Power strips with long extension cords for students' phones. Kids think I'm cool for providing charging stations for their personal electronic devices, but I'm actually tricking them into putting them down and staying off them. And if I ever have chargers that are abandoned or unclaimed, I wrap them up in colorful electrical tape and they become community property...—sergem2

I'm the coolest most useful thing in my classroom. —jhoyapneMyself. The teacher is the most important aspect of a classroom!—jakev4d86be1abMy mind. Yep, that's best classroom tool.—daniellea474461055

"Borrowed" from another teacher. My ninth-graders called them cell phone jail. They put their phones in during all tests and quizzes and when I decided we needed to be phone-free. I liked it because I wasn't responsible for their phones (unlike with the big shoe organizers some teachers have). —laurenr57

I originally found a similar idea on Pinterest and modified it to fit my needs. My student center is a place where students can go to get whatever supplies they're missing that they need in class. It keeps kids from taking supplies off my desk and helps the classroom run more efficiently. Love it! —sams420b3d0c1

I have a "parking lot" board in my classroom. Students with off-topic questions can write them on a Post-it for us to answer at another time. Students can ask whatever they like and stay on topic with what's going on right now.—amsmallsdGet the pictured free printable above from Maths Coach's Corner, and H/T to Organizing Classroom Chaos for the different possible uses.

I have one of those battery operated push lights. When the light is on, the class knows they're not allowed to ask to use the restroom. Unless it's an absolute emergency! When it's off, they know they can ask. I'll turn the light on during whole group instruction, that way they aren't missing out. It has helped reduce the amount of students out of the room tremendously!!!—katherinee44797b9aeFirst Grade Spies uses a dollar-store push light for a different useful task — to remind the students…
