February Check-In Board

Help children recognize their names by having a check-in board. I change mine each month. This on is made from white poster board. I drew a mailbox,colored it then added magnet strips (we have 18 students so I put 18 strips on the board. Use hearts (store bought or made from poster bard) laminate and add magnetic strips to the back to connect to the board. The children move their name from the “big” heart (also made from poster board, see picture below) to the mailbox as they arrive each morning. On a sentence strip write “Look Who’s Here Today” and put above the boards.

Happy Valentine’s Day Signs
