This is a quick tip one of my colleagues shared with me that I want to pass along. My kids have name tags that they wear whenever they go to essential classes (art, gym, music, and library), and whenever we have a substitute teacher. I used to keep these tags in a basket, and we wasted a lot of time passing them out and recollecting them.
Now, I have my kids just clip their name tags to their table tags! They don’t need to wear them all the time – only when they are with other teachers that don’t know them as well as I do. I can just tell them to get their name tags on, and they are completely independent. No need to wait! On a side note, the alligator clip tags are great for fine motor practice!
What quick tips do you have to save a few minutes here and there? I am always looking for more!
