My first homework assignment is this name tag for their cubbies. I send home a 5 x 7 index card and ask that the children find the letters of their name in magazines and create their name. I put them on construction paper and laminate!
Here is another one -so cute!!
Here is peek at the cubbies and those name tags.
I put up our Letter Posters. And check out the frames above the posters. I put each child above their cubby. It looks so endearing! So guess where I found those cool frames?
IKEA!! Just $1 per frame (two in a package). Oh how I adore IKEA!
In honor of my sick daughter (who adores movies) - I used a "movie" theme. I took photos of each child in black and white. (Don't you just love the look of black & white? So cool.)
I put each photo on black construction paper and used a gold paint pen to write their name and make a quick dot or slash border.
I have a chart paper with everyone's name on my front white board. It is our "reference" sheet for names.
This idea comes from Mrs. Flynn (who is so efficient - love it!) - these are little name tags with magnets. It is at the top of my white board and tells the children where they sit. I changed the seating for two children. They knew because they had looked! Yay!
These are my attendance/lunch tags (with a magnet). The children move their name to the lunch board in the morning arrival. The names remaining let me know who is absent.
Each child makes a birthday poster the first week of school. I put them in order of dates and hang. This is a great reminder of the next birthday.
Another thing I do that is not pictured:
- Every child has a name tent at their table.
- The first class book I make is a "Friend, friend, who do you see?" with a photo of each child and their name.
- The second class book is baby photos of the children (I type "I see Ethan." or whoever the baby is).
- The next class book is of family photos.
