Clip to ScrapBook #1

Have/do any of you just put student numbers on clips instead of names? I'm thinking of trying it this year....I know I'll have a lot of parent volunteers, and the clip chart is always on display. Having numbers seems to make more sense for the kiddos too because if they have had to clip down, the whole class doesn't see the name displayed. I know eventually they will figure out who is what number, but I doubt it will be to the same degree of knowing names

Clip to ScrapBook #2

That's exactly what I'm going to do in my 4th grade classroom. This is my first year for the clip chart, but not for using numbers. Kids have their numbers on their desks, so they'll know what it is.

The only problem lies when we switch classes. I will have a completely different reading and math class. I think I'll have a dry erase marker by the chart. Those classes can just write their numbers on the chart. I'm hoping that will work.

I think numbers on the clips is better than names, and mainly for the reason you listed. Parents won't know the numbers even if the kids eventually will.

last year in grade 1. I put on initials because I wasn't sure how well the grade 1's could remember their numbers (first time using a number system), but it turned out unnecessary -- they knew their numbers by the end of day 1. So yes, just numbers is fine.

Also, you won't need to buy new clips next year!

I use numbers because: text books, math kits, notebooks etc so much easier for me to put in number order than alphabet.
I do not have to redo ideas each year
Mailboxes, supplies etc are same for each year
Less obvious to put up number than a childs name for recess issues/washroom. homework not done etc
Plus most teachers know that if you ask child to write name on the board it can be painstaking long process.
They use numbers to book in to centers for math /language arts
New students just get the last number
I put class set of numbers to draw for special activities, how many times do you need to choose who will present first, etc. I draw a number (problem solved, not favorites)
