Happy Wednesday! We're excited to bring you this week's edition of #EdHack, a weekly feature here at The Snarky Schoolteacher designed to bring you tips and tricks for your classroom to make your life just a little easier!
This week's #EdHack is a nurse and "I needa" kit for recess, and it comes to us from Mrs. Ledet, a Kindergarten teacher in Decatur, GA.
Mrs. Ledet started with a plastic tote, then added tissues, hand sanitizer, peroxide wipes, and bandages. She left space for her water bottle (self-care through hydration!) and the walkie-talkie that she uses to communicate with the front office if necessary. She has also added paper towels (which she puts in a gallon-sized bag so they are waterproof) and a bottle of water for rinsing. One year, she had a parent who requested bug spray be applied to their child when going outside, so it was handy to have a place to keep it!
Thank you, Mrs. Ledet, for sharing your #EdHack with us! Plan on trying this in your classroom? We'd love to see it! Tag us on social media using the hashtag #edhack, or show/link us in the comments below! We here at The Snarky Schoolteacher love bringing you sanity-saving tips to make your classrooms function more smoothly. Until next week... stay snarky!
