I really believe that school just isn't about learning to read and count but also life skills as well. That's why i think have jobs for each student is really important to teach responsibility. I've done this with my school age class and it works great! there is no complaining. they know their jobs and do them. Zack Novak
another quote for my classroom
Think Tank...on Monday put a question for the students to answer. They will then write their answer on a fish and staple it to the board. On Fridays go thru the fish and place the ones who correctly answered the questions in the fish bowl. Draw five every couple of weeks and give those students a reward. Works as a great assessment tool to see how the students are doing with various concepts! Maybe a a trivia contest in the library??
