Name please

How do you get your kiddos to remember to write their name? Well, I just recently saw this amazing little trick while blog hopping. I really wish I could remember who posted it. Are you ready for the trick? Get about 4 different colored highlighters and place them near your turn in tray. Before they turn their work in they have to highlight their name. If there is no name to highlight then they remember to write their name. This works guys!

Name Reminder
I also sing. I sing a lot in kindergarten. Try this. “Name on top please (clap) first thing!”

I sing a lot too. The name song in our classroom is to the tune of "If You're Happy and You Know It." Put your name on the top... on the top. (clap clap) Put your name on the top... on the top. (clap clap)
Put your name on the top. Put your name on the top. Put your name on the top... on the top. Even my third grade kiddos love singing it!

I have been struggling with the name issue as well. This is a great idea! I will definitely be doing this next year! I think my firsties will enjoy using the highlighters, too!

I still struggle with the name thing. Great idea. I just shared this freebie with everyone over at 3-6 Free Resources.
