FUN! Twitter door- have a laminated strip for every child and they get time to update status about something they learned, liked or happened during school that day!

I LOVE this! Classroom Facebook! What a fun writing center and at the end of the year you can collect the students' updates and send them home.

Brilliant! Ideas for increasing family involvement in student learning. Get everyone involved- even if you're a new teacher!

When a child is unfriendly in class, they have to pick a random act of kindness. Better than taking away recess/making say sorry.
