I first caught a glimpse of this idea for keeping informed of which students are in and out in the bathroom from Elizabeth in Fun in Room 4B. With a few cheap plastic plates from my favorite place on earth (yes, that would be Target), some velcro and an expo, we were in business!
Once students are given the go ahead via the use of one of our pictured symbols (found here and translated to meet my needs with a lil' label and sharpie magic), they must head over to the door to sign out on one of our plates.
The students must then erase their name upon returning to class so that it's ready to go for the next student, and so that I know they have safely returned to the room.
Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy.
Happy Monday and have a great week!
