Table Caddies {with a promo code}

As most of you know from experience once a school year has come to an end you start planning for the next.  I, too, am guilty of this.  I still enjoy my summer and take breaks from school work, but I truly enjoy what I do and find it hard to let it go for so long in the summer.

Next year I'm doing a polka dot and apple theme.  Everything will be black, white, green, and red.  I wouldn't normally go for red, but the tables and chairs in my classroom are red so I needed it to all match.  I'm quite happy with my progress so far.  {I'll post my apple decor unit as soon as I'm finished with it.}

Ok, now on to my new table caddies... the whole purpose for this blog post.  Thanks to the wonderful folks at Mardel.com I now have the perfect table caddies to keep my kiddos organized at their tables.  I always have trouble finding just the right basket to fit all of the materials in a useful way so I was super excited to find these utility caddies from Mardel.com.  What I love most about these baskets is that there are two big open compartments vs. small divided areas that don't fit anything.





The awesome thing for y'all is that Mardel.com is offering 15% off all plastic storage by Romanoff with the promo code 'StorageSpecial15'.

I've dolled up my caddies to go along with my theme and now I'm trying to decide exactly how I want to organize the materials in them.  I know for sure that each student will store their crayons in a small food storage container like pictured below.  I have used this for a few years now and it's been amazing.  I just print out an address label with each child's name and stick it on.  Last year pencils were quite the battle so I'm trying to figure out exactly how to deal with that.  I'm leaning towards little tape flags in different colors on each pencil so kiddos know exactly which is theirs.

  2. Those turned out so cute! I'm doing the same as you and going with a theme that matches my furniture this year. I think it will finally be the winning classroom theme. I've loved my ones in the past, but matching to my furniture I think is just what I need to make it all feel complete! Even if primary colors aren't my favorite, they do just "Scream education" :)

  3. Just adorable Jessica! I already ordered the filetastic in chevron & now I'll be back to order the red storage bins too! Are you able to share the super cute table number labels you used to jazz up the bins? I would be greatly appreciative! :-)

  4. I just reread your post about sharing the apple unit upon completion... more more question...would you be including printables for a teacher toolbox with the apples? I just bought the toolbox from Home Depot, but haven't found the right color combination for the labels. :-) THANKS A BUNCH!!!

  5. Where will you store the children's crayons? I have tables and I was thinking about putting them in pencil pouches and keeping them on the bookshelf until we need them.
