think might have said about this before but if not we have a fish shape with velcro on the children have circle shaped name cards which are shiny - they choose their name and put on the fish to make rainbow fish - we found that the children loved this and were always eager to decorate and make the fish look like rainbow fish by adding their name

This may be too late now. I have used a photo of the children with their names on the back. These were laminated and stuck on to a lollipop stick. The children had to put them in to a pot. The bonus was that it helped children with difficultly recognising their names. The down side was that a couple of children posted them into the radiator!

After our refurbishment during the summer, we had a fat metal pole holding the ceiling up!

 

I asked the workmen to paint it so that it looked like the bark of a tree, which they made a wonderful job of.

After doing hand prints for leaves, the children all cut out apple shapes, wrote their names on, and after being laminated and having magnets stuck on them, they use this for self registration.

We will be adding Autumn coloured hand prints soon, and changing our apples, maybe for conkers.

The options are limitless during the year, can't wait until Christmas!

Hi there

 

We have a velcroed card with each child's own picture symbol and name on, on a table in the entrance porch. When they arrive they find their own card and then look for their key worker in nursery who has the same colour coded registration card for their own group and they stick themselves on. Later in the year the cards change to name only in preparation for the move into receeption. It's a nice system as we can position ourselves in strategic positions to greet and encourage our our children into areas they don't frequent, and it is good informal chat time with our parents too. My last years group were totally in love with one another and would keep coming back to check whether the rest were in yet - sometimes there was a reception committee waiting by the time the last one arrived!

We have a photo board where an entry photo is taken of each child (usually done at their visit or during first week and then laminated and placed on the board), and then their name and a picture that starts with the same letter sound (such as Jack and Jam, or Olivia and Orange) is on a seperate velcroed laminated strip which they can place under their photo. This same picture is also put above their coat peg.

 

Children like to see who has arrived and also parents often use this as a gentle way of settling their children "oh who's here?", "Can you find your name?" "Can you remember your picture?" are often things we hear at the start of the sessions.

 

We give these to the children/parents when they leave us to go to school. It's amazing how much the children change from 2 and a half to 4 and a half!
