I am so excited to be teaming up with RubberStamps.com to share some ideas for using teacher stamps in your classroom! If you don’t have a personalized teacher stamp yet, trust me- you need one! So here are some of my favorite ways to use teacher stamps…
Avoid the Copy Room Black Hole!
When you are trying to eat lunch and check your email while making copies, it’s so easy to leave your original paper in the copy machine. If you stamp the back of your paper, it’s more likely to get returned to you! This also helps if you have some support staff who make copies for lots of teachers at the same time!
Keep your Library!
Creating a library in your classroom is a huge investment! Teachers are always borrrowing books from each other or sending books home with little ones for practice, but we never want our books to get lost! Stamp the inside of your books and teacher binders so other teachers and parents knows they should be returned to your classroom.
Prevent Carpal Tunnel!
This may be dramatic, but it does make your hand tired to write the same message on papers 25 times! #teacherproblems One quick stamp is so much easier, and kids love them!
Make Kids Happy!
I ordered my son a personalized stamp, which he LOVES! After about 5 minutes, I had to hide it to keep my entire office from staying “Property of Rusty,” but it did remind how much kids love to stamp things.
You could put a “Please sign and return” stamp at your mailboxes. After kids get their papers, they could stamp a form that needs signed and returned. I’m sure no one would forget to grab their paper on that day!
These self-inking stamps would also be great at a school play center because there is not a messy ink pad and a wet stamp to clean up and store! Just stamp and it’s done with no mess!
