Weekly Report...great for Parent communication.

Read aloud expectations.

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!!

AWESOME IDEA! Gallon Ziploc bags + Duck tape = An art quilt! Students' work slides in the back. You won't see where it says Ziploc because that is on the back side!
