    I had my kids line up in number order a few years ago, and it worked well. About half way through the year we started lining up in reverse number order--they loved that.

    However, last year I started assigning 2 weekly leaders (which were 2 of my classroom jobs), and one was the line leader while the other was the line ender. Then the rest of the kids would line up in the order they arrived at the door. We had only one class meeting about place in line, and we all decided that 3rd graders do not care about place in line, and skipping/cutting in line--it was a second grade issue that they were ready to leave behind---and it was FABULOUS! I'll do the same thing again this year. They were so mature about it, and felt that they decided how to behave, not me.

    So, good luck!
