Bright Ideas Link Up-Neat and Tidy Supply Tubs

Hello!  Welcome to another Bright Ideas Link Up.  This is one of our favorite times of the month.  We both love reading all the Bright Ideas and getting to share  a small tip that works or us. 
This month's tip is another simple one!  We keep supply tubs on our kiddo's desks.  This year we each have 16 kiddos and our desks are set up in groups of 4.  In the middle of each group is a tub.  This is what is in each tub.  
Our Bright Idea fixes a problem that always happens.  We start off the year with tubs neat and organized and within a day or two our tubs are a mess!  Things are in the wrong spot and when the kiddos try to fix them they end up making an even bigger mess.  So we decided to take a picture of each of the tubs while it was organized and hang that picture on each tub.  We printed the above picture and tied it with ribbon on each of the tubs. That way the kiddos can always refer to the picture when organizing their tubs! Voila!  Easy for us and easy for them.

Bright Ideas Link Up-Student Information Cards




 We have a quick and easy Bright Idea for you this month.  For years we received the enrollment forms that parents filled out at enrollment.  They had tons of great information, but it was all in different spots on the form and we always had to hunt for phone numbers, parent names, etc.  Then our district switched to having student information online.  This sounded great to us until we realized that every time we wanted to look up a phone number for a kiddo we would have to log in to the system.  
This did not work at all for us when we were trying to make a quick call during our lunch break or to let a kiddo call about a forgotten lunch at the beginning of the day.  
So we decided to create our own parent information card!  At our Parent Information Night (this is usually within the first 2 weeks of school) we have parents fill out this card.


 Then we add a hole punch in the top corner and put them all on a ring.  These are hung on our teacher bulletin board right next to the phone and computer.  This has made our lives soooooo much easier!

Bright Ideas Link Up-Supply Notes

   This month we have a very simple Bright Idea for you!  In our corner of the world 2nd graders run out of supplies constantly.  We are never sure if they have actually used them, lost them on the playground, given them all away to a friend, or eaten them! :)  What we do know, is that we used to spend a lot of time either having kiddos write notes home to their parents asking for supplies or emailing the parents ourselves. 
   So we finally decided to create a supply note.  It saves us SO much time! 
  We just print out a stack of them, clip them to the side of a file cabinet with a magnet, and show the kiddos where they are.  Now when they run low on pencils they just grab a note, fill in the appropriate sections, and take it home. 
Easy Peasy Mac and Cheesy!!!!!
