Read Kind is Cooler Mrs. Ruler - Random Acts of Kindness Board. Meant for a teacher to use in a classroom, but great examples to give your kids of things they can easily incorporate into their day to make someone else's day better. :-)

2013-2014 Binder Covers + Back to School Forms

For Special Services staff to complete for regular educators/staff... IEP at a Glance with services/accommodations/etc.

good reminder for kids...what a great idea!

easy to make, inexpensive kindergarten graduation or end of the year student gifts GingerBabyMama: Kindergarten Graduation Presents

This would be soooo cute for each of our classes! Maybe with our class name?

First, teacher blows some bubbles and, as expected, the kids all pop them. Then, she challenges them to NOT pop the bubbles even if one lands on the tip of their nose. Introduce the concept of self control and launch a discussion about stopping to think before you act. You can refer back to the lesson again and again. "Think about that time when we didn't pop the bubbles..."

Classroom DIY: DIY Simple End of the Year Gift

"I did this last year and the kids loved it!! Countdown to last day of school. Pop one balloon each day. Inside is a special surprise for the day. Ex. No homework, read outside, work with no shoes on, chew gum in the morning, etc."

Absent Bin…an easy way to make students responsible for getting make-up work. Great idea!  Any extra copies go to the “extra copies” bin by the door.  This might make for a more independent classroom though!

"....When a student proudly brings me a card or drawing, I read it and tell them how wonderful they are, and then direct them to the Cards to Remember book. They add their card or drawing to the binder. I leave the binder on display so other students can look through it." - I MUST do this next year!!!

Interactive SMART Board Games: Making review games fun through the smartboard (Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, Are you Smarter than a 5th Grader, Jeopardy, Deal or No Deal, Classroom Feud)

Great use of 7 habits of Happy kids. Instead of working on multiple behaviors all at once which can be challenging with the younger ones, try sticking with one specific behavior goal for the entire week until it's changed. Then reinforce it when appropriate while working on a new one.

Last year I did this fun note writing activity with my students and they are still talking about it this year! During the month of February, they get to write nice notes to each other {when they finish their work}. At the end of the day, when we pass the notes out, they are so touched at the nice things their classmates say about them. This activity will definitely build classroom unity among your students.

Use dvd cases with solid paper for mini "white" boards...everybody gets a glove/sock for an eraser to store inside the case. BRILLIANT idea!

When a child is unfriendly in class, they have to pick a random act of kindness. This is a great tool for redirection rather than disciplining... good re-teach for PBIS

IEP at a glance… would be fabulous to leave for sub… nothing confidential, but the sub would know what accommodations to make.

Kids look for random acts of kindness to fill the Grinch with love. Whenever they see someone doing something nice for someone else, the person doing the kind deed gets to put a heart on the Grinch. If we can fill the Grinch with hearts, we get to have a Grinch Christmas Party the day before Christmas Break! ... this is such a good idea!!
