Keep all the booklets and books in your classroom intact by just using a strip of Duck Tape®. All you need to do is rip off one piece of tape that is the size of the edge of the book and tape the strip to the spine. It's that easy!

HACK #2 - Color-Code Shared Supplies

Do you find yourself reorganizing your classroom's shared supplies bins more often than not? Use a color coding system to help keep the supplies where they should be. Simply choose a coordinating Duck Tape® color with the color of the supplies bin and wrap the tape around the supplies. When you find a random marker or glue stick on the ground, you’ll know exactly where it belongs!
