Nurse Notes (printable)

July 2, 2012
Happy Monday everyone! And it is happy, isn’t it? It’s lovely to be at home in the summertime and, thanks to Ms. Tara, we have an awesome linky party to join each Monday!
So, I’m still working away at some signs to amp up my old color scheme for this new school year, as well as to get things a little more organized.
Today I focused on a little management piece I’ve used in the past, which has really helped me save time: premade notes to the nurse, to fill out quickly when one of my students isn’t feeling well.
They aren’t anything major…they just have a space for the student’s name, class name, and a blank space for the reason why the student is being sent:
(I’m sometimes long-winded in my notes, so I tried to make that space pretty large!)
I used to keep these notes in a plastic sleeve I made, but it’s kind of worn out at this point. So I decided to keep them (along with a pen because I can NEVER seem to find one when I need it!) in one of my bright baskets. (I must confess, I had a terrible urge to buy a new little basket, specifically for this purpose–but I am resisting!!) I have sworn to not buy any more plastic storage. We’ll see if I can stick with this resolution! I’m guessing no…haha!
Anyhow, if you would like to use any part of this file, please click on the preview below…

Thanks for stopping by!! 🙂

    Cuteness!! I love it and I know our school nurse would appreciate these. Your ideas always make me happy 🙂 🙂

    Lol, I thought of you the other day bc I went into the Dollar Store (1st mistake), went back to the plastic bins (2nd mistake) and say navy blue bins (love!), then proceeded to buy all 11 😉

    Thankfully, they have found a use in my room (sort of), but they were not even close to a necessary purchase!! Bin-a-holics Anonymous may be in our future 😉

    Happy Monday 🙂

    Love them…I'm re-doing a lot of things in my room with your flipped labels and this is perfect 🙂

    These are adorable!
    And my goal is to buy more fun baskets because I have too many plain-old-plastic-see-through tubs. BORING!

    Super cute!!! We have to fill out all this paper work for the nurses slip!! Ugh! I hate it! I like your way better! 🙂

  • Heather Temske July 2, 2012 at 11:04 pm

    that is a great idea. Of course as usual you've made it super cute.

  • Selena July 3, 2012 at 12:13 am

    Love these!! So generous of you to share, and I really appreciate it!

    Happy 4th to you!

    Great idea!! Thank you for sharing.

  • Courtney Bartlett July 3, 2012 at 1:04 am

    I love this idea! We don't have a nurse but our secretary kinda does that too and we are supposed to write her notes about what the problem is. I usually forget so this will keep me in her good graces. Thanks Kristen!

    Oh.. I love these – so adorable. I wish we didn't have to use the ones they force us to use at work 🙁
    Cute, as always!

    Yay! A good reason to visit the Dollar Tree tomorrow, lol! These are so cute! And I don't think there are many teachers out there that don't have a "plastic" problem, 🙂
    Thanks again!

    Very cute! I need to do something like this. We used to have a pass system at my old school, but the new school…not so much.

    Super cute! Love the label for the basket and even though we too have ugly district provided slips (though we think our Health Clerk might appreciate these cuties, for sure), we love the idea of having them at our fingertips…with a pen! We too have a basket buying problem, but are not do not have as strong of will power as you. Stay strong…:)

    Cute ideas! I also wish I could use it, but we must use district duplicate version although it does make it easy to check off their various ailments. We have to fill out student name, number, teacher name, date, time left and then we have a selection of common ailments we can check off or select other and we can write note. The bottom is reserved for school nurse to write her notes. I also have a little plastic container for bandaids, gloves, hand sanitizer, pen and clinic passes. This is well used in my classroom as I leave it for a sub and I take it with me at recess or field trips. Thanks for sharing!

    Love your site! 🙂 Love this idea…I made my own notes on Vista Print and the hardest part was remembering to use them, lol. It was so nice to just write.."Temperature" rather than call down, interrupt the secretary/nurse, talk to her and then get back to my patiently waiting class ;)…these were great most of the time and perfect for the info needed.

    PERFECT!! I, too, can never find a pen—great idea of keeping it IN the basket!!! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

Our spring break is starting this weekend and I know I’m going to come back to a whirlwind of permission slips, forms, and project papers to keep up with!So I’ll be using these magnets to keep all of our due dates posted (and to save myself from the endless questions of when things are due!).

    • My heart could just burst with happiness today. We’ve worked so hard as a community of readers this year to read as much as possible, in all the extra minutes we can find in our day.Today was our fourth grade Water Fair. The students had to present their projects in front of judges and wait patiently for the semifinals and then results...for several hours.It was a long morning for them.But I watched as so many happily pulled out their current reads while they waited, thrilled for all of the bonus reading time. ❤️❤️❤️ #fullheart #communityofreaders #readersgonnaread #iteachfourth #iteach4th #iteach456 #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram
    • Giveaway Closed...congrats @ccbahr!I just listed a new resource that has really made a difference in our class.I’m sure I’m not alone in this...our list of due dates is HUGE right now!! So I’ve been keeping track of all our forms and assignments with these little magnets. They have been SO helpful for my students...and me, honestly (I can lose track of things so easily these days!). Would you like to win a set for your class? You can earn two entries by doing the following:1. Comment with an emoji that shows your feelings about due dates right now.2. Comment again and tag a friend for a second entry.I’ll announce the winning name later this evening!

    • Magnet love!! 🧲❤️ I’ve been using these due date magnets to help organize our important papers and keep those deadlines posted for my students and (let’s be honest) me as well!Because this is the time of the year when so much is going on, so much is due...it becomes very easy for a teacher to get overwhelmed with projects, permission slips, order forms, and more!So now I post our papers, write the due date with a vis-a-vis marker and there it is...an easy-to-see visual reminder that keeps my class and I on track.I’ll share more from this board soon...we have some other resources that are keeping my fourth grade class a little more organized during this busy season!How do you like to keep track of due dates in your class?#classroomorganization #classroommanagement #iteachfourth #iteach4th #iteach456 #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram
    • My mind has been a jumble of thoughts this Sunday night, so I'm turning to google slides to help plan things out.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀This week, for example, we need to work on a couple of our routines that have become less...routine. 😬⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀This slide will give us a chance to have a chat and share strategies on keeping a clean workspace. Plus, it has visuals of how our tables should look, which is always a huge help!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Have you tried this with your class before? I think it will be a great reminder for my students this week!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#classroommanagement #classroomorganization #iteachfourth #iteach456 #iteach4th #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram
    • I may have experienced a momentary feeling of dread when I saw Monday’s date as I left yesterday. 😂⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀But...I absolutely ADORE these magnetic numbers. I learned about this awesome time-saver from @twoteachersinfifth (Brooke and Leah always have the best ideas!!).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀And seriously...this is the first time in my seventeen years of teaching I haven’t routinely forgotten to put the date on the board. It’s a student job to keep it updated...but even if my fourth graders occasionally forget, it just takes a moment for me to do.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I keep the numbers in a little photo storage box by the front whiteboard. The magnetic numbers are by Teacher Created and can be found on Amazon. (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ZVQUS0K/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_i0-NCb0HNXCA8)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I love how easy these numbers are to see from anywhere in our room...and of course the time they save!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#teachertimesaver #classroommanagement #classroomorganization #iteachfourth #iteach4th #iteach456 #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram
