Having a morning sign-in and evening sign-out attendance routine is a great name recognition activity-kids just LOVE finding their names!
Place a Who is here Today? sign-in mat, and a Who is at home? sign-out mat in your welcome Area, or in a binder. As the children arrive in the morning they find their name on the "Who is at home?" mat and move their names to the "Who is here today?" mat (attach with Velcro). Likewise, in the evening, when they are ready to go home, they move their names again.
Seek and find activities are fun for kids of ages and full of learning opportunities!
Setup the checklist and poster for independent exploration, or create a fall scavenger hunt in your classroom by hiding the image cards for students to find, or use the checklist while out on a fall walk, or hide the image cards in a sensory table for discovery!
