Zap Review Game...great because the "smartest" team may not win :) My student teacher played this with my class! They loved it!

A bunch of ways to use floor tape in your classroom- wow- I didn't realize how awesome this stuff was! Pin now- get later!!

Lock Smocks = Genius! A way to keep your door locked for a lock down, but still let kids come in and out. Very fast way to lock the door quickly instead of fumbling for your keys.

speeding ticket for students that rush through their work.

Love this--students could write the number on the top of their paper before they turn it in. That way they don't risk embarrassment or refuse to ask questions during class discussion.

These sticky note "jot spots" are intended to be utilized as formative assessments to help you check for understanding and drive your classroom instruction!

Divide the inside of a file folder into boxes that are slightly larger than small sticky notes. Write students' names in the boxes in alphabetical order, one name per box. Whenever you want to make a note about a student's progress, jot the information on a sticky note and then place it in the appropriate box. Periodically move the sticky notes to students' assessment folders. You'll have valuable information at your fingertips when it's time to prepare report cards. *****adapt for behavior!

Before each lesson I pick a Mystery Student to watch for. They don’t know who I am “watching” out for. Sometimes during a lesson I say, "Wow! I wonder if my Mystery Student is totally on task!" All of a sudden, I have 15 pairs of eyes on me. If the Mystery Student follows the “rules” they receive a reward of some kind. If the Mystery Student does not follow the rules - a brief, vague discussion is had with the whole group about what we should be working on to earn "Mystery Student". Fun and easy

I can board. Would 100% use this in my classrooms so students know what they are doing for the day and also helps administrators and parents see what the objectives are for the day. Much better than having plain objectives written across the board.
