last school year was a real battle. there were several times when my boys went home with someone else pencil or book. a dozen times too when their pencil case was empty. they have just lost their pencil and eraser again! and we were all hopeful that by tomorrow, they could find their school supplies inside the lost-and-found basket.
this school year, we label almost everything. their textbooks and activity books got a name tag – front, back, and even on the book’s spine.
all their pens, pencils, erasers and ruler got names on them — everything!
this mother has high hopes that these name tags will help the boys’ belongings find their way home. yes, hopefully no more lost items and no more digging through the lost-and-found box.
