Helpful Hints on Hump Day {Field Trip Style}

I'm linking up today with Teresa from Fun in K/1
Helpful Hint #1
Instead of handing your parent volunteer a list of student names, hand them a lanyard with an ID sleeve attached!
 Insert a list of the students each parent is responsible for and...
No more wrinkled lists!
Helpful Hint #2
I made new book bags this year and just happened to still have my old ones.
I gave each student one before leaving for the fruit ranch.
They put their lunch in them to carry on the bus and after lunch, their pumpkins for safe keeping!
Weeeeell...You get the idea!
No  more torn bags and pumpkins rolling down the aisle of the bus!
Make sure you stop by Teresa's blog for some other great hints.

  1. Veronica - you little smartie pants girl. What a great idea!!! The lanyard for parents on field trips is fab... I will try that this year for sure! Thanks a bunch!

    1. I'm glad you found that helpful. It was a DUH moment I had yesterday and it worked beautifully! Next year I may add the students pics next to their names.

  2. I will surely be using the lanyard idea when going on our next field trip! I'm going to pin your idea right now!

    1. Just pinned it and it's being repinned like crazy! :)

    2. Thanks Elizabeth! I've yet to figure out how to get the pin it icon on my blog. Any hints?

    3. I found a YouTube video tutorial that I followed to help me install the code. The first time I tried to add the HTML, it didn't work. It was the video that really helped to to figure it out! If I had the link, I would share it... but I can't find it right now :-(
