P.E. Central Lesson Plan: Name Cards
The students must know that they should always come in to the room and sit where their own name card is located. They should also know that they should not move their name card to another seat/desk.
Purpose of Activity:
To learn the names of your students, take roll quickly, and to control where students sit in the classroom.
Suggested Grade Level:
Materials Needed:
Thick paper (such as card stock or posterboard) cut into 8;5" x 11" pieces; You will need one piece for each student in the class;
Lesson Plan:
Description of Idea

Fold the thick paper in half so that it can sit on a desk like a tent. Write a students name on each side of the name card. Do this for every student in the class or you can have them make their own (be careful with this however!). Place the cards on the desks prior to the class entering the room.

As the students enter the room ask them to sit where their card is located. When all of the students are in the room you will easily know who is absent by looking for empty seats. Simply remove the card from that desk and you've taken roll quickly. You can also use these cards to learn their names at the start of the semester and you can use the cards when you want to group the students for an activity.
