One of my biggest problems with my students is when they don't put their name on their paper... I say it about 100 times in 100 different ways before they turn their paper in...
"Remember the first thing you should do is put your name on your paper."
"Don't forget to write your name."
"Third grade, I'm walking around and I see lots of no names."
"My oh my, I have lots of no name orphans in this class."
Anyway, I'm sure you all do the same. And you'll still have papers with NO names on them.
So, instead of pulling out my hair I put some highlighters inside a cup near my in bin. The children are now required to highlight their names before turning their paper in. You can't miss the cup, because it's blocking the in bin. It has a big STOP on it.
The children LOVE to use highlighters, so it's a win-win.
