Sweet & Simple Saturday Post #5

Happy Saturday!! And you know what Saturday means around here...


Hope you have had a good week! This week, I have been working in my classroom off and on and am excited to have it all put back together BEFORE July is even over! I have NEVER been able to access my classroom so early in the summer, so I totally took advantage when I heard that we were able to get into our rooms. Time to get in gear because the kiddies are coming back soon!

You may remember this picture from this blog post on my math manipulatives organization in my 4th grade classroom:


I spent some time today preparing the containers for my new batch of firsties. While I was doing that, I decided that I needed a fun, cute label for the containers!




I love the way they look! So, today's freebie is the base-10 blocks label:


I included a few different versions for you to choose from. Enjoy! Leave some love if you download--thanks! Have a great weekend! :)

    1. From The Dollar Tree! I have one for each student, so it was a $25 investment. If you don't have a Dollar Tree near you, you can order online from their website!

  2. Thank you so much! Like I said on FB I knew I needed these for something. I will hit dollar tree instead of Target, or maybe both LOL.

    Thanks so much for the labels!

  7. What a clever idea for storing the blocks! These blocks are always a mess in my room, no matter how much my students and I try to keep them clean! I am definitely going to try this thanks!

  15. I FOUND THEM!!!! Go to this link: http://www.dollartree.com/Surefresh-3-Compartment-Storage-Containers-57-oz-/p339370/index.pro
    I could NEVER find them on the Dollar Tree website and then I saw specifics (brand name, etc.) on a pinterest board for Singapore Math. They are Surefresh 3-Compartment Storage Containers, 57 oz. They are on back order but I ordered them and will have them eventually. SO EXCITED! :)

  19. I did a similar thing with my ten blocks. I put a class set into container, but the containers did not have compartments in them. I love the compartments better because it organizes it better. When I get back, I'm off to Dollar Tree. Thanks for the idea and labels.
