Each year at back to school time I make my students "Back to School Survival Kits". You can read more about how I create those HERE. For the past few years I have also had a student teacher begin the first week of school as well. I want this person to feel as welcome to my room as all my students do on their first day.
This past year I found these adorable empty small paint cans at Dollar Tree and I knew I would find a use for them. You can use almost anything as a container for the survival kit, but I like the "cute factor" of these cans. I decided to use one to make my Teacher Survival Kit for my student teacher. You could also make these kits for new team members at your school or just as a great back to school gift for your colleagues.
Inside this can I put jumbo crayons, hand lotion, hand sanitizer, starburst candies, animal crackers, paper clips and rubber bands.

I created a label, printed it my colour printer and then made a sticker using my Zyron Create a Sticker maker. I got this puppy last summer at Walmart and found a million and one uses for it. You can print out almost anything, run it through the sticker maker and voila, create a great sticker you can use immediately. I made cute chalkboard labels for all my school supply bins last year using this machine. LOVE IT!
I found the adorable ribbon I tied to the side of the survival kit at Walmart too!
I hope this post has inspired you to make your own "Teacher Survival Kit" for a student teacher, a colleague or a teacher's aide.
