I have never taught pre-k before, so I don't know what to expect. But I have a question regarding labeling student names in the classroom. In Kindergarten, I just used names on cubbies, seats, etc. But the aide in my new pre-k room wants to use colored shapes for everything. Like little Johnny would be the blue square so I would label his cubbie and chair and spot on the carpet and attendance pocket thing with a blue square. But that just seems like a LOT of work and coordination! Not just that, but I think it keeps them from just recognizing their name instead. Please tell me if my expectations are too high and if so, do you have any other ideas on how to label my room to make it easier for the kids to locate their stuff other than the shapes? Thanks!
