Filling the Frame with Learning: Week 22- Leader in Me Visit

My solution to my students forgetting pencils/having to sharpen pencils. They already have class numbers and now they all have a pencil that must be left in my classroom at all times. If a pencil goes missing I know whose it is by the missing number and they will lose points off their grade. I call it "The Silencer." :) GENIUS!!

The Middle School Mouth

At the beginning of every month, everyone starts off in the homework club. If they turn all their homework in on time, then they get to stay in the club! If they don't then they are out of the club. Students who turn all their homework in for the entire month get to come to our monthly homework club lunch.

You put an item in the mystery bag and then have the kids take turns asking questions to try to narrow down the possibilities. It is great to develop deductive reasoning skills. (You could also do this with sticky notes all week and "reveal" it on Friday. Have a separate piece of paper where students place their questions throughout the week. As you have time, move their questions to the "Yes" or "No" side. It will generate excitement all week long.)

use address labels, clipboard, and large index cards. Write your notes on the address labels as you walk around and observe. Later, stick them onto the child's index card. Quick and easy! Then, during parent/teacher conferences, just pull out the notecard and share your observations

Could work as a classroom end of the year idea! Have one person sit on a chair in front of a white board while the others wrote a positive phrase about them. Take a picture to give to each person. A very creative and positive group activity!!
