Third Grade Galore: Favorite Pins Friday

classroom expectations | method to organize classroom expectations...this is interesting.

Hmmm... Don't waste time sifting through piles of worksheets - save yourself the headache and create a “master book,” a tool that organizes all your papers and keeps them all in one place.

AWESOME!!!! Use green, yellow, and red colored cups for group work. When a table gets too loud, change the cup to yellow. If the table continues to be too loud, the cup gets changed to red; this means a loss of group time. Students now have to do their work independently and silently.

These are great questions to ask on the first day of school! Students record answers on sticky notes. Great blog post about it as well!
