Paper Heading Format?

Just curious, what paper heading format do you ask your students to use? One year I had my students write their first and last name at the very top of the paper on the left side and the date on the very top of the paper on the right side. In the middle of the first line, I had them write the subject/title. This year, I had my students write their first and last name on the top line on the left. Then they write the date on the top line on the right. Finally, they skip a line and write the subject/title in the middle of the line. What works for you and your students?

I have them write their name (first only, unless we have duplicates) on the top right line, with their number above it. The subject goes on the left of the top line, with the date above it. The page/problem numbers go on the next line. They skip a line before starting any work.

I teach my kids to use the heading I learned when I was in school since we have no formal heading guidelines. They put their name in the upper left hand corner, the date in the upper right, the subject under their name, and the assignment under the date. For a few of the kids, as long as they remember just to put their name and date on the paper, that's good enough for me.

I have the use the first two full lines on the paper. On the first line on the left (right next to the red line) I have them write their first and last name. At the end of the first line, they are to put the date. One the second line under their name, they are to put the subject we are working on. Under the date, they are to put the assignment.

I don't have any headings. Even when doing final draft work, at the bottom of the page they just write "by Joey." I just want their name somewhere on the paper. Most kids put it someplace toward the top. We don't use text books or anything that would require a heading to sort and organize.

Subjects each have a journal, so they only need to date the page.

As another poster said, I use the same heading that I used when I was in school. Name in the upper right corner, then date on the next line, and finally subject/ assignment on the third line. Our school tried at one time to do a school wide heading like this. I don't think it "took" though.

I use the same format that you do. I want the students to include their last name because when they get to the upper grades the last name is required. They might as well start now. I also have the students put the current time on their paper. It reinforces the concept of telling time throughout the school year.

I am happy with a name
I do encourage them to put their "magic number" (the number of their mailbox and my number in the grade book). But once I get them memorized I dont care if it is on their paper or not.

third grade students should write their first and last names on all assignments. Why isn't it a requirement by the end of first grade? I also insist that students reply with their first and last names when asked "what's your name?" and when they introduce themselves.

Pride and Organization

Clip to ScrapBook #16

After years of teaching 5th & 6th grades regular and special education, I have an organization that really works for my students and me. From day one, each child is assigned a number from the alphabetized list of last names. Each student's personal number is in the upper right hand corner of EVERY paper and on every notebook. All textbooks and novels are distributed by number. When papers or books are collected, the number helps to make a quick check of whose is missing.
For math, every child sets up the upper right hand corner of 1/4" quadrille 3-hole graph paper with number, first name, date, book (e.g. "Sing. 6A Text" or "AW Purple"). For writing, I always have them use 3/8" divided handwriting paper (1/8" bottom, dotted line, 2/8" top, no skip). In the upper right they are assigned to write their number, name, date, and a title for the assignment. On my many worksheets to save space, I make the name line at the top left, and to the right across the top, the assignment title, a date line, and "#__". It works as long as I give students time to fill in the information. As we show students that identifying their work is important, they take on that responsibility and feel pride. Organizing papers in chronological order becomes easy. For really disorganized children, ID and dating is their saving grace. I hope this helps.
