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, jot the information on a sticky note and then place it in the appropriate box.
Leave personal notes on students' desks with dry erase markers when you know you are going to have a sub the next day or if you just want to show them some extra love! Communication is key! Dry Erase markers wash off of desks in a SNAP!
Great idea for classroom job! One student is selected to be the "Ask Me" person (to help students who need assistance) while the teacher works with small groups-no disruptions for the teacher! Kids would love to take turns doing this!
I use Rachael Ray's Garbage Bowl when I cook. Great idea for the class, too! Whenever the class is doing a cutting activity, put a "garbage bowl" on the table. It collects paper scraps and eliminates paper on the floor.
