Teachers and parents know all too well that summer is coming to a close and back-to-school season has arrived. Here at VELCRO® Brand, we’re strongly committed to improving the world of education for children and teachers around the world—in order to help create and inspire the next generation of innovators and inventors.
The VELCRO® Brand Classroom Makeover
Most recently, alongside Sabrina Soto, we had the opportunity to sponsor a “Classroom Makeover” contest in honor of Teacher’s Appreciation Month. Mrs. Desiree Limkeman from College Heights Christian School in Joplin, Missouri was selected from hundreds of entries as the winner of our first classroom makeover contest.
Working with Sabrina, CHCS Staff and the Velcro Companies team, we were able to redesign and transform Mrs. Limkeman’s 2nd grade classroom into an innovative, fun, and bright space for learning. The classroom makeover was a life changing and inspirational experience for all, and while we wish we could give every educator their own makeover, we did put together a few classroom makeover tips—using some of our favorite VELCRO® Brand products, of course.
Stay Clutter Free
Supplies, decorations, and miscellaneous knick-knacks….we know that classrooms are full of odds-and-end supplies. Our new PRESS-LOK® Bags are the perfect way to keep your smaller items organized and in one place. With the variety of bright colors and size options, they are the perfect solution to adding a bit of light to your room as well!
VELCRO® Brand Industrial Strength – Low Profile fasteners are the perfect product for hanging big letters, posters, and wall decorations to decorate or designate a specific area (such as a reading corner) in your classroom or home.
Even better, it’s also the perfect place for storing things such pencils, markers, and pens. Which we all know sometimes have the tendency to disappear before our very eyes. This pencil case hack using VELCRO® Brand Industrial Strength tape, holds pencil cases on the side of bookshelves; keeping writing utensils secure and in-one-spot, all day long.
Keep cubbies together by using VELCRO® Brand Thin Clear fasteners! Cubbies stay together but can also be moved apart, perfect for all the nooks and crannies, and moving parts within a classroom. We purchased these adorable orange cubbies from Walmart. Boom! Another perfect way to add a dash of color to any classroom.
Create More Space
Less clutter, more space. That’s our motto when it comes to an organized classroom. We know that can be tough, but using VELCRO® Brand Industrial Strength Extreme fasteners to hang clipboards, bulky (but cute!) clocks and larger items, you’re eliminating clutter and making space for more important things… like learning!
