Come on in! Join Pinterest today...it only takes like a second or so.

like this idea but would not use it with clips. I may walk around with a marker and begin writing the letters of the word FOCUS on their desks. When they have the whole word written, they get rewarded.....

This idea is so smart and simple, I'm ashamed I didn't come up with it first. =] "This is one of my FAVORITE classroom management tools!! It can be soooo time consuming to answer the questions...Can we use markers?, Do we turn this in?, Is this a talking activity? I love using these assignment choice signs to answer those questions without me doing the work.

Hanging Out In First!!: Free Calendars and more

MADE me LAUGH~ couldn't help but pin it!!!! They respond to songs. How about chants?? cute Thanksgiving line up chant

Awesome brain breaks and Minute to Win it activities/explanations!

super cute idea -behavior board. When students do something good, pull out a stick with a number on it (1-100). When 10 numbers in a row are colored in, students get a party!

LOVE THIS Tell the class to keep the noise level down so the balls won't bounce {so very cool!!}

Great for Reading/Writing Conferences for the Week. Put class list in a frame to easily mark and erase. It would be cool to add a line at the top where you could write what you're checking off such as "Field Trip Money." that way you can easily keep track with a collection and the kids can see it, eliminating the constant questions!

when students participate when no one else is or answer a challenging question they can get 'smart beads' to wear. they trade in smart beads at the end of the day for a little note that goes home to their parents! Love this idea to encourage participation!

Just what I NEED to keep me on track with my time. Set up classroom transitions to music that happen automatically. Keeps you on time while also providing fun transitions for students!

Use the bracelets for assigning students into teams for class projects. Or if you want random team assignment, put the bracelets in a paper bag and have students close their eyes and pick one.
