I can do it – pack my bag for school

Primary Teacher Update awardDo you want an organised child who can pack their own school bag, be responsible for knowing what they need to take to school and remember to bring it all home again?

Help them to say  “I CAN DO IT!” with the original, award-winning TomTag toolkit – the cool tool that helps kids pack their bag for school.

With my TomTag personalised packing checklist I know exactly what I need to take to school each day without needing to ask for help.
TomTag’s picture symbols help me remember all my school and out-of-school items and activities. There’s no reason for me to get upset or worried now because I know I won’t forget what I need.

It’s my job to know what I have to take to school and bring home again and I can check TomTag every day to make sure. Using a different coloured tag for each day of the week helps me find the right list quickly.

I can see what I need to remember because TomTag uses colourful and fun illustrations and I don’t need to be able to read to understand them.

I carry my list with me on my school bag so I can always check for myself what I need when I’m at home or at school or anywhere else.

All TomTag stickers are water-resistant so there’s no need to worry about them getting damaged in the rain. Every pack comes with a small number of blank stickers for you to add your own personalisation if needed.

stick it on a buttonSTICK each sticker onto a blank button. Involving the child with this process (most of them love stickers after all!) will help to engage them in using TomTag.

Let the child decide which coloured tag they want to use for each day of the week then label each tag in the rectangular slot at the bottom using the days of the week stickers included in the pack.

click it in a tagCLICK each button into an empty space of the chosen tag. There are 6 different coloured tags in this set – one for each school day and one to list items that are needed daily.

TomTag’s unique click-in buttons stay securely in place when in use but can be easily removed, repositioned and reused to modify the checklists when timetables or routines change.

tomtag ready to goREADY to go. With TomTag, there’s no printing, laminating or Velcro which saves you time AND money.  It’s simply less fuss and more fun!

Link all the tags together and fasten them to your child’s school bag with the attachment loop provided. The ridges on the back of each tag enable them to stack neatly together to reduce movement when carried or if the child prefers to have the tags more discretely inside their school bag.
