Love the idea of putting them upside down!

Of course that makes sense!!

As far as the color coding. I bought sticker dots from Smilemakers.com They are six color dots with the word written on them. I put them in the corner of their desk. Equal numbers of greens, blues, yellows, reds, oranges, and purples. I used the dots to call them for things too. What I found out was that the same kids were grouped together all the time.

This year I am going to put a few stickers on the corners of their tags. Examples: the dots for color groups, different animals, hearts, flowers, smiley faces...etc.

This way I can say, "If you have a red smiley face on your desk, please line up!" Or "Everyone with a dog sticker on their desk meet at the cubbies.."


As far as the original post. I teach 3rd. I start out with print and after Christmas break, I make new ones with cursive. I only put their first name and class number. If there are two of the same names, then I put the last initial.

Two years ago I had two Alexes and they both had last names that started with S!!
