Welcome to another round of Bright Ideas!
I love that we are able to share all of these fabulous ideas with teachers all over the world.
Today I wanted to share with you a quick way to let everyone know where your class is. You know those times you decide that learning doesn't only have to take place in the classroom and that you are going to be daring and take your class outside or to another area of the school? Of course that is going to be the time a parent or the Principal comes looking for you and then you end up getting a slap on the wrist (I speak figuratively) because no-one knows where you are. Did this happen to me? Of course not!
There are a number of ways you can let people know where you are, you can display your timetable in your room so it is plain to see when you have you specialist lessons like Music or PE, you can leave a note on your whiteboard if you are going to be somewhere else. But this is my favourite way to let people know where you are.
Use your windows or glass door as a whiteboard, I made this cute background, laminated it and stuck it on the the inside of my glass door, I can then write on the glass with a whiteboard marker to let everyone know where we are. If you have a solid door, you can still write on the laminate or slide a piece of paper into a page protector and write on the plastic with a whiteboard marker.
I can't believe how easy it is and why I didn't think of this before, you can see in an instant where our class is and I will never get in trouble again for not telling people where we are :)
