daily objective dry erase boards made with scrapbook paper and inexpensive frames!

Laminate, have students write the answer to an exit slip with dry erase marker. Color code by class. Good way to quickly assess. Kids grab ticket on way in the room, drop in basket on way out.

Apple pie- great to try for Thanksgiving

Reading Fair Projects-M.F. in 6th grade did this and then others from the community were invited to "judge" them. (Criteria: display, ivideo which was a trailer made by the kid for the book, knowledge of the book, and appearance of the child (business casual dress))

student number bookmarks to hold the place when they "check out" a book from your classroom library. brilliant!
