I am beginning a weekly series called...
" Nibits for Newbies"
( NO, NOT New BABIES!)
New to Grade Level.
New to a School.
NOT a New Teacher...Just Like to Learn NEW things!
This is for YOU!
Before passing out ANYTHING,
make a class name chart.
First names only in alphabetical order.
Assign EACH student a number , try to stay in sequential order.
(I know, "AMY" moves & "Xavier" takes her number.)
Oh well! There is no PERFECT!
When passing out class sets of ANYTHING,
Books, notebooks, journals, glue sticks, crayon packs...
Write a number on each item.
When you pass them out.. count!
When YOU collect class sets of anything...collect items from the LAST number first.
( All items will have number 1 on top & last number on the bottom! )
When we finish a theme book & I need to exchange for a different one...COUNT!
Trade the theme 1 book for a theme 2 book!
Again ...Count from largest to smallest..1 will always be on top!
I found a glue stick LID on the floor!
WHO does is belong to?
It belongs to number_____!
(Make sure you number the glue stick & the lid..they always seperate!)
So I hope this helps you when getting supplies ready for the beginning of school!
Leave me a comment...How do YOU account for classroom supplies?
