Writing Pin 2: Scene of the Crime Writing: Set up a fake crime scene. Then have all the children to gather around and examine the scene of the crime. After they have all looked at the crime scene have them return to their desk and tell them to write a story about what they thought happened. This will make some interesting stories, but I would use this in only 4th or 5th grade.

Sea horses from paper plates - except that why not cut three around the plate facing the same way? Or if you want the curve, you could still get three from one plate, that is 3 pairs from 2 plates.

Camp Counselor Manifesto Poster. Mainly true. Unfortunately, I don't get to hold the awesome position of camp counselor this summer but it is truly one of the best "jobs" ever. I would add to this poster that I believe in camp, because I believe in Jesus and his power to transform lives. It's all about him!

Non-negotiable #6 - Mix up grouping. When planning small groups, I think it is important to mix up groups often and not only group by ability level. Sometimes grouping can be more effective when it is done randomly. A teacher must know they dynamics of her students and group based upon those dynamics, not just the students ability level.
