It's the first day of school and parents are anxiously awaiting outside your room. Your inside panicking checking to make sure everything is just so. Oh no!!! name tags, where are they? How will I go about passing these out? Problem solved. Place a pocket chart outside your classroom with a note to the parent asking them to please put their child's name tag on them. As students enter you will be able to talk to them and call them by their name. This will help them feel comfortable. Many times they are too shy on the first day of school to tell you their name. This gives the parents something to do while they wait and it gives you one less thing you need to do as the children enter.
