Character Chart~ This chart packs a lot of important information onto one, easy-to-understand display. It's part of a post from Using My Teacher Voice on playing Character Bingo with the class. I plan to make a chart like this and place it in a prominent location in my classroom! positive behavior, anchor charts, first week activities, classroom management, teacher, 1st day, first day activities, kid, back to school

One of the teachers I work with suggested this idea at our first faculty meeting this year and I thought it was so smart! When kids are pulled for speech, OT, reading groups, etc., they put the cup on their desk to say they are out of the room. It makes it easy to glance around the room and see who has been pulled. cup, read group, reading groups, student, classroom desk, year one, meet the teacher ideas, speech room ideas, kid

"I’ll pass out two or three poker chips to every student. As we begin the discussion I ask each student to give me back a chip each time they answer a question. Rapidly the talking students use up their chips. Since they can no longer speak in the class it leaves the non-talking students to answer the remaining questions." @Hannah Mestel Mestel Mestel Mestel Spencer poker chip, chips, agricultural education, engaging students, student engagement strategies, engagements, classroom discussion, class engagement, mestel mestel
Engaging Students: Pass out three plastic chips to each student at the beginning of lesson; collect a chip each time a student answers a question. Soon, it will leave your active participants unable to answer anymore and the quieter students will be the only ones able to speak.
The Nest Effect: Motivation & Rewards in My Classroom -- I love Vistaprint! And I hate tickets or class cash. The punch card idea is nice, maybe along with the class chart. Of course, instead of spelling, it'll be math drills! vistaprint, business cards, school, classroom reward, print busi, reward system, punch card, vista print, teacher
Love this idea- use Vista Print business cards as classroom rewards/punch cards!
