Do you ever want to rip your hair out dismissing your kids to line up?
This product is to help you dismiss your kids to line up in a calm and organized manner. After teaching Kindergarten for several years, you learn classroom management tricks through trial and error. I found that it was challenging telling 30 (or more) five year olds to line up at the door without running, pushing, and sprinting to get there first.
Then I discovered if I dismissed them in small groups, the whole process went a lot smoother.
Here is where Line Up Buddies come in:
Pick a stick and fill in the blank with different answers.
The students get to line up if what you say applies to them.
One stick says: If your favorite color is ________.
You will then say different colors and the students get to line up when you say their favorite color. Once there are about 4 left sitting, I just dismiss the rest of them to line up.
I hope you can add these to your classroom management routine!
