Everything for the week in one place.. Make the students responsible for the work! :)
Instead of post-its, use a grid style seating chart for each class - make many copies! Take notes regularly on each kiddo. Easy way to write down quick observations, then you can transfer the post-its to a notebook for each student - this would be great to keep track of and use at conferences. I often blank on specifics of what a student struggled with in class; this would be a great, easy note-taking system.

Classroom Organization--Must have when looking after a roster full of students!!!
This procedure would be good to use in my classroom whenever my students have been absent. I would explain to them that whenever they miss a day of school, they can come back the next day and go to the proper folder (the folders are organized by days of the week) to pick up the work they missed.

This is simple way to call on students when no one is volunteering! Kinda like popsicle sticks, but much more techy! Also has "group" setting
Hmm... interesting... Free web-based program to send updates to parents and students via text message. They subscribe online and you don't ever have to know their phone numbers and they never have to know yours. Great way to keep kids updated. texts, text parents teachers, remind101, phone number, school, student, parent remind, text messag, remind 101
Very cool parent reminder. They sign up online, you fill out online, they get a text. You never have to know their numbers, they never have to know yours! My daughter's teachers used this and we LOVED it!
English can be such a great language
NOW EDITABLE!! You will NEVER have to thumb around your desk and filing cabinets for what you need again! You will already have it in your binder...organized and neatly placed!

Several of my students refer to me as Ms. Swagger because if you say my name too quickly then it sounds like Swagger not Waggoner. If I just taught middle school this would be a really cool poster to have in my room, but I don't think it would go over as well with my high school students. high school classroom rules, classroom idea, teacher ideas middle school, swag, grade 5 classroom management, middle school classroom rules, classroom rules high school, behavior track, middle school behavior
