I always find it difficult to be efficient in labelling school supplies; I want it done quickly but I also want it to look good! I have a new system that allows the students to label their own books while still looking like I did it (most of the time)!
I have colour coded each subject, and so they put the blue label on the book and it goes into the blue bin. There are also some that have shapes so I can just say get out your triangle book. Students have all their labels on 1 and a 1/2 pages, with 14 labels on each page. I made a template so each year I just have to put in names, and they are ready to be printed!
