A chart called Thinkmarks that can be posted at the front of the class room and copied into an Interactive Notebooks. I'm thinking these Thinkmarks could help encourage the Close Reading skills that Common Core seems to think is new.
It's called a "Blurt Chart". If students blurt out they take a happy face off the chart (they are velcroed on). They have 3 chances throughout the day. You can take minutes away from recess, etc. for each happy face taken off the chart.
Fun Friday stuff, not more learning. :) Plus, this post is hilarious. :) Fun Friday Idea-Kids who have earned the most good behavior tickets throughout the week get to choose first from the Fun Friday board!
