How to Help Students Who Forget to Put Names on Papers

Are you frustrated by students forgetting to put their names on their papers? This classroom management tip will help solve the problem of no name papers.

I really like this cute little craft to help manage the nameless papers that need claiming. In order to decrease the collection, I have found the following tip to be helpful with whole class assignments. 

Soon after they get settled with the paper I say, "point to you name and clap twice." This signals to the others to add the name if it was forgotten. It also tends to redirect the class as a whole. If there was chit chat buzzing in the room from the transition to the activity, the clapping seems to get them all right on task.

Win-Win!
