Why We Don't Use a Sign-In Book in Preschool

Have you heard of the process of 'signing in' in the pre-k classroom?

When a student comes in for the day, he or she takes time to sign their name in a sign-in book or clipboard.  It is a way for children to practice writing their names each day.

Sounds good right?? Here is why we don’t use sign-in books in our preschool classroom.

The Benefits of a Visual Schedule

Schedules are an important way of life.   They keep us in a routine and get us to the places we need to be.  In a preschool classroom, a schedule is the backbone to our day.  It helps us get all the things done that we wanted to accomplish.  While I had my written schedule hanging up in the room, I found that many of my students were asking 'what do we do next?'.  So, I knew it was time to create a visual schedule for my little non-readers!
