I have been busy putting names on anything and everything that has to go to school. I was under the impression that after the yochien fiasco, school would be a breeze, how wrong I was!
First off was the maths set....
Inside looks like this...
Every single piece has to have his name on it, even the dice.
A bag of plastic money, I admit I haven't actually put the name on these yet, I haven't figured out how!
I'm not sure what these are used for but trying to put stickers on them was a nightmare, I used little white stickers and trimmed each one to size THEN I discovered that there was a pack of specially designed stickers in the box *duh*
Look how bloody small these things are!
Magnetic triangles all the boxes that the pieces come in need name labels too.
The yellow cubes are white on the other side and magnetic, I'm not sure how these are used either but the kind of remind me of the bead material in Montessori.
Plastic stick things that fix together, I am sure maths wasn't this complicated when I was a kid.
The bag of charts and sheets (and the handy stickers I needed earlier!) Most of these are double sided and have games and puzzles printed on them.
Plastic pocket for worksheets I think, cutting board, pencil case - must be one of those flip top ones, red and blue pencil, eraser - must be white, glue and a plastic sheet to put under your paper when you are writing.
Oil pastels, pens and crayons and yes, each one must have his name on it! I am now wondering if I should have put names on his pen lids too?
and finally the metal tray from the maths set, wood clay, scissors and 4B pencils. *phew*
BUT alas, I have not finished, I have bags to make, all to specific sizes and all his clothes to label - I will save that for another post, wait until you see the garb he has to wear for lunch!
