Self check during independent reading time

I need to try something!

Cute little cookie cups filled with ice cream and topped with homemade magic shell!

Here's a set of bookmarks with sentence starters that can be usd to facilitate accountable talk in the classroom-math specifically.

work flip signs: one side says "I need help," another side says "I'm working hard," last side says "I'm finished." Helps with monitoring progress and (hopefully) keeps students from getting out of their seats/shouting out your name constantly.

iPad/iPhone app that records students reading and gives you a running record!

What the Teacher Wants!: Common Core Data Checklists! They have grades K, 1 and 5 posted now - I'm staying tuned for when they put out 3rd grade!

Hot glue a ribbon on the back of a composition notebook for students to use as a bookmark. Works in a spiral notebook as well.

owl classroom theme | The new Owl Stars Classroom Collection will have your students feeling ...

Office Max will cut composition books in half... Great idea since younger students do not use the whole page in a journal!

Self assessment rubic, ticket out the door that gives teachers insight to students understanding

THE most A-M-Azing book to teach/introduce Inferencing

Love that everything flips. No more buckets of extra calendar numbers

Idea adapted to a classroom: "every time a student catches someone doing something kind, they put the kind person's name on a piece of paper ALONG WITH the act of kindness. Then they SIGN the paper with their name and put it the jar. Once a week, the teacher draws a name from the jar and both kids get a treat"

Love this Word Wall!... kinder can organize common words and sight words

During our morning meeting, we color code the message. Everyday we look for capital letters and color them green, punctuation is red, and sight words are in orange.

I like the rewards this teacher used for Class Dojo. This is a good replacement for earning marbles as a whole class. Good incentive to work together as a family!

Wrap a piece of cardboard in fabric and put at back of bookcase instead of painting or wallpaper. You can change as often as you want.

great way to organize math the numbers in the pocket chart. Have many stations already set up, then just note on the top which ones are for choosing for guided math.
