Label Yourself a Timesaving Teacher

Hard to believe how many months have passed since you stepped foot in your classroom! Back to school is an exciting time of year for students, parents and teachers. This year is sure to look a whole lot different, and we’re here to help you make the changes that are needed to create a productive, fun and most importantly, safe classroom setting.

Preparing your classroom for a brand new year is an opportunity for you to not only showcase the kind of teacher you are through the personal touches you add to your space, it also provides a chance to streamline your supplies and teaching materials so that you can save time and make the most of each day.

You’ll be busy getting things set up, so your labelling solution has got to be quick and easy to use! Here are a few ways you can use labels to organize your classroom.

Labelling your learning materials

In this new normal, kids won’t be able to share learning materials. You’ll need to label items like file folders, binders, textbooks, bookshelves – basically everything(!) to make sure each child knows which items are for their use and where to put them when they’re done. Brother’s PT-H110 portable P-touch label maker makes label printing a snap! Choose from 3 fonts, 14 frames and over 250 symbols to print customized labels with 1 or 2 lines of text. Its built-in memory stores up to 15 labels for fast reprinting.

Labelling personal classroom spaces

Labelling desks, cubbies, shelves and bins will be essential in order to clearly define personal spaces to limit cross-contamination and facilitate social distancing.

Labelling for hygiene and safety measure reminders

Let’s not forget about all the hand washing. Put up a few labels near sinks as a reminder for students on how to wash their hands properly. Labels can also be handy for any other high-touch surfaces that might require hygiene and safety reminders for your students. Brother’s TZe tapes are engineered with an innovative laminated tape technology. They are resistant to water, temperature, fading, abrasion and chemicals, they’re perfect for things that need to get disinfected regularly.

Take your labelling to the head of the class

All TZe tapes allow fuss-free loading and feature easy-peel split backings for quick label application. With over 60 colours and sizes to choose from, you can organize everything and even create colour coded systems for teaching materials – all while adding your own personality to your classroom!

The extra layer of responsibility placed on teachers this fall is not lost on us. We hope that our labelling solutions can help make getting back to your classroom as seamless as can be. We are at your side and are wishing you, your colleagues and your students a safe and happy school year.
