Hello. My name is...


Hello.  My name is...

Mrs. Cooley!  And... I can't wait to find out the names of my new students for next year!  I love labeling and getting things ready for my new little ones, and I am super excited about using these swirly chalkboard name tags to help me remember names those first few days! After laminating, I usually hole punch the top of my name tags to make them into necklaces. I take them up at the end of the day, and pass them out again the next day, until I get those names down!

{Teacher friends, you can grab your name tags for free by clicking the picture above.}

I always use a small pocket chart to keep my nametag necklaces in, and then it does double duty. In the morning, the kids grab their name, which makes taking attendance a snap. The tags that are left get read off quickly (in case someone just forgot) and those are the names I mark absent. It obviously helps with name recognition for those who need it, besides helping me learn their names quickly. Also, I have my babies wear their nametags when they go to prep to help out those teachers. It's nearly impossible for the gym/art/library teacher to learn the name of every single child in the school, so they definitely appreciate it.

Love the necklace and pocket chart idea! It's nice to have them to hold over for following days as I don't always get their names on the first day. Thanks again!

What a great idea. I love the beginning of the school year too! I work in a village in Alaska so during the summer I leave the village, but I'm looking forward to getting back up there and being able to organize and set up my classroom. I guess that's just part of being a teacher! We just love the beginning of the school year!!
