Right now one of my biggest - and quite frankly, most annoying problems, is lining up. This can also be listed as one of my top 5 annoyances from last year.
I *know* how to line up kids. I actually think I'm quite good at it. ABC order by first name. I call each kid up one at a time to find their spot, giving verbal reminders who to stand behind ( they are still learning each others names). So here is the problem. The door is less than 2 feet from the bathroom door. And I am in a portable - line up space, not so much. I love the numbers/shapes on tile floors. I have carpet. I thought about stapling shapes/colors to the carpet floor . Custodians will.not.be.happy!!
Once we get in line (remember, we are 16 kids, ages 3-5) and start moving - we are pretty good.
I would love to hear suggestions/thoughts.
