I just used a piece of fingerpaint paper because that is what I had available and some Sharpies. I used different colored Sharpies so young children who are still learning to read can distinguish between each other's quotes.
I always like to underline the heading, again to help distinquish that it is seperate from their quotes.
I wrote their names here however, if time allows and the children are able, they may try to write their own name. If they are able to write sentences then let them write their own dictations. Also, if you want to conserve paper, you can make a laminated posterboard and write the dictations daily with a dry-erase marker. If you are doing this at home you may frame the Daily News and write on the glass; dry erase markers wipe right off:)
