Dot Day 2012 How will your students "make their mark?"

Free online book (Great for teaching character traits)

use to introduce glue, one drop on each dot - now that's just genius

Star Student Poster

The Dot

Adorable anchor poster to remind your students to put their names on the paper. The best part is that it's FREE! :)

With having so many workbooks inside desks, I just swipe a fat Mr. Sketch marker along the bottom pages of the book. That way, when the books are piled inside their desks, they can see the colors! When I ask my students to take out a book, I'll say something like, "Please take out your Grammar Green book!" It really does help, and it makes transitions quicker and easier! And after a few weeks, my kiddos will be telling me which book is which!

Help your students understand what the 2012 presidential election is all about with a little help from the Government Fairy herself! Might be nice for next year, wish I would have seen it earlier

I do love The Important Book

Peacemaker or Peacebreaker~ I can hear myself asking a student, "Which one do you want to be, a peaceMaker or a peaceBreaker?" Love this idea!

I love this for the end of the year or when a student moves

teaching students to take responsibility for actions. LOVE this!!
