pin now, read later. A VERY WISE WOMAN once told me that if you're working extra hours as a teacher, it doesn't necessarily mean that you're a better teacher - it might mean that you don't manage your time well. i can always use new tips to WORK SMARTER, NOT HARDER, because i work many, many extra hours every week! need to work on time management.
Hall Pass - Print on card stock and put into ID badge holders on coil key chains (both from Walmart). Blank pass at end can be written on with a whiteboard marker and then erased (for students who have to go somewhere else in the building). These are waterproof (seal the top opening with packing tape or buy self-seal ID badge holders) and kids wear them high up on their arms so they don't get wet/dirty in the bathroom.
