Tried it Tuesday-Student Tracker Board

I am really excited to be linking up for the first time with Holly from Fourth Grade Flipper! Her Tried It Tuesday linky is perfect, especially for this time of the year.  I have been trying out new ideas in setting up my classroom for the past two weeks!  

Today I am sharing my Student Tracker Board that I created.  I first saw it on Pinterest courtesy of April over at A Modern Teacher.  She did a post on organizing that had tons of great ideas!


This is the picture of the tracker board from April's post.

Mission Organization: Organizing Everything In-Between

Great idea, right?  I decided that I would put my own little spin on it.  Are there any other teachers out there that have forgotten that a student was supposed to stay in at recess because of a discipline issue or late work?  Guilty of that!!  So, I decided I would make my board a reminder for who has to stay in at recess.  

The only two things I had to purchase for my project were the cookie sheet (got it at the dollar store) and some Command velcro strips.  I really wanted to make sure it wouldn't fall off the wall!  The rest of my materials I made or already had.  I made some student numbers and labels on my computer.  You can grab them for free from my store!

Then I grabbed some leftover ribbon, magnetic tape, and my hot glue gun.  I glued the ribbon around the cookie sheet, printed the labels, cut them out, laminated them, and put the magnetic tape on the back.  I made two different colored sets of numbers, because I teach another section of Social Studies. 

That's it!  I put it on the wall right next to my door so when I line my class up for recess, it will be right there.  No sneaking out to recess anymore!

Tried anything new lately?  Head on over to Fourth Grade Flipper and see what everyone else has tried today!


  1. First, your little bird at the top is adorable. :) Too cute! Thanks so much for the shout-out. I'm glad I could round up ideas from other bloggers that are tried and true. Sometimes it is nice to have it all in one spot. Thanks for your comment on the Monthly Curriculum Map. I hope you get a ton of use from that little freebie. Have a great year!! ~April
