It's getting better, but still sloooow. We pack up about 50 minutes before dismissal. Otherwise, my SS/Sc block would get eaten up. They pack then we have the last block, then we leave. The kids fill out their homework in their agendas, (I write it on the board) then they write how many tallies they pulled. I quickly walk around and check it's correct and jot any notes I need to in their agendas. I don't want to stop initialing their agendas daily because I expect their parents to do the same. How can I expect them to do it if I'm not? This takes about 15 minutes, 10 on a great day. The only thing I can think of the streamline things to have them leave out their agendas before lunch. That way they're ready just after writing, when it's time to pack up. Other ideas?
