Engaging your ECS students from Day 1

I decided to do something a bit different this year after seeing how important group work was with ECS.  Instead of just having the students come in each class period and sitting down, I introduced sorting and communication through having them sit according to my board (see attached images).  From the very first day they were learning the difference between rows and columns, organization, leadership, teamwork, and SORTING!  Now the students come in and don't even sit down until they see what the day's "sort" is.

I can not see anyone's attachments. Is there a trick I am missing?

I don't know as I am new at this. Perhaps one of the moderators can help both of us?

Let's see if this works better to give you images of what I did
