Using clothespins in the classroom
Submitted by: Holley Collins, Kindergarten

I use a lot of clothespins in my classroom. One activity that I do throughout the year is the Sign-In chart. I write each child's name on a clothespin in permanent marker and clip them to the side of a plastic basket. I make a chart by drawing a line down the middle of a narrow piece of poster board (about a foot wide, and 2 ft long). Each day I write a question, with two possible answers, on a piece of construction paper and write the two possible answers at the bottom, one on the left side, one on the right side, so they will be above the divides on the chart. I clip the question to the top of the chartwith paper clips. The children come in to the classroom in the mornings and answer the question and clip their clothespin to the side of the chart. (Possible questions can include favorite colors, yes/no questions, etc). At a quick glance I can see who is at school that day and who is absent.
