Friday Journals—kids write a note on Friday to their parents telling what they learned that week. The parents write a short response back to their child, and the child brings the notebook back Monday. Each parent response earns a sticker for the cover. Love it—a great way to practice letter writing, and to get parents involved. Helps the children ingrain what has been taught into their memory too.
Zip tie crates to end of table groups to make an organizer for each group. kinda genius!
30 Jokes your kids will love! Maybe I'll use these as rewards for 'brownie points'. They'll get to choose the card for the joke... OR... They can volunteer more jokes for our 'Joke Jar'... Research and write down on an index card. Ooh! I ths this idea is growing wings!
Put class list in a frame to easily mark and erase. It would be cool to add a line at the top where you could write what you're checking off such as "Field Trip Money." that way you can easily keep track with a collection and the kids can see it, eliminating the constant questions!
Bath mats for Read to Self areas? What a cute idea!
