I love the idea of numbering everything. I give my students a number based on alphabetical order, but we only use those numbers when we have the computer cart in the classroom - this makes it easy for students to know which computer to get. Your system of using numbers for everything sounds like a much more time-effective. Since we are already over half way through this year, this is something I can start working on now for the next class. I love the bathroom ticket idea as well. It is not only distracting to me when students need to interrupt a lesson to go to the restroom, but also to the other students.
Thank you for all the great ideas!
