As I reorganized my classroom library this year I realized how droopy my book bin labels had gotten! I like the idea of yarn - taping labels is always annoying...."Is it straight?", the hard-to-read shiney-ness, and gross goo if you ever try to remove the labels... Here is my solution: PIPE CLEANERS!
*I'm probably not the first person to think of this, but I was super excited about it!
Here's why I'm loving the pipe cleaners so far!
1) label hangs straight.
2) pipe cleaners won't get droopy over time.
3) it fills the hole on the label (which weirdly always bothered me with my yarn...).
Simply thread the pipe cleaner in and out of the label and then push each end through your bin; twist the ends tightly on the inside and wrap the excess under your twist.
Hope this helps your classroom set-up! :)
