Hi friends, it's Kristen from Easy Teaching Tools and I'd love to share with you some ways I
try to stay organized in my class. I've shared a few of these ideas on my Instagram page and received awesome feedback that I'd love to share with you!
I have very high ceilings this year so I can't hang table point signs from the ceiling. This year, I bought table card holders (like you see at weddings) and made cute table point signs. Yes, I have 5 tables that are vowels! When kiddos are being awesome, they get a table point. Super easy because they know to come grab a clothespin and clip it. It's also a great visual if kiddos are being too chatty and you need to take a point away. I've found this system is so much more powerful than tallying table points on the whiteboard. Try it and let me know how much you love it!
Sit Spots are THE best because they give kiddos personal space and there is no more friends sitting in the wrong spot. Since I don't have carpet this year, I'm using my sit spots in sitting areas like this one, our listening center. I don't want to hear kiddos argue about where they sit, so I plop these down and have eliminated a potential problem. Time saver and super cute!
