Do you have your table caddies labeled with visual supports, but glue is still missing from them throughout the day? Or all the pencils amazingly end up in one caddy.
I understand because this was happening in my classroom, too. So I started thinking of a better way to help my students put things where they were supposed to go. In 2014, I had an idea to add numbers as a visual reminder to help my students know how many school supplies should be in each section of their caddy. This simple solution was a game-changer in helping my students stay organized and prepared throughout the day.

Not only do these labels teach organizational skills, they also teach:
- Following Directions
- How to Read
- Math Concepts (sorting, 1-1 correspondence, colors, etc.)
These are a few of my favorite table caddies that can be found on Amazon.
These caddy labels have been updated and are now EDITABLE in powerpoint! That means you can:
- Use your own fonts.
- Update the number count to meet your classroom needs.
- Change the language of the labels.
