Notes to the Nurse

January 10, 2011
This is something I had actually planned on doing a long time ago, but lost track of time. While updating some of my files this weekend, I happened upon my Notes to the Nurse again and decided to put my idea into action.

This is in effort to save myself the precious time of racing to my desk to grab a pen and scrap of paper to write a note to the nurse. I plan on hanging this small sign right by my classroom door, with a pen attached, so I can just jot a note and send my student on his/her way.

I’m actually printing this out as I make this post and taking a few pics of how I’m going to put the whole thing together.

First, I cut and glued the sign onto some black paper. Then, I ran the entire sign through the laminator.

To make a pocket for the notes, I folded the bottom of the sign.

Then I stapled the edges, to hold the pocket in place. I stapled close to the edge of the black paper, to make the pocket stand out so…
…it is wide enough to hold the notes and a pen. This should save a lot of time for those never-ending trips to the nurse!

(Sorry for the blurry picture…I’m having a disastrous tech day…I’m lucky I managed this post!!)

Please see below for the link to this file…I hope you will be able to use it as well.

    • Do you have magnetic whiteboards in your class?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I LOVE mine...I only wish all of my walls could be filled with magnetic whiteboards! 😂 This year, I started using a little magnetic tool to save lots of time...and to avoid repeating information over and over.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I made these little due date magnets and they help in two ways. They hold extra assignments, forms, and work samples.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀And...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀They display the due date! Swipe to see some pics from our class. These little magnets kept me MUCH more organized this year...and they kept my fourth graders in the know!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀They are the perfect (easy) summer project for a rainy day...that’s actually what I’m doing today! 🌧 If you would like to see more, the link to this resource is in my profile (http://bit.ly/duedatemagnets)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#classroomorganization #classroommanagement #iteachfourth #iteach4th #iteach456 #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram
