Another pinner said: There is an envelope laminated for each assignment due. I started with ten. I can just write the activity on the envelope and the kids go there to turn it in. Then they check off their name on the back. So I know exactly who didn't turn it in. It also makes things so much easier to grade!

"Brain Break" sticks! Each popsicle stick has an activity on it {like spin 3x, jump rope, macarena, seat swap, etc...}. When I see that the kids are starting to fade away, I stop and say "man, our brains need to take a break...lets do a brain break."

One of the teachers I work with suggested this idea at our first faculty meeting this year and I thought it was so smart! When kids are pulled for speech, OT, reading groups, etc., they put the cup on their desk to say they are out of the room. It makes it easy to glance around the room and see who has been pulled.
