Teachers, this is a good way to keep track of what each child has brought into your classroom. In my first year of teaching I had a dad claim he brought in a miniature blue angel from the first day his child was born (along with 2 other items). I never saw that blue angel. (He was mad) Anyways from that day on I made the parents physically write the items their child brought into our classroom and initial.
At the end of the day (before parents started showing up) I made sure the items they signed for were in their cubbies.
