Ace Your Teacher Interview: 149 Fantastic Answers to Tough Interview Questions..so needed
Love this idea for the first day of school! Have the kiddos make something with playdough while you are taking care of first day housekeeping (supplies, etc.) Then have students write about what they made. Great for the 1st item in their writing portfolio!
Put student's names on the back of YOUR nametag so that you won't have to worry about finding the list during something like a firedrill.
I like this because it can be used to keep not only the teacher organized but the students as well. You can label the container the different subjects in which to turn in your homework, test, or for paper that are to be sent home the next day. And that they are small enough that you can have multiple containers and can stack them on top of each other withour taking up too much room.
Helps keep piles off the desk! Seriously a great idea! Idea for @Michelle Hillman
Hand Signal - Classroom Management. I really like this management style! Great way to stop classroom interruptions.
Time-out bottles. Fill a bottle with 3/4 water, one bottle of glitter glue, & ultra fine glitter. Then send this bottle with your child to timeout and they can watch it settle to calm them. Once the glitter is settled their time is up!
Students must highlight their name before putting it in the tray. Great way to make sure all papers have names! LOVE THIS!! So smart.
Have the kids make their own faces from construction paper and they can use string/yarn for hair! Make sure to explain that when they put their face on the wall it means they are going to keep the class promise all year! One change I would possibly make to this would be to have the kids put their faces on the board so it can be like they were signing it. Just an idea. But i love this!
Funny- They have to leave it on their desk for when they come back...Love this because YEAH RIGHT they really wash their hands on their own in the bathroom every time!
Movement Sticks... good idea
