When I first started teaching Kindergarten I was not prepared to have the majority of students enter my classroom without being able to recognize or write their own name. This was quite a struggle the first couple of months of my teaching career when I had labeled each student’s cubby, desk, book box, and supplies with their name and no one was able to tell which things belonged to them without help from an adult!
One of the most time saving beginning of Kindergarten tips I ever received was to label each student’s belongings with their name along with an image. This tip has saved me year after year in Kindergarten. My students are able to identify their own belongings quickly without much adult assistance and learn to recognize their names at the same time! It’s a win for the teacher and a win for the student!
Now each year at the start of Kindergarten I label each student’s cubby, desk, book box, lunch choice/attendance stick, name tag, folders, notebooks, and carpet spots with their name and corresponding image. This pack provides you will all of the labels you need to implement this system in your classroom!
The labels and students pages included in this pack are FULLY EDITABLE! Simply fill in your student names (up to 32) in the class list on page 5. All student names that you type into the class list will automatically be filled into the corresponding labels and practice pages to save time!
