Classroom Transition DJ on PowerPoint has different songs to signal to students where they need to transition next. Kids will love the old tv theme songs they hear to tell them to line up or pack up their backpacks instead of you having to tell them over and over.
Student Transitional, Kid
I developed this collection of songs to help my students transition in the classroom throughout the day. I chose a variety of old tv theme songs of varying lengths. When I click a song, students know immediately where they are supposed to go or what they are supposed to do by the end of the song.

Make STEM learning part of your daily routine!
Engineering on a Dime: 3 STEM Challenges You Can Do Today . STEM challenges are a great way to explore engineering when you lack the time to devote to a rigorous engineering design challenge. These three challenges can be set up with very little prep time and with materials you either have on hand or can easily obtain.

Clever idea! Use wall pop vinyl stickers on a table as a personal dry erase board.
Wall Pops, Grade Math, Classroom Decor, Vinyls Stickers, Pop Vinyls, White Boards, Erase Boards, Classroom Management, Clever Ideas
Classroom Management: This strategy will prevent students from having to get up and move around the room to get dry erase boards. I would have them have a bucket of supplies to put under their chairs for the duration of their table work.
For cheap white boards at every desk, laminate sheets of construction paper and tape them to the table (or don’t tape them if you want moveable white boards). As an alternative, you can use pop vinyl stickers. They’re sold at Bed, Bath, and Beyond, three for $9.99. They could be cheaper elsewhere. The plus of these is that they can easily be moved.
"Challenge capsules" for students who finish early-- keep those high achievers moving. I love the choice/surprise element here. It makes it a privilege, not a punishment. If we make sure the activities aren't just more of the same, this is great idea!
Student, Achievement Moving, High Achievement, Cool Ideas, Early Finish, Classroom Management, Challenges Capsule, Teacher, Kid
"Challenge capsules" for students who finish early-- keep those high achievers moving. I love this idea. It keeps the early finishers busy with something besides reading. You could put activities that still strengthen reading and comprehension that are more fun then having to sit and read. This helps them to keep expanding their learning without becoming bored and distractive to the other students still learning.
"Challenge capsules" for students who finish early-- keep those high achievers moving :) Having extra challenging activities for each subject is beneficial to use in a classroom management plan because when your students are occupied with learning they will be less disruptive of others. This supports Montessori's idea of giving students choice as well.
For my teacher friends. "Challenge capsules" for students who finish early-- keep those high achievers moving :)
Such a cool idea... Challenge capsules for students who finish early. After finishing their daily work the students can pick one of the capsules and then complete the task inside. A different way to do "Mystery Motivators"...add some cool activities that kids rarely get to do in school, like wear their sunshades in the room for 10 minutes or "Quiz the Teacher" as a test review activity!

Such a cool idea! This will help each student feel important, needed, and supported in the classroom. I would maybe allow other students to write complements for their peers as well (but make sure that everyone is included, not just a few people). This can also help to create great bonds between students and teachers. Everyone wants to feel important!

This would be a great idea. Students could put a sticky note on the picture as well. "Positivity Wall"?
No matter the grade you teach - praise is vitally important. I teach Year 11 and 12 and stickers never go out of style. Classroom idea
What a great idea! Everyone needs 'warm fuzzies'! Even once a week (Firdays?,) let the students leave for the weekend feeling good about themselves - sometimes the smallest 'thing' can mean the most! I wish I had done this when I was teaching! It could be the bright spot in their lives for some of them! I bet they'd all leave the room smiling and feeling good!

Tagless Desk Name Tags~ Sharpie Paint pens are the secret to writing student names right on desks. No picking, peeling, or rubbing off. A dry erase marker and tissue easily removes the name at year's end. Check out this and other interesting blog posts at Timeout and Tootsie Rolls!
Replace those ugly names tags: Remove sharpie paint pen with expo marker, magic eraser, germ-x, or nail polish remover.
