Re: remember all those name

USE THE SEATING CHART!!! I have over 430 students and I could shake their
hand and say good bye the FIRST time I saw them!!! I too have seating
charts which are in a small one inch binder....when the class comes in I
would open it and put it in a convenient place (on a counter or table) I
looked at it even when the students weren't there. In the beginning, I had a
hard time remebering their name at the beginning of school when I saw them in
the hall or out of their seats...but it makes all the difference. Also use
their names as often as you can, look right at them!!!! That is why I
started shaking hands at the end of class...first of all...they love the
personal one on one...and I looked at them and said their names!

You are right...when I did not make this a priority...discipline went out the

Good Luck!!!
