of how I used them on my folders. Now, I can reuse these adorable folders every year by peeling off the old label and sticking on a new one. Looks brand spankin' new! 

And before I go, I wanted to share a quick math activity that we did today. We are working on numbers to 20 this week, so today we created these number lines. 

My kiddos worked with a partner to create their number line using sticky notes. 

It also saved a lot of time because I did not have to prepare anything for this lesson! 

Be sure to check out Blog Hoppin' for several more sanity saving tips!


  1. You are a genius!! I saw your washi tape trick on instagram and loved how simple it is! We put sticky notes on our supply list, so I am always looking for fun ways to use them. Thank you!!
