Lifehacks for Teachers #2 and a Made It Monday!

I'm back for another quick tip to hopefully help you out and make the little things in life a little less tedious!

I don't know about you, but up until I learned this trick a couple years ago, every time I have to take a key off or put a key on my keyring I'd end up hurting my fingertips or at least struggling with it. My wife would break or chip a nail. Now we just keep one of these little staple removers handy in our "junk drawer" and there you go! If you're like me you probably have a couple in your classroom already. Problem solved!

I wanted to share a quick St. Paddy's Day Monday Made It! I saw this adorable leprechaun drawing blog post from Rockin' and Lovin' Learnin' and had to try it with my kids.

I think they came out pretty awesome!
I hope you'll join me tomorrow for our Tunes Tuesday linky party about how to teach science through music!


  1. YES! I have some of those vampire teeth style stapleremovers in my room!!! I just struggled with a key the other day and ended up begging a student to take it off the ring for me. Brilliant! Thanks for the shout out! Your leprechauns turned out awesome!! I'm working on my Tunes Tuesday right now!!

  2. I have the same problem with my keys on my key ring...It's terrible to break a nail! This is a great idea. Thanks for sharing!!
