I know there have been several threads on this and I think I even started one last year. I even looked back at the old threads but I am so sick of telling my students over and over and over and all day long to put names on PAPERS!!!!! -I've tried visuals on my white board. -Told over and over and over and over all day long. -I made students do work over again and this worked but then when it was my low students who needed the extra practice but they would never get done. It would take them forever to even finish the first sheet with no name. -Taken away team points even if one person from a table did not have their name. I thought this would help groups work together to put names on papers without me asking. It worked. -Ive thrown papers away. What else can I try? I have read that students need to make sure they highlight their name but I don't know how well this would work with first graders. Especially when I have them turin in their papers all at once. Will I be doomed for saying "make sure your name is on your paper"more than 50 times a day for the rest of my career??!!!! I want a good system to have when school starts so I can nip it in the bud in the first 9 weeks.
