As I am getting back into school mode, I am having some back to school nightmares! One of the scariest times for me as a teacher is DISMISSAL! I fear putting a kinder on the wrong bus, or putting them on the bus when they needed to be in the car line. I have a dismissal cheat sheet that hangs on the frame of my classroom door. It has all my students and their normal transportation listed on it. I clip any notes that come in through our communication notebooks to my cheat sheet, so everything I need is all in one place! I like having it at the door so I can see it and not forget it as we are leaving the classroom!
During the first few weeks of school (and on days I have a sub) I like to put bus labels on my kinders! One of my nightmares is that they will not get off the bus in the right spot, especially at the beginning of school. We have also had problems with them falling asleep on the bus and missing their spot. So I put a label that includes the address and a phone number for emergencies!
Here is the label I use (it is formatted to fit 2"x4" Avery Shipping Labels) and a FREEBIE for you! Just click on the picture to download! :)
