My evaluations are tied into my student's performance and my principal is requiring me to track data. This is perfect! Research shows that when students track their own learning and understanding with student data tracking or graphing binders, there is an improvement in student learning and a tremendous amount of motivation. Perfect for my data center. See this awesome data tracking for student$!
"Instant Data As we went over each question, I had students color in the square if they had that question wrong. Once we were done with the test, I took each strip and taped them to a manilla folder. INSTANT data!!! I did not have to plug numbers into a computer. I can clearly see that question 9 is one I really need to go over."
Sometimes kids just need a break! I would use these in my classroom, especially with younger kids. It has all different types of dances and songs that go along with them. When the kids are getting restless, I will have them stand up and do a brain break! It is fun and exciting for them!
work boxes, have one for each student, when they finish their work they can go to their work box and pull out things to work on that the teacher has placed in there. (lets the teacher assign different things for the student/if they need extra practice in an area) - DIFFERENTIATION!
