Here's another peek into how my classroom works!
This year I have a whopping 27 kindergarteners! I've never had problems getting kids in line, but this year there were just so many that they were winding around and around the classroom. I've seen the idea around where teachers put numbers on the floor to help kids find their spot, but I was hesitant to try it because I have both carpet and tile where students line up. This summer, I purchased these calendar numbers (because rainbow) and got them ready for the floor.
They have to wind around the tables and chairs, but it works! I spaced them about 10" apart.
Adding the number spots on the floor has definitely sped up our line up process. I can have kids line up all at once and more quickly because they know exactly where to stand.
Another trick that I use is that I put painters tape in the hallway where I want them to stop. Since the line is so long, I have trouble watching kids as they come out of the classroom and also be there to tell them where to stop. It has only been 13 days of school, so we're still getting the hang of things, but the tape definitely helps!
That's it for today! I hope that was helpful for you! See you next time!
