I hope that so many of you, like me, are enjoying your summer and taking time for yourself to recharge your batteries, get fresh ideas and plan for the upcoming school year! For those of you still in school, I will be jealous of your August summer photos while I'm already back in school.
Teaching K is very exhausting in the beginning of the school year because students are scared, timid and don't always know the answer to the question you are asking. If nothing else goes right during the first few days of school, I hope, pray and often panic that the wee littles will get home to their parents.
To help, I created this small chart that hangs in my classroom all year. Each student gets a clothes pin with their name on it and then clipped to the correct column. For students that ride the bus or go to day care, I put either the bus number or abbreviate the day care so that I know and its great for subs, my assistant and anyone else that is helping with dismissal that normally does not. In the first few days of school, I clip these to the students shirts or backpacks and as they get on each bus, daycare stop or with their parents, I take them back to be ready for the next day!
