Today I want to share a quick tip for organizing the hall passes my students bring to class. It's a simple method: I have a "dropbox" where my students automatically drop their hall passes (and clinic notes).
I love this strategy because once they know the routine, they are able to turn in their passes without interrupting the flow of the lesson. I usually take a minute at the end of class or during the passing period to sort their passes and store the ones I need to keep. I used to use a little metal bin I had, but I saw this little bin at the dollar tree and it matches my classroom color scheme, so of course I had to purchase it :) It's the perfect size for our passes at 6"x4".
And now for the freebie: Here you can download your own set! It has 4 different patterns and fonts.
