A cute and easy way to do brain breaks. Anytime I think one is necessary in my classroom I would have a student come up and draw from the cup blindly and whichever activity they draw the whole class will do. All these ideas are real simple and provide as a quick break to help refocus my future students.
Overall reminders for students when adding info (text, visuals, handouts, etc.) to their IN. If you don't have bulletin board space, it would be helpful to add at least a chart in the classroom with these reminders.

Good idea to introduce interactive notebooks.
