Summer Camp 2019 Welcome - Day 1

Welcome to Summer Camp for Mission Friends Teachers 2019!

Summer Camp will be a fun week to get ready for the upcoming year in Mission Friends. We’ll have ideas, free downloads, and even giveaways during the week. Be sure to visit the Mission Friends Facebook page each day for our fun Summer Camp!

At a real camp, the camp counselors get the cabins ready for the campers to arrive. For our first day of Summer Camp for Mission Friends Teachers, we have several ideas to help you get your classroom ready for your preschoolers. Check out the storage solutions below, and be sure to download the free Mission Friends Nameplate to use in your class.

Classroom Storage Solutions

Preschool teachers use a lot of great “stuff”! How do you organize all that stuff in your classroom? Here are ideas for simple, inexpensive tools to help you get organized.

Tote Caddy: Keep dishes tidy in the Homeliving area. Plastic plates, bowls, and cups fit in the compartments.
Kitchen Turntable: If you cannot see the supplies at the back of the shelf in your supply cabinet, place supplies on a turntable. Spin it around to find those paintbrushes at the back.
Divided Tray: Preschoolers will be able to see the nature items easily. Place a variety of materials in the segments of the tray.
Cutlery Tray: Store art materials that you use often in a cutlery tray. Place the tray in the Art area without having to search in your cabinets for these items each week.
Over-the-Door Shoe Organizer: Use hooks to hang the shoe organizer on the wall or the back of a shelf in the Blocks area. Great for storing cars, trucks, and other block accessories.

Free Mission Friends Nameplate: Download the Mission Friends Nameplate. Print the nameplate on card stock, one for each preschooler. Write a preschooler’s first name in the space. Fold to use as a nameplate.

Cut off the blank side and use the nameplate in these ways:

  • Attach to diaper bags of babies and toddlers.
  • Use as a name tag by taping to the preschooler’s back.
  • Use as a label for cubbies or coat hooks.
  • Decorate a bulletin board in your classroom with nameplates.
