Twitter Door - have a laminated strip for every child and they get time to tweet about something they learned, liked or happened during school that day! Gets them writing and ties in something they're probably already interested in!
Ticket out the door is to "Tweet" or comment about topic.. This is an effective use of social networks AND exit slip!
facebook status for first week of school
First day project. "Friendship tree". All students add their fingerprint and the teacher hangs it in the room as a reminder that we're all friends.- DOING THIS :)
Classroom jobs for any classroom that sees multiple groups of students
This would be a fun display to have-maybe have the kids submit what they think their favorite characters would say!
My teaching career
First Day of School Activities for Big Kids: I just took an hour to thoroughly read all these and they're amazing!
The time I moved to 5th grade...
Brilliant! Ideas for increasing family involvement in student learning. Get everyone involved- even if you're a new teacher!
