work boxes, have one for each student, when they finish their work they can go to their work box and pull out things to work on that the teacher has placed in there. (lets the teacher assign different things for the student/if they need extra practice in an area) - DIFFERENTIATION!
Color clothes pins by soaking in food coloring. In each jar or container, pour boiling water, a tablespoon of vinegar and food coloring drops and mix well. You can use any combination of drops to make varying colors and shades. I used both traditional food colors and the neon food colors to make about a dozen different colors. Add your clothespins and let them soak for at least an hour.
