This works for almost any grades! Great idea to teach social responsibility! Give kids a "Secret Service" mission. Tell them for 1 week, they have to do something for someone else without "blowing their cover." A fun, interactive way to get kids serving others.

Community Post: 15 Awesome Classroom Ideas For Teachers

Ice Breakers | 15 Awesome Classroom Ideas For Teachers. Need for first week back!!

I made these into reward balls. I had the kids pick rewards, then I wrote a reward on each ball. At the start of each day the kids pick a ball and work towards that goal with good behavior! Great for my son with ADHD!

what a fun Idea! last 20 days of school, each balloon has a special activity. Everyday you pop one balloon to find out what it is! (ex. sit wherever you want for the day)

#Motivation This is a great way to create community the first week of school and to create some meaningful art to put on display! Similar to a heart map, this is a name map. Students can create their own, and then compare with their tablemates. Another idea would be to scan in each table together, and on a SmartBoard (if you have one), draw connections between students and similar likes/traits.

This is a great site for using Smart Boards in the classroom. It contains links to other sites, resources and interactive activities to engage learners using the Smart Board.
