Here's my trick for organizing. I put all the kids into the class into a
"directory" Basically it's an alphabetized list by first name (I can't
remember last names as easy) Anyone coming after the first day gets added to
the end. Directory lists are posted so people can remember their numbers.

Then when I want folksies to do something I throw in a little math. "I want
the person with lowest odd number at each table to come get...." OR "The
person with the highest number at each table needs to get the ...." So on and
so forth. When I taught elementary school, the kids LOVED having their own
number - textbooks matched the number, cubbies matched the number, and lo and
behold, some months they even had a school day with "Their number!"
