Re: how do you mark the tables?

My table artists names and a poster hang over each table. At the bottom
of each poster there is a number for their table. My drying racks are
built into a row of cabinets on a side wall. There are enough slots in
the drying rack to accomodate 8 pictures per table. I have table
numbers labeled on the drying rack. At the end of the day I just pull
the pictures out of the racks and put them into table folders that have
the kids names and their table numbers on them. I refer to the tables
by artist's names, but the numbers come in handy sometimes too. Kids
already know their number and their artist name. Something else that I
did new this year was to add a small table between each set of two big
art tables. Those small tables are where they keep their table folders
or extra supplies during class so as not to clutter up their work space
too much. Boy do I have some great listeners this year! After the dues
I paid last year with the ADD classes of the century, I am enjoying my
just rewards. I am in shock. They actually LISTEN and FOLLOW
DIRECTIONS already!!! My classes this year are CALM and FOCUSED!!! What
did I do to deserve this????
