NOISE…removing one letter at a time when our voice level gets too loud. When NO is left, there is NO more talking! Love this! A lot more clearer than just putting up strikes on the board or letting the noise escalate to a point where you just cut off talking. It also gives the kids a chance to regain control of their noise before it gets to that point.
Divide the inside of a file folder into boxes that are slightly larger than small sticky notes. Write students' names in the boxes in alphabetical order, one name per box. Whenever you want to make a note about a student's progress, jot the information on a sticky note and then place it in the appropriate box. Periodically move the sticky notes to students' assessment folders. You'll have valuable information at your fingertips when it's time to prepare report cards.

Zap Review Game...great because the "smartest" team may not win :) IDK about the intentions of this game, b/c I haven't read the original link yet, but how cool/easy would it be to use this board for various reviews through out the year. Create questions on index cards to fit each topic and when you need to review a certain topic pull out the board with the corresponding topics and play.
