To avoid the arguments about who will pass out papers or run to the office, I select a VIP each day. I write each student's name on a piece of paper and make a small flip chart using individual binder rings. I put this on a bulletin board where the class can see. Every morning when we enter the classroom, one of the first things we do is see who the VIP is. This cuts down on hurt feelings, and I can make sure that everyone gets a turn.
