Use the bracelets for assigning students into teams for class projects. Or if you want random team assignment, put the bracelets in a paper bag and have students close their eyes and pick one. SO SMART!
pickles and ketchups—On Fridays, place them on the board. Anyone who has turned in all of their assignments is a “pickle” so write their name under the pickle sign. Anyone who is missing an assignment has their name placed under the ketchup bottle. Pickles can “pick” a fun game or activity, while “ketchups” catch up on missing work. It is amazing how quickly assignments come in!
Bazinga - an awesome review game for most any subject and any grade. Students are in teams, I ask questions, and the students answers them. If a team is correct they have the chance to pick a Bazinga Card and we do what it says (e.g. double your score, erase 1 point from another team, switch the team captain of the winning team with the team captain of the losing team, etc.).
