Building Student Responsibility: Classroom Jobs

Look's who's been spotted in first grade-love the ribbon on the border too!

A Traveled Teacher: Classroom Reveal - great 2nd grade classroom organization!

2nd Grade Stuff Everytime you get a compliment in the hallway, they add a part to Mr. Potato Head. When he is all put together, have a classroom reward.

A perfectly organized space featuring our Room to Grow Utility Bin (bottom left), Large Utility Tote (marked with "S"), Hang-Up Room Organizer, Hang-Up Home Organizer, Hang-Up Family Organizer (featured L to R), Keep It Caddy, Zipper Pouch (both on top right shelf), Littles Carry-All Caddy (middle top shelf) and Single Organizer (bottom middle shelf).

Word work ideas: each pencil case has a different way to practice spelling words. Spelling words houses in one locations. Students choose word list, grab a pencil case, and practice words. Only have to change the word lists.

Pocket 8 holds a homework graph. Students have to color in a box if they don't return their homework. Students get a homework grade on their report card, so I use this for a grade.

Birthday Balloons! Never forget a birthday present and a super cute decoration for the classroom

World's Greatest Peanut Butter Cookies - Melt-in-your-mouth delicious peanut butter cookies. Husband requests these over and over, and you can't just eat one!

Classroom Systems That Work! (and FANTASTIC MATH CENTERS) - Tunstalls Teaching Tidbits

Sound Check. Free. If you want it completed, you have to click on the HERE link on her blog. Otherwise, you have to make your own. This is perfect! It's so small I can just hang it on or next to the whiteboard. Love. My kids need expectations explicitly set for everything this year.

The Little Fabric Blog: Halloween Chevron Quilt Tutorial. Could do this with a jelly roll, but would need two strips of each color.

It’s a cheesy pasta dish with Kielbasa sausage and garnished with chopped scallions. Enjoy!

Something to try on canvas

double this, two jelly rolls, to make a queen size quilt plus bonus to deter cover hogs. *ahem* brian.....

V and Co.: V and Co.: jelly roll jam quilt free pattern and video tutorial

Stocking hanging board. There's no fireplace in our new house. I wonder if you could put it in a spot where it could be used for sweaters or some other kind of hanging during the year. (Or maybe a curtain rod hung somehow instead of hooks? Then you could add more stockings without much trouble in case of company or more kids. Gotta figure it out by next year.)

Students have to write in a log every time they do not turn in their homework on time and explain themselves. This helps teachers keep track of how many times the same student does not do his/her homework, makes students think about why they did not do their homework, and establishes accountability.
