Who wouldn't love an "Ice Breaker" that involves chocolate?! In relation to the foreign language classroom, (in a lower level class) colors could be written in the target language. When going around the room, have each student say their color (of the M & M) in Spanish, etc. For an upper level activity, simply have all info. + have students respond in the target language.
Get to know you games. Love this for back to school and morning meeting!

Hide questions under their seat and announce 'hot seat' sometime during the day. Whoever has a question under their seat has to answer it. Perfect way to review/have fun! This is an idea from kindergarten that could be used in ANY grade!!

LOVE this! Hide Common Core questions under their seat and announce 'hot seat' sometime during the day. Whoever has a question under their seat has to answer it :) Perfect way to review/have fun! Preschool-- letter, number, and sight word review
Common Core Math Hot Seats! Before the students enter the classroom, I hide a hot seat or two under their chairs. Then their challenge is to come up with the answer! If they are having trouble answering the question, then they are allowed to 'phone a friend' and ask someone at their table for help.

NOISE: remove one letter at a time when the voice level gets too loud. When NO is left, there is NO talking allowed. Idea for school!
Spell out "NOISE" with foam letters.take a letter away for each time the noise level is too loud. DIY classroom ideas
NOISE…removing one letter at a time when the voice level gets too loud. When NO is left, there is NO more talking! This is a great visual that will hopefully help keep the noise level down. It also gives the kids a chance to regain control of their noise before it gets to that point. I could see this getting ignored by not only the students but teacher as well. You would have to explain rules first thing in the school year and follow through for it to properly work.
NOISE...removing one letter at a time when our voice level gets too loud. When NO is left, there is NO more talking! Good idea for school age children.

Behavior board. When students do something good, pull out a stick with a number on it (1-100). When 10 numbers in a row are colored in, students get a party!

behavior management: put a big 120 chart on a bulletin board for the whole year. Each time the whole does really well with something, have a student pull a numbered popsicle stick and then color in that number on the chart. Once ten squares in a row are colored, the kids get to have a little party, like popsicles at recess on a hot day. This would not count as the holiday party if you still want to have those!.

Hundreds chart for classroom management. When the whole class does something really well one student pulls out a popsicle stick and colors the number found on the stick. Once ten numbers in a row are colored in, a class party is earned.

Phases of the moon, this helps the students understand while making this chart, what they look like. Science standards: 4. The Physical Setting, A. Universe, Grade 4: The patterns of stars in the sky stay the same, although they appear to move across the sky nightly, and different stars can be seen in different seasons.

This is a great first day/week activity for getting to know students, and they will love it because it involves candy! They randomly choose an M out of the bag, depending on the color they choose they will answer a question about themselves. If some students do not like chocolate you could use Skittles instead. 0642

Student info sheet
**UPDATED FOR 2014-2015 School Year!!** Use this at the beginning of the year to get to know your students. Way more fun than a regular worksheet with a list of questions. If you really want to get them working - tell them they can even use 'text message' language! There are 4 pages here. The first one is math specific, the 2nd is for any subject, the third does not have the school year at the top right, and the fourth is blank. You can copy paste it into Word and make text boxes over it if you'd like to make your own questions. **Newest Update** Per the request of my middle schoolers - I have updated the number of 'Friends' from 76 to 237 :) Haha

Love the idea of having students monitor their own progress so they can see their own growth. Students use their own data binders to track their learning and understanding of each standard/unit.

Students track their OWN data and learning/understanding of the new Common Core!! Each student can have their own & then we use it to create classroom data.

Part of what got me thinking about students tracking their own data... track their OWN data and learning/understanding of the new Common Core!! The levels of learning coorelate to Marzano's the Art and Science of Teaching$.

Adding Details! We always tell kids to "add details" in their writing. This easy visual helps clarify what we're talking about. A mini-lesson (or two or three) on each strategy will produce results in student writing much more than simply saying, "Add details!" ever will. Love it!
