When we set up our classrooms for a new school year, we think about what new things we can incorporate into our daily routine that will help benefit our students.
Our Pre-K teacher incorporated a sign-in area using Mother Goose Time’s name tags that we get each month with the new curriculum. She laminated them, which allows them to be reused daily! She has a bucket of dry erase markers and erasers for the students to use on the sign-in table, and has them sign-in before circle time. They write their name on the name tag, display it, and meet at the rug for circle time. The repetition of signing in everyday is allowing them some extra practice in writing their name and a fun way of doing it.
A sign-in desk is a great thing to incorporate using Mother Goose Time’s name tags for authentic assessment, and if you laminate them they can practice writing their name over and over again all month long. Having daily routines that are not only fun, but informative is such an amazing tool!
