Solution to "No Name" Papers?
One of the teacher pages I follow on facebook had a discussion about "no name" papers. Typically I can figure out whose paper doesn't have a name on it through observing the handwriting. However, I like for student to make a habit of putting names on their papers at an early age to prevent problems in upper grades (such as reduced grades as some teacher stated they do). So, I LOVED one idea a teacher shared. She said that each day she assigned a shape for the students to put at the end of their name and they could doodle something from the shape. For example, she may assign a triangle and some kids may doodle an ice cream cone or a girl in a dress. She said she never had an issue with no name papers after this because the kids looked forward to doodling a picture after their name. I thought this was such a cute idea. I will be trying this for sure!!
"Teachers make great thieves"...ever heard that quote? It is a very true! Most of our great ideas are "stolen" from someone else. Not all ideas on this blog are mine. I try to give credit where credit is due. However, if you find that an idea should have been given credit but wasn't, please let me know.
