Finding JOY in Grade: Classroom Management: The Purple Clipboard. I wonder if this would be hard to maintain accurately all day, might work better in a middle/high school setting for periods than all day elem management. Like this idea.
Divide the inside of a file folder into boxes that are slightly larger than small sticky notes. Write students' names in the boxes in alphabetical order, one name per box, jot the information on a sticky note and then place it in the appropriate box.
