Washi Tape... Student Sticks

I have seen everyone doing cute things with Washi Tape and I haven't had time to:
a) figure out what it is
b) figure out how to use it

I went to Michael's and found some Washi Tape in the scrapbooking section.  It is just a roll of tape that has cute prints on it!  It can peel off, and re-stick, so it is easy to work with!  I decided to use the Washi Tape on my student sticks!

Here are my supplies: 
1. a jar
2. Washi Tape
3. Popsicle sticks

I wrapped one end of the popsicle stick in the Washi Tape.

Then I wrote the student numbers on the sticks.

How this works is, I will place all of the sticks in the jar, Washi Tape facing up.  I will pull out a sick and read the number.  That child will either answer the question, or it will be their turn.  Once their turn is over, I will place the stick back in the jar, WASHI SIDE DOWN.  That way, I will know that the student has already had a turn.  Once everyone's stick is Washi side down, I will flip all of the sticks over, and start again!  Fair and square?  I think so!

In years past, I have done this same thing, but painted both ends of the stick different colors.  But then you have to wait for them to dry (and I make a mess).  I was going to do the other end of the stick a different color Washi Tape...but why?  This saves money and time, and still looks cute!

  4. Such a great idea! I have been using clothespins for years and had to remake them each year because I put the students' names on them. This is so much easier and I can use year after year. Thanks so much.
