Tape Your Rug Faster
It seems like the obvious thing. It seems like something I would have figured out already. But I have been writing on tape the wrong way since I started teaching.
I used to lay the tape out on the table, write the words, peel it up and cut one word at a time, stick the cut words to the edge of my laptop or a basket, and then hold the basket as I walked around my rug putting the tape spots into place.
And in a moment steeped in teacher-tired, it came to me.
It came to me as an unused clipboard I hadn’t yet put away.
Yes. A clipboard.
Stick the tape to the clipboard in strips.
Write the names.
Cut and stick to the rug one at a time.
Less peeling and sticking makes for longer-lasting tape… not to mention a teacher who is checking stuff off a to-do list faster!
Simple. I know.
