My Future Classroom
I LOVE this!! Kids bring in a picture frame of their families and the classroom is decorated with them! How sweet to connect home and school!
Everything a new teacher could possibly want.. all organized so neatly into a website. And it's all FREEEE! This teacher rocks!
Place the word of the day inside the badge. As the children walk in the classroom have them read your word, when children ask you to tie their shoes or give a push on the swings, have them read the word! You can even make two and have your “special person of the week” wear it too!
Ladybug's Teacher Files: The Great Pencil Challenge (managing pencils!) LOVE this idea!
Lots of ideas for Kindergarten centers
Great and easy way to help students understand Author's Purpose!
What student wouldn't love to create a "Fakebook" profile for a historical figure as brainstorming for a biography project? Can be embedded into classwebsite or blog - or emailed to parents. Fantastic!

Getting Started with Whole Brain Teaching: - I use this for my class and it works at every level. It's simple, straight forward. I especially love that after I teach them and students for example call out (cause that never happens!!) instead of scolding, I simply say, "class? What's rule number 2?" and we move on
