Teaching and Tapas. Alyssha teaches in a workshop format and uses clothespins and her clipboard to keep track of her student conferring schedule. We're talking organizational simplicity! Alyssha's idea can easily be adapted to be used during teacher conferences, student assessments or any way in which you need to meet with and keep track of your students.
I remember being in fifth grade and my teacher handing back my paper with big holes at the top because of her stapling it to the bulletin board. Trust me, your students will thank you for not defiling their papers, plus using clothespins is much faster and easier than stapling. Glue two flat thumb tacks to the back of the clothespins so they stick into the bulletin board. Totally easy!

|I should buy stock in clothespins!|
|Everyone wants to be the paper passer!|
We had individualized “charts” placed at the student's desk. This “chart” was a craft stick colored in thirds green, yellow, and red and a clothespin that can be moved to the appropriate color. (I never once had a student change their chart.) Either chart monitoring system you choose, there should be clothespins involved.
|Excellent tool, once again!|
