I have the students writ their name & rm. no. on a name tag as below. Then they attach it to one side of their folder (12"x18") oaktag. i have color coded tables. Red,or, ect. and their tables folders go in their color folded paper. These are on the table all year and I can refer to them as I go around the room.Good for subs too. Table colors are marked by 3-D shapes that the 4th grade constructs at the beginning of the year. that project they look forward to when they become 4th graders. It is a good starter project because it reviews 3-D shapes, line. pattern, and color families. They hang from a string from a lamp shade metal circle that I have covered with yarn of that color table. Then the circle hangs from 3 strings from the ceiling.
Anyone have another idea for labeling tables? I am stuck on this one because I use the table colors as a reference during many lessons.
> Hi Fran,
> I actually have the name tags that are folded paper that stand up like a tent. Just a 8 1/2 x 11 cut in half and then folded. I write my kinders names and have 1-5 write their own on the first day of class. I color code them for each class, just in case one gets misplaced. I quickly throw out the tags before each class and have my Master Artist pick them up at the end of class.
> It may seem like a little extra work, but I always know who is missing from the tags and kids are constantly moving which helps prevent discipline issues in groups and provides opportunities to learn with new people every class period. But the best thing about it is that I am constantly looking at their name tags and matching it to their faces.
> Oh, I also give out a prize at on the last class for the name tag that was the best taken care of throughout the year. It was amazing how many kids kept them nice all year.
