Oftentimes staff have a “Where am I board” on their door. You can also make one for residents. Be sure to leave a place where you can write the name of the residents.
Here are only a few of many ideas:
- ClockSupplies Needed: Brass fastener Construction Paper, markers
Instructions: Cut out a circle. Cut out an arrow for a hand of a clock. On the top of the clock write the student’s name. At various positions around the clock put where a student might be (at class, dining hall, sleeping (do not disturb), I’m in, knock, out. Then attach the hand to the middle of the circle by using the brass fastener.
This is a brass fastener.
- Paint Pallet
Supplies Needed: White poster board, paint, construction paper, Velcro, brushes
Instructions: Cut out a paint pallet, put various splotches of color on the pallet (as an artist would have). Next to each color put where the student might be (at class, dining hall, sleeping (do not disturb), I’m in, knock, out. Stick a piece of Velcro next to each statement. Attach the other part of the Velcro to a small craft paintbrush. This can be moved to the various Velcro next to each statement. Paint the students name along the top of the pallet.
