Clip to ScrapBook #6

We do not have a meet and greet night prior to the first day I put their name on a brown paper grocery bag and have them dump all supplies in. Many students come without their supplies labeled and because I am collecting supplies alone and amidst all the chaos of entering room on 1st day, I have found this to be the most effiecent. After students leave, I go through each paper bag and label everything with sharpie and then place all like items (ie, all glue sticks go together, etc) into one labeled paper bag. My students are highly mobile so when someone transfers all I have to do is go to the bag holding all of the crayons and find the box with their name on it. We have a generic supply list and I do not use everything they bring, so this makes it easy for me to later on in the year send home with the proper student. Like a lot of teachers, I have preference on what supplies I like to use and end up not using many of the items.
