Information Please
Create a student database.

Create a database of student information with fields for first and last name, middle initial, phone number, parents' names, and so on. Once the information is in the database, you can use it to make desk tags, locker tags, birthday cards, certificates, labels for each student, report card comments .

Label it Easy
Computer-generated labels can replace stickers.

Use your computer's address label maker to create labels printed with special messages -- such as "Keep up the good work!" "Way to go!" and "Sign and return!"

Making the Grade
Electronic grade books aid teaching.

Use an electronic grade book to record students' grades. The Education World article Grading Software: Sorting Through the Choices can help you choose the best software for you.
