Teaching Tip Tuesday: Color Code Your Classroom Games!
Tuesday, October 23, 2012
Color Code or Number all of your classroom games! Before bagging game pieces, put colored-dots on each piece in a set (pink dot set, blue dot set, green dot set, etc). Or, if you don't have access to enough colors for all of the games in a set, you could number the backs of each game piece (game #1, game #2, game #3, etc). Just be sure to number all cards, game boards, and the baggie that holds them. Now, when pieces are left out, it takes just a second for the students to return them to the correct place! Labeling all of the game pieces is a great job for a volunteer and it will pay off BIG TIME for you in the long run!
If only I had used this system from the start of my teaching career! #hindsightis20/20
