    In past years when it is time to go home, I have had my children all sit down at the carpet and then I went to the door of the classroom (where the parents were waiting to pick up their children) and then I would dismiss them one at a time when I saw their parent/guardian there. That way I was sure each child went home with the right family and no one just ran out the door without anyone there for them.
    Well this year I have a much larger class, 17 preschoolers and maybe growing and I was wondering if you would share the method that you have used to dismiss your students? Not sure mine is the best method and would like to hear other ideas.

    I have 16 students and I dismiss the same way as you. Although I have an assistant. We take turns, one at the door dismissing and one on the carpet with the kids. Do you have an assistant?

    We also dismiss as Eduk8 Me (teacher handling sign-out and assistant with the children on rug).

    I have 16 preschoolers and we dismiss in the same manner. I have a teacher on the rug with toys (manipulatives, ect.) and I am at the door to greet parents and call the students.

    I dismiss in the same way - my assistant sits on the floor with the children in a circle while I call out names one by one when I see parents.
