Planner passes

I am linking up 4th Grade Frolics a few days late for her Monday Made It.

I did a previous blog post about How Our School Handles Passes.  It drives me cray cray when students are coming up to me in June and still.not.filling.their.passes.out.properly.  For the past two years I've had "How to fill out a planner pass properly" on my "Passes to Make" over the summer To Do List.  At the end of the school year I finally followed through on making a poster for my classroom.  I will post this in a couple key spots in my classroom and then next year when students come up to me for the umpteenth time with a pass with no date or time, I will politely refer them to the poster.  This may save my sanity next year, we shall see.

Every student at our school gets a student planner that has 6 passes per week.

A close-up of what the planner passes look like.

This is the poster I made:

I will mount this on black paper.
I posted here how I keep track of Student Passes.  I code them LP-Locker Pass, BP-Bathroom Pass, and DP-Drink Pass. Those are really the only three passes they would write out in their student planners.


  1. Great idea! Its amazing how such little things can be so helpful!

  2. Hi there!

    I've been surfing Pinterest and have come across your blog several times. Although I've been teaching for a few years now, this will be my first time teaching math. I was curious, what is your favorite math focus website to use either in the classroom or for homework/review/practice?

    In addition, what program do you use to create your posters? They look great! I saw that you had some printed at VistaPrint. I've never used them, but I will definitely check them out.

    Thank you for your time and assistance,
