Re: Who has creative ideas for how to label table groups?
- Not sure what grade level you teach but my middle schoolers have an "art box" with materials in the middle of their table group (4 students per table). The lid of the art box has a table group # and each of the four corners has a colored dot label (red, yellow, blue, green) that way I can assign jobs to each member ie: reds will get water, blues newspapers, yellows paper towels, greens paper. In addition each dot has a number that corresponds to certain materials which are also labeled (student #6 gets water color set #6). Its just more organized that way and the kids are accountable for their materials, setting up, and cleaning up. Hope this helps.

> I label my tables as colors. I organize by the colors with folders of portfolios, kids do jobs, line up, get praise for being on task (I love how the blue table is really focused today!). Primaries on one side with secondaries on the other. A few times a year I change seats, I assign on colored paper and the kids know their new table. It helps subs with names and me too in the fall. I find tons of ways to incorporate color theory during line up once the kids know the table names; its great for review. ALi NNY k-4
