Your Job -vs- My Job: This is a great back to school activity. We met up at the small group table and discussed jobs that students might have, and the jobs a teacher has to do. We discussed what would happen if we didn't do these things? Once we created our anchor chart we all signed it as a contract reminding ourselves of the importance of being responsible and doing our jobs in the classroom. teacher job, first week, anchor charts, student work, classroom management, 1st day, first day activities, small groups, back to school

Use two colors for name calling sticks. Flip the stick after you've called that student. Brilliant!
Laminate, have students write the answer to an exit slip with dry erase marker. Color code by class. Good way to quickly assess. Kids grab ticket on way in the room, drop in basket on way out.

Then, she puts the notes on their desks for them to find on the first day of school! classroom idea, file folder, parent letters, teacher, student desk, open hous, getting organized, back to school, second grade

Great idea! When students are at lunch the "Punctuation Super Heroes" sneak in and leave Skittles on correct punctuation. Very motivating. This is a funny blog about it! motivating students, super hero teaching ideas, correct punctuat, student desk ideas, student write, student motivation, punctuat mark, teachers desk area, student writing motivation
Pinner said: After my students write a piece I have them leave it on their desks when they go to lunch or special area classes, I place a Skittle on each correct punctuation mark (and I usually put one or two one if they indent a paragraph). Great mystery motivator too- they won't know what days you'll leave skittles
