I used the highlighter system last year and it worked well for my 5th grade class (it was a big class and there were a lot of forgotten names each day). I laminated the poster to the right and hung it on the wall. I velcroed two highlighters, one on each side of the poster. It worked like a charm for that class.
My ELL class this year is a bit smaller and more mindful of name-writing. So I adapted the sign (might as well save my highlighters!)…so just a reminder to put names on papers before turning them into the baskets. I think this works out well if you have a fairly responsible class. If I had many forgotten names, I would definitely go back to the highlighter method. The two different forms are below:
I’m sure many of you have seen this or used this, but I just wanted to share it in case it was new to some. Have a nice evening–I hope you aren’t one of those many states about to be hit with snow…unless you want a snow day…which I do…on Wednesday yay!!! 🙂
