DAILY 5 ACTIVITY CHOICE BOARD This was made for SmartBoard, but could easily be turned into a poster or pocket chart.
interactive Daily 5 Check in board. They just drag their picture to their choice and if all the spaces are taken, they will know they have to make a new choice. i don't have a smart board but I do have magnets and pictures. I'm going to go Old School on this!!
SmartBoard for daily5 could be modified for dumb board ;)
daily 5 classroom ideas - Bing Images
(I can do this on a bulletin board with photos of each student too!) Here is my new interactive Daily 5 Check in board. They just drag their picture to their choice and if all the spaces are taken, they will know they have to make a new choice! This is working extremely well and we talk a lot about making sure they get to every daily 5 choice by the end of the week!
interactive Daily 5 choice board- LOVE this idea, instead of using a bulletin board!
Test Prep center tracking sheet--If the student didn't finish, they wrote down what needed to be done next time. Collect on Fridays with all worksheets stapled to it, and give a participation grade for the work. Return the organizer and work to be kept in their Test Prep Rotation folder for the next week (in case they needed to finish anything).

What a good idea to create "must do/may do" board rather than write it on the white board E-V-E-R-Y day! Duh.
Must Do/May Do keeping kids on task, what should i be doing? --good idea for morning work before school starts
Classroom management tool. Must Do/May Do keeping kids on task, what should i be doing? Could have online exercises tagged with QR codes for mobile learning devices to scan and do as well.

Wicked Fun in First Grade: How to use Reading A-Z boooks in your classroom library. After you fold the pages and cut the laminating, (only laminate the cover) you staple the books together. Then, duct tape! Different colored tape for different levels.
I really like the idea of laminating the covers and adding colorful duct tape to sort out levels! I also really liked the idea of book shopping that is mentioned in the blog...students get to shop once or twice a week for new books that are at their level (trade in read books for unread books)! This person also had a great idea of making the tape crazier and more fun as the levels got higher and I know that would be something that would catch my kiddos attention!
Wicked Fun in First Grade: Classroom Reading Leveled Books! I like how she puts the same duct tape on the spine of every book in that level. Kids can pick out books themselves.

Make a bag full of vocabulary words, have students draw one, then spin this spinner and do the resulting activity. All kinds of word fun! Love this idea! :0)
This vocab game might be worth a shot for secondary students...For the activity,toss vocabulary words in a lunch bag. Kids flick the game spinner, then pull out a word. Once they have their word, the fun begins! Students act, draw, rhyme, or define their word. They might also have to put it in a sentence, name what part of speech it is, or give a synonym or antonym for it. It's a game of chance!
WORD GAME~ Make a bag full of vocabulary words, have students draw one, then spin a spinner and do the resulting activity.
Vocabulary Activity #1: Vocabulary Spinner This could be used with vocabulary words from all subjects. The teacher could write a word on a slip of paper and place it in a paper bag. Students could choose a word and spin the spinner to see how they get to express their knowledge of the word.
