What will they think of next? Keeping technology tools and other resources in your classroom organized can be a struggle. When I came across this awesome product a few weeks ago I knew I had to share ideas for using Dry Erase Tape in your classroom. From labeling and organization of both techy and traditional tools to announcements that change daily, the possibilities are endless.
How To Use Dry Erase Tape in Your Classroom
- Labels Dry erase tape can be used to label just about anything. This is especially useful for labels in your classroom that change throughout the week or school year. For example, if you are sharing a cart of iPads with a few teachers in your school you may have temporary student labels for which iPad students are using during a particular activity.
- Book Bins One thing I love about classroom libraries is how fluid they can be over the course of the school year. When you’re looking to reorganize your books or move from picture to text labels, this dry erase tape makes it easy to switch it up.
- Logins If you’re in a Nearpod classroom or use Kahoot all of the time, place some dry erase tape in a space in your room to jot down the pin number for these tools. This will make it easier for students to login mid-lesson.
- Word Walls Word walls should not look the same in September, January and June. Use dry erase tape to make it easy to change up the words on display.
- Do Now If you have a new do now activity of prompt each day use dry erase tape to create a space where you can quickly refresh the daily activity.
- Supply Bins Whether you’re labeling the bins with extra chargers or looking to organize paper and pencils, dry erase tape can come in handy.
- Objectives Use dry erase tape to post the daily objective on the board and wipe it away at the end of the day.
- Schedule Changes Did something pop up on your schedule today? Do you have to reschedule an after school help session? Is there an assembly during period three? Post schedule changes on the board that may change each day.
- Meeting Spaces If your students are working in small groups or you are setting up stations for a rotating activity, dry erase tape can help you label each area.
- Name Tags Create name tags for student desks with this wipe away tape. When you’ve mastered your groups names these labels can be reused for a quick note or special message.
- Storage Packing up? Moving to a new classroom? Switching schools? Use dry erase tape to label your math mainpulatives, posters, and favorite read aloud books.
