I made up something like this last year for summer school. I'd say, "Give me 5." Kids would have to raise their little paws, give me their 2 eyes, 2 ears, and one closed mouth to show me they were being respectful, good listeners and ready to learn. It was effective at getting their attention.

This is the BEST idea. As a teacher there will be a lot of this. As a student I saw a lot of this myself. I wasn't talking I was singing. Singing, whispering, whatever you were still TALKING. I would definitely use this in a classroom.

Cute idea... good way to get them to learn square roots without them knowing it because they know the numbers under the post its! It is very inexpensive and not at all time consuming to make. The only problem I can think of with this would be the postit notes loosing their ability to stick onto the clock's face.

Quote wall in my classroom- throughout the school year my students and I hang quotes that are inspiring, funny, or that we discover in our reading. Sometimes student work makes it on the wall. At the end of the year each student got to choose something from the wall to take home and keep.

LOVE this idea! Class timeline--remembering all the awesome stuff we've done! {Would be best to keep this running all year long... kind of like a scrapbook timeline... maybe choose photos each month and write captions for each in a guided or shared writing format.}

I have used this is my classroom for three years. It works like a charm. The students love to see how many gum balls they can earn during the given time. I have either set the timer for the full amount of work time or set it for smaller increments of time. As a reward, if they reach the goal, I sometimes give a piece of bubble gum, or something toward a classroom goal for some other reward...For example I might give them a letter toward building the word Compliments.
