Anecdotal Notes: Write your notes on the address labels as you walk around and observe. Later, stick them onto the child's index card. Quick and easy! Then, during parent/teacher conferences, just pull out the notecard and share your observations. I would like to use name tag size :)
"As soon as the kids walk in, this is what they see - it's our main "drop zone". They stop and turn their homework in, submit any notes from home, choose their lunch for the day, and turn in their library books. It's a one-stop-shop. It is so helpful that it's right inside the door, because the kids don't have the chance to miss it!"
I would LOVE a set of these!! "Now when I set out a station, I simply review the task with the kids. We decided on what the simple instructions for the task should be. I quickly flip these little babies over and record the directions. Then if the students get to the station, but forget the task, they can press the button and hear them again."
pretty cool! they record directions for students to listen to as a reminder at stations!
