First thing I am going to talk about are Where Am I boards. If you haven’t heard of this, it is a board that helps tell your residents where you are. I have a picture example of mine and I absolutely love it. If you do not have access to a color copier or a lamination machine, you can always try using paint strips. On the paint strip you make a brief list of where you are and mark it with a paper clip. I find this particular craft really essential, because it is a simple way to communicate with your residents. Here are pictures of both.
