Surf's Up Behavior
pickles and ketchups--On Fridays, place them on the board. Anyone who has turned in all of their assignments is a "pickle" so write their name under the pickle sign. Anyone who is missing an assignment has their name placed under the ketchup bottle. Pickles can "pick" a fun game or activity, while "ketchups" catch up on missing work. It is amazing how quickly assignments come in!
Take popsicle sticks...put velcro dots on both sides at both ends. Kids can make endless shapes and letters with the sticks.
Lots of organizational ideas on this page. I like the thought of using a shoe organizer in the closet like this one to easily find supplies. This would enable me to clear out at least one of the sets of storage drawers from the room and make more space.

Class Valentine Idea
Love this fun Valentine bookmark idea using paint chips, ribbon and heart punches! (add blue ones for those boys who are anti-pink or girls who don't like Valentines day that much!!)
Helps them understand the difference between city, state, country etc.
